    The Obama administration is sticking with a George W. Bush-era decision to deny polar bears endangered species status.
    In a court filing Wednesday, the Fish and Wildlife Service defended the previous administration’s decision to give the polar bear the less-protective “threatened” species designation, a move that will frustrate environmentalists who hoped for stronger protections under the Endangered Species Act

    Gateway:

    Despite the fact that the bear populations are booming, the Obama administration set aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical habitat” for polar bears recently. The action that could restrict future drilling for oil and gas development. After all, it never was about the polar bears. It’s always been about their far left anti-American agenda.


    Polar bear encounters on the North Slope oil fields have risen to record levels the last two years.
    There are 5 times as many polar bears today as there were 50 years ago:

    You can't expect him to fix every incompetent thing Bush/Cheney/Rove did now can you.
