    Day 67 of Bush/Cheney deregulation oil disaster

    It all started with that secret meeting Cheney had with all oil executives. Funny that they won't release the memos from that meeting are they hiding something?

    Nice try... blaming Bush for I-Bamas lack of action. Not to worry.. it's ONLY the greatest human made eco disaster in all of history.

    I know you're capable of better. Surprise me.

    Have you no shame?
    Is there no limit to the Blame Bush syndrome?

    Did Bush blame his predecessor Bill Clinton for Hurricane Katrina?
    What a pathetic joke.

    Never heard those words before.. "Obama" and .. "react"
     
    You are a real peach.. We do need to look at all industrial equiptment built during clinton reign of terror...

    I-Bamas non reaction was no doubt calculated. Pity HE has no concern for this disaster or it's future impacts. HE cares only for.. HIM.

    What a POS. (opinion)

    So deregulation makes oil wells under water leak? SO this would mean all of them are leaking, right? Or was this the only one built on the planet during that time frame?

    So why hasn't Obama changed anything? If deregulation caused the leak, shouldn't he have started there?

    That would seem to obvious.

    So by your logic anything built while Obama is president that fails, it's his fault? Good just making sure I understand your logic.

    Yes deregulation does cause leaks. The industry was using shortcuts and bypassed safety procedures all approved by the MMS that was gutted under Bush/Cheney and that Sec. Salazar was looking into.

    This administration can only fix so much in day,with all the damage caused by B/C to America they can't get to everything in time.

    So did the industry use shortcuts or did Bush/CHeney gut them, which would mean they were not using shortcuts.

    Which is it and why aren't there any others?

    Gutting MMS led to the shortcuts and bypassed safety procedures. I believe there are more rigs with similar problems that deepwater had.

    Lazy "thinking" on your part. Companies take shortcuts and bypass safety procedures whether there's an agency or not. You are naive to think that this wouldn't have happened if the agency wasn't gutted. Do you really think BP got wind that the agency was gutted and thought great, now's our opportunity to cut corners and risk losing multi-billions. Yeah, that's what we'll do. Let's get this strategy in place and cross our fingers nothing fails.

    And yet cars are faulty (toyota), food gets tainted, airplanes are faulty, subways are faulty. Thanks for proving my point. That was too easy

    And if these agencies were gutted what would happen. The oil industry had problems and the B/C deregulation made it worse.

    Nothing more than what already happens. How many oil rigs exist today? How many have had the problem BP is having? Nuff said.

    So let me see, BP was thinking great let's cut corners so we can lose all this money with oil we could be selling.

    What a plan I tell you!

    I am sure BP saved more money than is spewing into the gulf every minute, don't you? Care to do the math?

    No, BP cut corners "logically" to save time and money on the Deepwater rig. That's usually why this is done, and having an agency that was/is nothing more than a rubber stamp made that corner cutting easier.

    But hey if you want to be in Rep. Bartons' and BP's corner by all means have fun with that.

    Actually, why are we blaming any politician? Honestly, do you really think any president, secretary, congressional committee, etc, couldn't be hoodwinked in a NY minute on so complex a subject? Here's a hint: it was the freakin' greedy b*st*rd oil companies that took chances, and one of their horses died on the track, and its rotting, stinking carcas is going to smell up our lives for decades. If deregulation is to blame, why did it happen?  It happened because the oil companies sold a bill of goods to the government that all those costly rules were unnecessary, anti-business, price-raising overkill.  Congress bought it and we pay... as usual.
