Bush Should Seek More Conservative Staffers

In the Clinton-Gore Administration, how many pro-life, tax-cutting, anti-gay rights, anti-Kyoto Treaty employees do you think there were? It would appear that the answer is none.

In the current Bush Administration, there appear to be not nearly enough. In fact, this administration is holding over many of the Clinton-Gore people who oppose their policies.

National Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is still being observed at the Transportation Department with Secretary Norman Mineta encouraging every employee "to celebrate the contributions that gays and lesbians have made - and continue to make - to the department and the nation."

According to one environmental scientist, not only has the Bush Administration kept many of the Clinton-Gore environmental fundamentalists, it is recruiting from environmental organizations. Compromise on matters of principle is a recipe for disaster. This administration had better focus soon on right and wrong or it will lose its following and those who voted for the president.
