"Libertarian" group funded by GOP decries massive power of Evil Environmentalists

KOS had several stories about how Rove is digging up what he can find to pin the blame for NOLA flooding on environmentalists. The Competetive Enterprise Institute is a GOP funded shell organization that shills talking points for the administration. Read this bit and see if you can pick out the talking points. Just in case you don't remember, the Army Corps of Engineers wasn't prevented from finishing the levee work by environmentalists, but rather by George Bush's short-sighted money grubbing ways. In fact, funding for the 17th street levee that failed was axed by the administration so that they could pay Halliburton and others to wage a meaningless war half the world away.

I thought it was all state and local governments' fault?

Yeah, State and local officials (democrats only) and grassroots environmentalists. Clearly the framers wanted corporate interests to run the country, not the people. How can you be so foolish Doug?
