Skip to comments.Sen. Chris Dodd Blames Bush For Oil Spill
Posted on 05/25/2010 10:52:45 AM PDT by i88schwartz
When asked by Don Imus on his morning program if the Obama was to blame for lack of response to the oil spill, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) blamed the Bush administration. "Well, you know, they come into office a year ago with all of this. And so, after the last eight years," he said.
At that point, Imus interrupted and asked if he has "lost" his mind for blaming Bush. "The President has been in office for a year and a half and they've been dragging their feet and even people like James Carville said that his behavior 'has been at the very best lackadaisical and naive' and you're still going to try to blame Bush?" he said.
To lay this at Obama's doorstep, in light of years and years of regulatory permissiveness when it comes to these kinds of operations occurring -- it didn't occur in the last year and a half," he said. "I mean, you know that as well as I do. You can't lay this all at Obama's door anymore than I can say," Dodd responded.

When is this thug going to jail?
Why is Dodd not serving hard time in jail?
Well, Dodd doesn’t think the implosion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac was his fault either. So it stands to reason that whatever other disaster happens, it has to be George Bush’s fault...or BP’s fault...or someone. Can’t be Dodd or his party. Noooooooo
Dodd is so stupid he should serve in the senate.
When is this thug going to jail?
Hopefully after November, or 2012 or 2014.
Honestly, the blame Bush thing is getting old. The liberal thing is getting old.
I”m surprised Imus had Dodd on, given he bailed on Imus when that nonsense went on at MSNBC a few years ago.
It’s above the pay grade of a Community “Organizizer”.
For accepting a crooked payoff, errr preferential loan.
Didn't someone ever teach these dolts that accepting responsibility for one's actions is what sane people do.
But wait...Obama wants the world to stop pointing fingers...well, at him anyway!

“...Why is Dodd not serving hard time in jail?...”
He’s a protected dimoCRACK.
They really miss Bush. Dems make all the decisions and ram bills like Health Reform through, But still cant resist their old habit of Blaming Bush for stuff they are responsible for, at least based on their own standards.
Dictatorships have always needed enemies since the beginning of time. Any reason why this one should be any different? None that I can think of.
Where is Imus with the ...”But Sen. Dodd, you, specifically democrats, have been in charge of congress since 2007...why hasn’t Congress fixed the lax regulation since 2007 ?”
Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb? George Bush will be.
Even Imus was mortified.
IMUS, for God’s sake!!
