Bush and the EPA pass an environmental bill.
so the democrats who are so concerned with the environment say 'thank you Bush for passing higher automobile standards' right?
the key to democrat politics is to take the republicans who passes higher standards and keep him the enemy of the environment.
so the California Democrats get together and say they want to pass even stricter standards, and they feel that each state should set their own.
which is a terrible idea,AND THE KNOW IT, every car would have to be made differently for every state.
so they call their liberal buddies and get a couple of other states to say 'yeah, if California raises standards , so will we'
so the end result is, Bush passed stricter standards but he's still the bad guy because he STOPPED even stricter standards, created in the minds of liberals from California
