Bush seeks cuts in wildfire prevention funds.

And out of the other side of his mouth, he's blaming environmentalists for "contributing to raging forest fires such as the ones in Arizona and Colorado by blocking the federal government's effort to remove dangerous underbrush."

To make this more accurate, an extra clause is needed, "...as part of a clearcutting operation contracted to timber companies."

Never mind that 80% of what's been burning in Arizona isn't forested in the first place. Wouldn't want facts to get in the way of this administration. No sirree.
