NYT On Bush Endgame: "So Little Time, So Much Damage"

According to The New York Times (11/4/08), the Bush administration is scrambling to do as much damage as possible before they vacate the White House. All of it is being done with little publicity, since it does not fit the agenda that the American people want, especially after electing Barack Obama. In fact, they are making the President-Elect's task all the harder. But would you expect else than a final big bash of Bush destruction? From "So Little Time, So Much Damage":

While Americans eagerly vote for the next president, here’s a sobering reminder: As of Tuesday, George W. Bush still has 77 days left in the White House — and he’s not wasting a minute.

President Bush’s aides have been scrambling to change rules and regulations on the environment, civil liberties and abortion rights, among others — few for the good. Most presidents put on a last-minute policy stamp, but in Mr. Bush’s case it is more like a wrecking ball. We fear it could take months, or years, for the next president to identify and then undo all of the damage.

I recommend that you read more about the Bush administration's closing shots at civil liberties, the environment, abortion rights, economics and Guatanamo. To do so, click here.
