Operation Photo Op, Renewable Energy edition

Bush talked about energy conservation during the State of the Union address, even though he had just cut jobs at the Energy Department's renewable energy laboratory. He needed them for a photo op today, so guess what? The jobs are back! I wonder how soon after the visit is over the budget cuts will be restored? A week? Remember the Katrina speech, all about how we were going to help the poor. Bush = Liar.

Jobs cut at energy lab restored before Bush visit

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Energy Department said it has come up with $5 million to immediately restore jobs cut at a renewable energy laboratory President George W. Bush will visit on Tuesday, avoiding a potentially embarrassing moment as the president promotes his energy plan.
