President Bush had to cancel his Earth Day, environmental photo-op because the environment wouldn't cooperate with him.
The President planned to pose with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as a backdrop ("Smoky" playing into his "Clear Skies" initiative). But hail and thunderstorms were predicted.
So the President changed to an airport stop with some Earth Day remarks, delivered amid the wafting smell of jet exhaust.
Environmentalists -- always critical of the President's policies -- say you push nature far enough and nature pushes back. No sense in adding fuel to their fire by letting Mother Nature rain on his parade. (WashPost)
