Agenda trumps facts in Obama administration

Byron York:
During the Bush years, liberals and Democrats often accused the administration of ignoring science and expert opinion if it conflicted with conservative ideological goals. That would change, we were told, if rational, pragmatic Democratic leaders were given a chance to run the government.

Now we have had two years in which Democrats, with cherished ideological objectives of their own, have been fully in charge of Washington. Given what has taken place, can the president really claim that his is the party that values facts and science and argument above all?

Read the whole thing for some clear examples of where the Obama administration has ignored and manipulated scientific findings in order to advance an agenda that is not supported by the evidence.
