    Pelosi blames Bush administration for BP oil spill.
    By: Joel S. Gehrke Jr.

    05/29/10 7:38 AM EDT
    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., blamed the Bush administration for any lack of oversight leading up to the Gulf oil spill. The Obama administration, on the other hand, is blameless.
    From Talk Radio News Service:
    “Many of the people appointed in the Bush administration are still burrowed in the agencies that are supposed to oversee the [oil] industry,” Pelosi said when asked if Democrats could have prevented or mitigated the crisis by keeping a closer watch on the industry.
    Added the Speaker, “the cozy relationships between the Bush administration’s agency leadership and the industry is clear…I’ve heard no complaints from my members about the way the president has handled it,” Pelosi stated.
    On Friday, the Washington Examiner requested that Speaker Pelosi’s office release the list of Bush appointees to whom she was referring. We’ll let you know when we hear back.

    These peoples are absolutely incredible. Add this To Dodd blaming bush on Imusus show...

    What did you expect? Let Bush off and out of everything. Someone will end up saying he had some to do with World War 2 before it over with. Democrats will blame anyone for everything but can't take the blame when it's in their front yard!


    She probably don't have a clue where the leak is located.

      CaptOT is right. However the Big O is not going to be able to shake off the way he responded to the spill. No matter how he tries to spin it.

      And as far as Pelosi is concerned. Nobody and I mean Nobody believes anything she says anymore. She is a certifiable 'LOON.'

          The BP oil spill has been called Obama's Katrina by the conservative media.

          A very curious comparison given how conservatives praised Bush's handling of Katrina.
          They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

          I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

            What's your point? It shouldn't be surprising that liberals can dish it out but can't take it. Boo hoo.

                I see it just the opposite.

                I see they're taking just fine. Just giving back what they took for eight years.

                The first Bush recession? Clinton's fault. The 9/11 attacks? Definitely Clinton's fault. (Remember The Path to 9/11?) Indeed, they even tried to blame the 2008 Bush recession on Bill Clinton. They never gave up.

                And of course, before Barack Obama was even sworn into office, they began calling the last Bush recession "the Obama recession"

                Now here's the real fun part. Conservatives bellyache that there is too much government interference and that business should be left to its own means.

                The spill in the Gulf is a prime example of what happens when private business is allowed to monitor itself.

                    Yeah, the soviet union was much more successful. Too bad we can't be more like that...

                    Would you be so kind as to explain for all of us how more government control and interference would have prevented this from happening? I don't actually expect you come up with an intelligent answer, you'll probably change the subject or lie. Either way, we're standing by for your response.

                      It's a shame how it's nothing but pointing fingers at other parties anymore. I'm sure Bush was on the rig and made it explode himself

                        It is Obama's house now. If there were issues within the departments he has had over a year to clean house. Apparently Obama is just fine with things as they are.

                        I imagine the worst May in 70 years for the DOW will be Bush's fault too. Obama was handed an economy on the rebound. He started attacking Wall Street and ruined a perfectly good recovery.

                          Red herring. Try again.

                          There are safety devices that could have been mandated as is done in other countries.

                          Link

                          The oil well spewing crude into the Gulf of Mexico didn't have a remote-control shut-off switch used in two other major oil-producing nations as last-resort protection against underwater spills.

                          The lack of the device, called an acoustic switch, could amplify concerns over the environmental impact of offshore drilling after the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon rig last week.
                          The article speaks for itself.

                            When has Obama or even any of his followers ever stated such a thing? This one came out of your hind quarters.

                            The economy was in recession for an entire year prior to Obama's being sworn into office. The market was spiraling downward hitting its lowest point in March, 2009.

                            Reading, it's FUNdamental.

                            Clearly you don't do it.

                              If one read all the whinings by conservatives after 9/11, one would have believed Clinton had flown all four airplanes.

                              Like I stated earlier. Conservatives can dish it out, they are showing they can't take it.
