So Full Of It...

What idiots. They scheduled a P.R. stunt promoting Bush's push for renewable energy research at the lab where he just cut funding for renewable energy research.

On Tuesday, Bush plans to visit the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., to talk about speeding the development of biofuels.The lab, with a looming $28 million budget shortfall, had announced it was cutting its staff by 32 people, including eight researchers.

But in advance of Bush's visit, Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman over the weekend directed the transfer of $5 million to the private contractor that runs the lab, so the jobs can be saved.

We saw this coming a few weeks ago.
