It’s not Bush’s fault: No one overseeing Deepwater Horizon was appointed by Bush

Nancy Pelosi stretches the truth again

“It’s Bush’s fault. It’s Bush’s fault. It’s Bush’s fault.” Are you as tired of hearing those words as we are?

For example, reported that Nancy Pelosi blamed the Gusher in the Gulf on the former president a few weeks ago.

“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.

Facts are such annoying things. Luckily, one news organization did what the liberal media hasn’t done, which is to conduct a little research to find out if Pelosi’s accusation is true. Try not to be too shocked when we tell you that Pelosi was lying.

The Washington Examiner reveals the results of its research:

The Washington Examiner has obtained biographic information on the MMS officials responsible for overseeing BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig at the time it exploded, from the Gulf Region Director to the last inspector to set foot on the rig. Most of these federal employees started with the agency decades ago. Not one was a presidential appointment of George W. Bush, although one longtime MMS employee in question was promoted to his current position during the Bush Administration.

We live in a very strange world where oil companies aren’t permitted to drill and news organizations apparently aren’t allowed to dig.

Is there a man on this planet that has to wake up next to that every morning?


The BP rig that exploded was only recently given a license to drill…by the Obama administration.
