$89,000 in campaign contributions, more than to any other candidate, will buy plenty of favors....

Hmmm, now what happened January 2009?
And just how much money did President Obie receive from the major beneficiary of this "bureaucratic snafu"?

It was rumored from the start of this spill that George Soros is a major investor in the company that owns the Deepwater Horizon.

Has anyone confirmed this?

The comments after the NYT article are another fine indication that BDS is alive and well!

I guess most of the readers didn't make it down to the 6th paragraph of the article where it states, " ... but the minerals agency since January 2009 has approved at least three huge lease sales, 103 seismic blasting projects and 346 drilling plans."

The federal Minerals Management Service gave permission to BP and dozens of other oil companies to drill in the Gulf of Mexico without first getting required permits from another agency that assesses threats to endangered species...

What difference would it make to get yet another permit from yet another agency?

There was a failure in the mudding process apparently. No one makes that kind of mistake on purpose, and its not the kind of thing another permit with another few reams of paper would have stopped.

...and despite strong warnings from that agency about the impact the drilling was likely to have on the gulf.

You have to make a decision. Do you want to be energy independent, or not. Of the hundreds of billions we pay for fuel, do you want to pay that money into American pockets putting American workers to work, or do you want it to put some other nation's workers to work. Do you want to fund your own national treasury or someone else's.

The country that is willing to deal with the risks and hazards of oil production is the country that is going to get the big bucks. Countries that refuse get to wallow in their bankruptcy and unemployment and watch the dollar sink into the deep waters.

Q:

Why is the phrase “on your watch” not being thrown into every story?

Everything that happened from 2000-2008...the phrase “on Bush’s watch” was layered thick. Even tacit acknowledgements, “Well, perhaps prior administrations might bare some responsibility, but this happened on President Bush’s watch”.

Conservatives have to start using some of the in-your-face tactics of the left. They will crumble at that type of challenge.

On Page 2 of article:

[After the disaster, Mr. Salazar said he would delay granting any new oil drilling permits. . .the minerals agency has issued at least five final approval permits to new drilling projects in the gulf since last week. . .Despite being shown records indicating otherwise, Ms. Barkoff said her agency had granted no new permits since Mr. Salazar made his announcement.]
