Posted on 12/24/2004 7:55:44 AM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the Bush Administration's new land management planning regulations for national forests, which were announced this afternoon:
"The regulations released by the Bush Administration today are an insult to every American who cares about our national forests. By greatly weakening critical protections, the regulations will increase the exploitation of our natural resources by private companies without ensuring the survival of the forests for future generations.
"The Administration's draft rule, issued two years ago, was roundly and rightly criticized as a giveaway to corporate timber, mining, and oil interests. Apparently, the Bush Administration took that as encouragement, ignoring repeated requests to let scientists offer input into the new rules. The Administration instead pushed ahead with its plans to reduce the role of scientists and the public in managing our national forests, and the environment will pay the price.
"The national forests belong to the American people, but these regulations were written with the special interests, not the public interest, in mind. The Administration should go back to the drawing board."
I don't understand how this person can continue to talk with a face of plastic.
Yes Nancy, please explain to us how envirowhacko policies prevented a couple of million acres from burning to the ground over the last several years.
I believe a barf alert is called for...
Liberals have treated the Western States like mindless simpletons for decades. I see they're still at it. Keep it up, Nancy!
And the idiot just lost an election.
I'm having difficulty trying to separate what are her quotes, from what the story writer is saying! The selected editorial comment above, is in a paragraph that starts off with quotation marks, but no closing quotation marks!!!
If this paragraph wasn't entirely a quote of Nancy P's, then it is extreme, vulgar bias on the part of the reporter and Yahoo News!!!
Nancy should be aware that the make-up she puts on with a caulking gun is not environmentally sound...
Would somebody, PLEASE, straightjacket that woman!
The self-styled scientists that "managed" the woodlands during the disastrous Klintoon admin, helped burn down hundreds of thousands of acres of pine forests in the West and we haven't forgotten. Only RATs and the Sierra Club forget their role in these fires. There's a sign placed by these idiots at the site of a huge forest fire on the North Rim of Grand Canyon that says that "forest fires are nature's way of cleansing forest brush and debris and making way for new growth." There are no more trees there for the envirowhacos to protect nor is new growth appearing. Perhaps if we wait two hundred years the trees might begin to grow again. Surely Pelosi will still be around to see them. As a vampire, she cannot taste death.
The president IS responding to the public, Nancy. The so-called "scientists," with their no-cut policies stoked up some pretty devastating forest fires these last few years.
Nancy lives in a house made largely of wood just like the rest of us. She's just proving to be a mouthpiece for the environazis.
"I don't understand how this person can continue to talk with a face of plastic."
I wondered the same thing. Also, how does she find time to think about anything with all of considerable time spent trying to look good?
First of all this isn't a story written by a journalist.
The lunatic libs at Yahoo hid the fact that this was written by Pelosi's staff and released as a press release:
