Flood the Zone Friday: Unstable Stewardship http://www.georgewbush.com/GetActive/WriteNewspapers.aspx?
This is where it gets good. Today is "Unstable Stewardship Friday" and we're taking the Bushies to task for their anti-environmental policies:
- Bush's EPA is claiming that they can't regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act
- Mike Leavitt, Bush's nominee for EPA Chief, is refusing to state his views on environmental issues out of respect to the Senate. We thought maybe he was just taking cues from Bush's judicial nominees who realized that it is best for rabid partisans to keep mum. Oh yeah, and when he was elected Governor, he fired 75 government employees who worked for a state agency that had caught his family breaking the law. Not that there's anything wrong with, um, spiteful retribution by elected officials.
- The Bush Administration is particularly fond of leaving nuclear waste near major supplies of drinking water, recently asking Congress to overturn a court ruling barring them from endangering people's water.
- OK, I'll admit it, that last link is to the Natural Resource Defense Council's page on The Bush Record. And they're getting paid to do this and they're good. You gotta gripe or environmental topic of choice. They'll have it researched.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
