This is really funny.
President Bush, sitting on a 39 percent approval rating, is still traveling the country trying to promote initiatives from his long-forgotten State of the Union speech when his handlers decided to send him to a renewable energy lab in Colorado to highlight his new-found interest in promoting renewable energy sources.
It turns out that lab just got hit with massive budget cuts recently thanks to Bush’s inept mishandling of the economy and 32 people, including 8 researchers, had to be laid off just two weeks ago.
So Karl Rove got on the phone to Energy Secretary Sam Bodman and had him funnel $5 million to the lab so that the jobs could be restored - at least temporarily - so as not to spoil Bush’s photo opportunity.
What a bunch of incompetent clowns we have running our government.
