“White House Refused to Open Pollutants E-Mail”
I’m not really sure why I’m still surprised at headlines like this, now that we’ve endured almost eight years of George W. Bush. But I am. From the article:
The White House in December refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, senior E.P.A. officials said last week.
My life would be so much easier if I could do this. Student loans? No, don’t think I’m going to worry about those. Tuition bill? Nah, that’s far too much money, I’ll just let it sit there until they decide to reduce it.
Honestly, how the hell does anyone,
even especially our President get away with this? I didn’t know it was possible for me to be even more depressed about the job Bush is doing…
