Bush Administration Tries to Weasel Out of Agreement to Protect Grouse

I'm counting the days until we're done with the Worst President Ever.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has asked a federal judge to allow it to withdraw from a recent agreement concerning a timeline for deciding whether sage grouse should be listed as an endangered species across much of the Rocky Mountain West.

The agency, in documents filed in U.S. District Court here, said it "inadvertently" entered into the agreement without proper review, and that the agreement could delay its decision about whether the chicken-sized grouse deserves federal protection.

Such a declaration could lead to new restrictions on residential, oil and gas and agricultural development.

Apparently, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies is about to release a report about the grouse that contains something called "science". Since the Bush Administration is faith based, they don't want something like rational thought to interfere with their decision making process. So, they wanted to ram this through ahead of time. Otherwise they would have to take into account the scientific conclusions of the Association. We can't have that interfere with Dead Eye Dick and his buddies now can we?

These people are just evil. There is no other word to describe them. They will do or say anything to screw over the planet for future generations. Evil.
