<Wetlands actually function to filter water that enters into aquifers. They are rich habitats for an enormous array of wildlife. If they had been allowed to exist in the Mississippi river delta, they would serve as natural flood control. Many developed wetlands are in flood prone areas and development within those areas is therefore prone to floods. Surprise! >

Nonsense. Bush is just trying to show that he is a long-range planner. Since future oil reserves, about 200 million years from now, depend on the swamps that exist today Bush has to support their existance. Otherwise he will be falling short of his blind support of big oil.
