Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., blamed the Bush administration for any lack of oversight leading up to the Gulf oil spill. The Obama administration, on the other hand, is blameless.
From Talk Radio News Service:
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.
Added the Speaker, the cozy relationships between the Bush administrations agency leadership and the industry is clear Ive heard no complaints from my members about the way the president has handled it, Pelosi stated.
On Friday, the Washington Examiner requested that Speaker Pelosis office release the list of Bush appointees to whom she was referring. Well let you know when we hear back.
Pelosi is an Idiot.
duh... nothing new here!
“Pelosi is an Idiot.”
I believe you just offended idiots everywhere...
uh duh...my union ups driver
said “it’s bush’s fault”.
Pelosi is a Marxist, and an Enemy of the Republic.
>> Pelosi blames Bush administration for BP oil spill.
That’s a stretch.
It ‘s always Bush’s fault.
You forgot Cheney and Haliburton.
A pattern of bad outcomes is a regulatory and oversight issue. A single disaster is the result of an isolated act or omission. Someone didn’t follow the rules set down for safe operation because they thought they could cut corners.
Sounds like the Democrat’s Bush tourettes is in full flare up.
Nope. Nothing new...BUSH’S FAULT...
I hope they keep riding that horse...EVERYBODY is sick of it and if such a thing is possible, it is making them look more cluelss with everyday that passes...I hope for many, many more of these stories.
Pelosi or her statement?ROTF!
“Thats a stretch.”
Yep. Hope they keep it up...
Next it wil be Reagans Fault.
Its PELOSI’S FAULT!!! Her House has FAILED to regulate the industry properly, and FAILED to END corruption between congress and the industry regulators and the companies. SHE HAS BEEN IN CHARGE SINCE 2006!!!!!!!! What has HER PARTY DONE??? Profit. What will the Gulf do? The same thing the housing marked did. DIE.
Big Oil isn’t bad. Its the graft going on between those at the top of the ladder, Pelosi and the CEO’s and upper Regulatory officials. PELOSI AND HER PARTY HAVE FAILED AMERICA!! Yea you BET I am blaming government, and the Democrats who have been running it since 2006!!!!!!
RETIRE THEM IMMEDIATELY. Nov. cannot come soon enough.
Heh heh...his finger in a dyke....that’s funny. DADT.
Breath holding could be lethal so don't do it.
Remember, she’s the same ___hole that certified Odumbo as a legitimate, qualified Pres__dent. He still is in her eyes.
San Fran Nan has just confirmed she’s insane. This idiot has got to go.
One of these days, Pelousy will blame Pres. Bush for her bad face lifts and Hillary’s bad hair. She is a joke.
He should have served in Vietnam.
And who did British Petroleum give a million dollars to during the last presidential election?
Why didn't Obama "ferret out" these "burrowed in" Bush people if they are so bad?
Now if you want to see "burrowed in" people from previous Administrations, see the State Department...
Oh Nancy, now the world knows you’re an idiot. Bush isn’t president, the well was drilled all during Obama’s presidency, and Obama just took full responsibility. This woman is clearly not capable of holding a political office. I think the botox has effected her brain in a way that she is on longer safe to be driving or making any kind of decisions. Lack of oversight? Is that why the Democrat chosen MMS director, Liz Birnbaum, was just fired? You are the dumbest legislator in Washington DC. I’m embarrassed that you are 3rd in line for the presidency. If Obama and Biden die in office, the military should arrest you before this country makes the worst mistake ever.
Does Tim Kaine know this?
Nancy would do the US and the world a favor if she put a gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger
“”Many of the people appointed in the Bush administration are still burrowed in the agencies “”
Someone on FOX reported that those are Civil Service Employees in the MMS not political appointees - perhaps the only one not is the the one who resigned - who got fired - multiple choice!
Now that that’s settled - let’s talk about the State Department employees who are still burrowed in from the Clinton Administration - the cesspool of the swamp that’s DC.
“”Now if you want to see “burrowed in” people from previous Administrations, see the State Department... “”
Sorry - didn’t see your comment before I piped up but we’re on the same page at least!
and until the cowards in today’s GOP ends the fear of standing up for GWB and not call out brain dead liberals like pelosi who are trying to cover up their incompetence with idiot excuses like these, they are even bigger morons....
Pelosi is a joke, but she is not funny.
With regard to the wellhead . . .
I wonder if it could be arranged . . . as a consequence of and punishment for her treason
for her to be forced to
SIT ON IT.
this just in “breaking news” top kill worked ....... on Pelosi head. Yup brain dead but the mouth is still running ..... “Bush’s fault .... Bush’s fault ..... Bush’s fault .....”
Pelosi is a robot. How else can she repeat the same thing endlessly in every situation without feeling?
