Sportsmen Against Bush/Cheney

With their support deteriorating, Republicans now risk losing yet another group which supported them and got screwed in exchange–sportsmen. Field & Stream has an editorial on Bush and Cheney placing the energy industry over protecting the nation’s public lands:

Rod and gun in hand, and backing the Second Amendment right to own firearms, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have won the hearts of America’s sportsmen. Yet the two men have failed to protect outdoor sports on the nation’s public lands. With deep ties to the oil and gas industry, Bush and Cheney have unleashed a national energy plan that has begun to destroy hunting and fishing on millions of federal acres throughout the West, setting back effective wildlife management for decades to come.
