Gulf Oil Spill and Blame

Our friend J.Marquis recently wrote:

"When I hear conservatives say they want to "stop regulations on EVERYTHING we do" it makes me stop and think about the terrible tragedy currently taking place in the Gulf
of Mexico.

Even if for some strange reason you hate the wildlife and scenery down there you should at least sympathize with the plight of the small business people this human-caused catastrophe is wiping out.

Can you imagine how much worse things would be if oil companies didn't have to worry about ANY government regulations?"

So...they can't blame George Bush anymore and now this is what...blaming the TEA PARTIES?

See, ,now when I heard about the ensuing tragedy down in the Gulf (they're saying the oil could reach the Outer Banks, NC?!) I couldn't help but think about what J. Marquis and his friends would have been saying if:

This happened on President Bush's watch...when one of his biggest opponents was going around the country saying "Drill Baby Drill"...and he was trying to get sweeping environmental legislation passed...
