Oh, but we're told that it is George Bush that ...

... puts politics over science!

Then there's Nobel Prize winner and climate alarmist cum laude ... Al Gore:

Noted energy expert and Princeton physicist Dr. Will Happer has sharply criticized global warming alarmism. Happer, author of over 200 scientific papers and a past director of energy research at the Department of Energy, called fears over global warming "mistaken".

In 1991, Happer was appointed director of energy research for the US Department of Energy. In 1993, he testified before Congress that the scientific data didn't support widespread fears about the dangers of the ozone hole and global warming, remarks that caused then-Vice President Al Gore to fire him. "I was told that science was not going to intrude on public policy," he said. "I did not need the job that badly." (Source.)

What's the difference when George Bush does this and Al Gore does the same? Easy: Al Gore means well. He wants to save us from ourselves. He's a good person. Therefore, criticism directed his way is "hate," "fear-mongering" and "evil." (All according to "progressives," that is.)
