Gulf Oil Spill is Obama’s baby
Find it odd that throughout the entire BP/Gulf Oil fiasco, not one single time that I’m aware of Obama has NOT blamed it on Bush? He’s blamed everything else on Bush, so why not this too? Everyone KNOWS Bush sold out to big oil. So why not state the obvious everyone is expecting to hear?
Because this is totally Obama’s baby.
Federal documents show that the Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) gave BP a “categorical exclusion” on April 6, 2009 to commence drilling with Deepwater Horizon even though it had not produced the impact study required by a law known as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The report would have included probable ecological consequences in the event of a spill.
I have told several people that I found it strange that it appears that several emergency devices that I would have expected to be in place on Deepwater Horizon were not and that’s the reason they can’t shut it off now. That’s probably due in large part because Liz Binbaum waived traditional requirements. I’m gonna guess she got her “guidance” from Ken Salazar, the Interior Secretary to the President.
No one seems to be delving too deep into this angle. But, unlike Katrina, this wasn’t a natural disaster. And unlike Katrina, there is definitely fault to be had.
Still don’t think Obama’s got something going on here? His reaction to the spill was to suspend all new permits for 30 days.
There are no new pending permits:
Obama has since ordered a “30 day review” before new permits are issued, but this is a patently hollow gesture since no new permits are up for consideration in the coming month. In a bid to lessen mounting popular outrage, administration officials have combined this meaningless review with tough talk about holding BP financially liable for the spill’s damages.
More change you can believe in huh?
I’m sure Nancy Pelosi will cite Ken Salazar and Liz Binbaum as even two more examples of the Democrat Culture of Corruption.
