We're all aware that Bush and the EPA deny California's waiver to enforce legislation to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, with repeated attempts to get around Congressional oversight by providing redacted documents in repsonse to subpeonas.
Now apparently the White House and Dept. of Transportation is attempting an end-run around Congressional intent and states rights by burying some fine print on page 357 of a proposal for more rigorous CAFE standards as required by the energy bill passed last year.
Bush is trying to portray himself as "doing a lot for the environment". It's more along the lines of what Bush, the EPA, and now the DOT is trying to do to the environment.
