Accountability: Democrats have finally gotten around to blaming the Bush administration for the Gulf oil disaster. We wonder when this administration will take responsibility for anything.
Asked on the "Imus in the Morning" program Tuesday on Fox Business Network if the Obama administration is to blame for the damaging fallout of the spill, Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., actually said, "Well, you know, they come into office a year ago with all of this. And so, after the last eight years ... " before being interrupted by a perplexed Imus.
We too are perplexed. George W. Bush was blamed for the federal response to Katrina, even though the state of Louisiana and the city of New Orleans, both governed by Democrats at the time, dropped the ball as first and primary responders.
It wasn't Bush who ordered people into the Superdome instead of out of the city. It wasn't Bush who left school buses to sit empty in a flooded parking lot. But this spill is on Obama's watch.
Unlike Katrina, where disputes and confusion quickly arose between federal, state and local authorities over who should have done what and when, the handling of this accident in federal waters was a clear federal responsibility. It was the failure of this administration to implement contingency plans in place since 1994 to contain and burn the oil that made the situation far worse. It's not Bush's fault.
President Obama has just made his second trip to the Gulf in a nearly 40-day span. Bush made something like seven in the same time span while supervising, among other things, the Coast Guard plucking something like 30,000 people off their rooftops to safety.

I’m not good at identifying waterfowl, especially in a petroleum-coated condition, but that looks like a picture of a lame duck.
Oh, someone needs to photoshop that bird on a chain around Obama’s neck.
Back to the Future Headline “One Term President Obama Explains that Failed Presidency was due to Bad Policies put into place by President Bush”
Obama is a Fig Plucker,
He Plucks Figs,
But he won’t go down as the best Fig Plucker there ever was....
Prayer for today:
Blaming Bush for it in 5, 4, 3, .....
Oboma makes George Bush look like George Washington.
George Bush makes Oboma look like the White House janitor.
Have you ever noticed how much The Soros’ Towel Boy resembles Ray Nagin?
Now a year and a half after he left office, everything is still his fault.
Will the American voter ever wake up and see what the Democrat party is?
Also notice it was only six weeks prior to the attack that President Bush was briefed about the coming attack, which was unclear when it would come and exactly where.
Apparently Bush should have rounded up all middle eastern men and had them put in a Gitmo camp or something. The Democrats, Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman would have been totally cool with that.
He might as well have. They could not have been any more over the top in hatred for him if he had!
Other issues blamed on GW Bush:
1) Brokeback Mt NOT winning Academy Award for Best Picture
2) The Germans bombing Pearl Harbor in 1941
3) Oprah’s annual weight gain
4) The breakup of the Beatles
5) Lebron’s inability to win a NBA championship
6) January snow in Syracuse NY
7) Texas losing to ‘Bama in title game
8) MSNBC ratings implosion
9) Simon leaving American Idol
10) American people who don’t believe in a ‘socialist paradise’.
Not only did he fail to respond timely to the oil rig disaster, Mr. Johnny-on-the-Spot even waited too long to blame Bush.
“George Bush makes Oboma look like the White House janitor.”
Why do you diss the White House janitor like that? He works much harder than 0bama, is probably a natural born citizen, is far, far better at cleaning up messes, and probably got where he is on merit.
I’d hire the White House janitor any day for just about any job over 0bama.
One of your finest. Amen, Amen, and again I say, Amen.
