Though federal regulations require offshore drilling locations to be inspected by the Department of the Interior's Minerals Mining Service every 30 days, those inspections have repeatedly not happened since the Deepwater Horizon site was permitted by MMS in 2001 including one out of every four months since President Obama's inauguration.
ABC News has learned that in the 16 months from January 2009 through April 2010 MMS failed to inspect Deepwater Horizon four times in May 2009, August 2009, December 2009, and January 2010.

The list, ping
and now they want to regulate wall street just like they did the banks..hahahhaha ..
Rule One: Never inspect a prospective donor’s business.
Rule Two: government is too big, too dependent on money to protect the American people and do its job.
Wait until it hits health care....
“never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by stupidity”
Wall St? Wait 'till they get their hands entirely around health care. A paper cut will soon become a terminal illness.
This would only be a big deal if Obama had received huge campaign contributions from BP related interests. He would never do anything so obvious as trade political favors for money. Would he?
Not for nothing, but oil is a strategic resource and the govt is doing a shi*** job of helping.
For all we know, it was an act of God....
I’ll bet that whoever the inspector was, they were a union type zero supporter who get’s seasick in the bathtub.
I'm surprised the GOP isn't hammering away at this. It happened under Obama's watch and he will lose support in his own party for it.

Including for... Obama Presidency
BP better come up with some BIG “campaign contributions”.
Funneled via some secret numbered account in Switzerland.
They got favored status with their donations to Obama.
Time to pay up MUCH more to keep that $75 million cap on damages in place!!!
“He would never do anything so obvious as trade political favors for money. Would he? “
No he wouldn’t. He only trades political favors for A LOT of money.
