WaPo Mum on White House Effort to Exploit Gulf Crisis


The Washington Post’s coverage of yesterday’s White House meeting doesn’t address the outrage that occurred (which I noted here), but it does mention that environmentalist Joe Mendelson — director of global warming policy for the National Wildlife Federation — questioned Republicans’ resistance to a sweeping carbon cap.

“Republican leadership emerged from a meeting today saying nothing different than from a year ago,” Mendelson said in a statement. Yes, that is odd. Then again, a few things have come out in the past year.

The Republican leadership should be slamming this effort to exploit the Gulf-spill crisis.
