    for anything, but he did do one thing that I liked.  Just one.
    And this is it:

    Bush Declares Marine Preserves In Pacific
    http://www.npr.org/...

    President Bush has declared Tuesday three vast new marine national monuments way out in the Pacific Ocean, protecting an area larger than California.

    These preserves are designed to conserve areas that are unspoiled — and largely unvisited — by human beings, including the deepest canyon on earth, the Mariana Trench.

    Bush has declared much of the Mariana Trench — some 36,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific — and waters around some nearby islands as a marine national monument. He's also declared as monuments the area around Rose Atoll, part of the Territory of American Samoa, and the seas surrounding seven islands that are U.S. territories scattered in the Pacific.

    Maybe he hated national parks, but he did do this.  I think I read somewhere that Laura was behind it...

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

    •  That is one of the two things he has done that (3+ / 0-)

      I approve of.

      I think he did some good on Aids in Africa as well.

      Both of those things don't make a dent in the mountain of evil.

      Republican tax policies have led to financial conditions which have caused Republicans to demand cuts to programs they have always opposed.
