Oh Oh For Obama: BP Disaster Was HIS Project. No Blaming Bush This Time!!!

Bob McCarty had a rather stunning surprise regarding the fiery explosion that is now building into the largest ecological disaster in American history.  It turns out it was all approved by Barry Hussein:

Drilling Plan for Doomed Rig Approved By Obama
April 30th, 2010 · No Comments

Dan Riehl brought to light an interesting piece of trivia related to the offshore drilling rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.  It appears the blame for this event, one of history’s worst environmental disasters, can’t be shuffled off to President George W. Bush.

Here are the facts that demonstrate just whose project this disaster was:

The Macondo prospect is situated on Mississippi Canyon block 252 (MC 252), offshore Louisiana, Gulf of Mexico, USA, and is owned and operated by British Petroleum (BP).

The initial exploration plan for the project was submitted by BP to Minerals Management Services (MMS) in March 2009. The plan included drilling and temporary abandonment of two exploration wells over the prospect. The operator took control over the prospect through the Lease Sale #206 by MMS in March 2008.

Deepwater Horizon explosion

Drilling over the prospect was initially planned to be carried out by Transocean’s Marianas rig, but later changed to Deepwater Horizon. Deepwater Horizon caught fire when it was drilling at Macondo in April 2010. The rig sank into water after the accident and is currently lying over the sea floor, around 1,500ft northwest of the well centre and away from subsea pipelines.

Returning to Bob McCarty:

That’s right!  It seems the initial exploration plan for the British Petroleum-owned Macondo prospect was, according to the folks at OffshoreTechnology.com, approved by the folks at the Minerals Management Service in March 2009.  MMS falls under the supervision of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and, by working your way up the federal food chain, the approval authority lands squarely on the desk of President Barack Obama.

Dan writes: Obama said his administration was going to do something with the oceans, as I recall. I didn’t think he meant destroy them. heh!  Read the rest of his fine piece by clicking here or on the graphic above.

Ah, yes, that most arrogant boast ever spoken by the mouth of man:

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”

Is Obama looking up and saying, “I said ‘When the rise of the oceans began to slow,’ not burn up in a huge oil slick!”

There’s some truly great mockery of “the man who must not be laughed at.”  But nowhere near enough.  What we’re seeing is that this is the moment when we began to provide death panels for the sick and expiring unemployment benefits to the long-term unemployed; this was the moment when the oceans began to burn and smell like kerosene and our planet began to seriously turn to crap.

The Democrats are looking for someone to blame, because demagoguery is all they’re good at.  But let’s not forget: the president who approved of this ecological disaster in the making is no other than Barry Hussein.

  1. Aaron Says:

    … this is absurd. The expanded oil drilling in the Macondo Prospect was a Bush agenda. Obama came into office in Feburary 2009, BP ACQUIRED the area in March 2009 by SECURING the approval, which was already underway and was a project involving explorative surveys stemming from LEGISTLATION PASSED IN 2007.

    I’m not going to do any research for you, you clearly don’t care you just want to play the Blame game. Utilizing round-about quotes and snippets of facts to support your own desires is a childish game. Even worse, every single quote you use, PERIOD, comes from the WIKIPEDIA entry which is nothing but a summation. TRY TO AT LEAST READ THE REFERENCE ARTICLES IF YOU’RE GOING TO BASE YOUR WORLD AROUND AN OPEN ENCYCLOPEDIA.

    Oh, and grow the hell up. No one cares. BP messed up and now they’re playing run-around. No one is interested in blaming any particular Administration besides the few childish goons like yourself.

    There is a perfectly good reason that none of the Reporters or News Channels you follow (FOX) are supporting claims like yours. 1) You’re wrong. 2) It is of no value. 3) It’s trivializing a tradgey.

    Fool. Spend your time on something more worthy.

  2. Aaron Says:

    here’s some info that’ll push you in the right direction of the history regarded expanded offshore drilling; http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/14/washington/14drillcnd.html

    It doesn’t stop with the end of the Moratorum in 2008 though, do your own further research regarding the gulf of mexico. Further areas, not a part of the Moratorium were expanded in 2007-2008.

  3. Michael Eden Says:

    Aaron,
    I’m not really sure what point you were trying to make with the article.

    Let me be quite clear on one of MY points, however.

    Why are we drilling in mile-deep water? Because that’s what liberals have forced oil companies to do. Why are we having the worst disaster in American history? Because we’re drilling in mile-deep water. Ergo, who is to blame for this disaster? The Democrats who created a disaster by forcing oil companies to drill in mile-deep water when they should have been drilling on the coastal shelf where an accident could be quickly and easily dealt with.

    Many liberals are decrying the disaster as proof that we should not drill. Apart from the fact that if they argue that, they should be denied any form of transportation or any product that uses oil for life (they should willingly accept this boycott and go live in caves until they die out, in fact), there’s another issue.

    This disaster was due to drilling in water that is so deep and at a depth that has so much pressure, that an accident was bound to happen. And that accident was bound to be a major disaster.

    We need oil. That is a fact. Even if you take the damn bus, we need oil.

    So from now on, let’s drill for oil at the closest locations to shore, and at the shallowest depths we can drill.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Bullcrap. You are a liar. You aren’t going to do my research for me because you’re full of lies and have nothing.

    I repeat the quote from offshore-technology.com, a professional technical publication in the most relevant field, which couldn’t be any more nonpartisan:

    The Macondo prospect is situated on Mississippi Canyon block 252 (MC 252), offshore Louisiana, Gulf of Mexico, USA, and is owned and operated by British Petroleum (BP).

    The initial exploration plan for the project was submitted by BP to Minerals Management Services (MMS) in March 2009. The plan included drilling and temporary abandonment of two exploration wells over the prospect. The operator took control over the prospect through the Lease Sale #206 by MMS in March 2008.

    The plan didn’t even get submitted until Bush was OUT OF OFFICE.

    Also, that wasn’t from Wikipedia, WAS IT, you liar without shame or integrity???

    As I have also documented, it got submitted a) to Barack Obama, who, although only having been a national politician for little over two years, had received more money from British Petroleum than any politician over an entire 20-year period; b) that same Obama who took all that money approved the plan, not Bush; c) that same Obama who took all that money issued an environmental waiver to BP only 11 days before the explosion; and d) that same Obama who took all the money has done nothing while the event turned into a total disaster.

    Even James Carville, lifelong Democrat professional fact-spinner, says Obama has completely failed on every level over this disaster:

    JAMES CARVILLE: Man, I hope so, George. Because, the political stupidity is unbelievable. Here, you have a situation, where you have some working- 11 working- hard-working people, blown up as the result of corporate malfeasance and maybe criminal negligence, as a result of inept bureaucrats who were part of the- you can actually blame the previous administration for this. And the President doesn’t get down here in the middle of this. This thing should be- his approval should be up seven points right now if he had come down. I have no idea of why they didn’t seize this thing. I have no idea of why their attitude was so hands-off-y here. It’s just unbelievable. Now, I hope he sees it now, because very seldom do you get good politics and the really the right thing to do. And that is to get involved here.

    STEPHANOPOULOS: But, let me ask both of you this: What more can the President do here? He didn’t-

    CARVILLE: George! George! George! The President of the United States could have come down here. He could have been involved with the families of these 11 people. He could have commandeered the things. We could have sent the Woods Hole people. He could have sent the Scripps on research vessels in the Gulf of Mexico. He could have implemented a plan in anticipation of this. You know, right, he can’t exactly fill the hole up. Last night I was on Larry King, the CEO, the former CEO of the Shell. They said they got 85 percent of the stuff cleaned up in the Gulf of Saudi Arabia. He could be commandeering tankers and making BP bring tankers in and clean this up. They could the deploying people to the coast right now. He could be deploying people to the coast. He could be with the corps of engineers and the Coast Guard with these people in Plaquemines Parish, doing something about these regulations. These people are crying. They’re begging for something down here. And it just looks like he’s not involved in this! Man, you have got to get down here and take control of this! Put somebody in charge of this and get this thing moving! We’re about to die down here!

    Is it your fool contention that James Carville, lifelong Democrat, lifelong political spinmeister, has these views because he only watches Fox News, you dumbass?

    Now, let me explain to everyone why I’m blocking Aaron. He insinuates that he has facts on his side without bothering to actually produce any when he doesn’t; and then he insinuates that somehow my facts are bogus without bothering to produce any facts to disqualify or disprove them.

    You smarmy dirtbag, with your “I’m not going to do any research for you” garbage. If you’re not going to actually argue facts, you don’t belong here. Go to your liberal sites, where facts don’t matter.

    I’m not going to have that kind of demagogue on my blog.

    I have to end by mocking you as a complete idiot, Aaron. Grow the hell up because nobody cares? First of all, you bogus hypocrite, that sure wasn’t what your filthy ilk was saying when you were damning Bush up one side and down the other over his failure to deal with the Katrina disaster. It’s amazing what pure, distilled hypocrites you fools truly are. And second, have you looked at the freaking polls lately? Obama is down to 42% approval. Clearly, people care. And the only people who DON’T care are far leftist rabid ideologues such as yourself who wouldn’t care WHAT stupidity your fool of a liberal messiah made.

    In conclusion, I just spent my time on something worthy. I blocked you so I’ll never have to deal with your fact-free garbage again.

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    Thought I’d issue another finding that Aaron is just wrong – and deceitful – in what he’s saying.

    He sneers:

    Oh, and grow the hell up. No one cares. BP messed up and now they’re playing run-around. No one is interested in blaming any particular Administration besides the few childish goons like yourself.

    Well, bullcrap. That’s simply not true.

    From the Associated Press:

    Public opinion turning against Obama on oil spill
    Wed May 26, 4:11 pm ET

    The American public is losing its patience with President Obama over his handling of the Gulf Coast oil spill.

    In the five weeks since an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig sent hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico, Obama had largely escaped political fallout. But as BP attempts yet again to seal the leak, a new USA Today/Gallup Poll finds a majority of Americans unhappy with Obama’s handling of the spill. According to the poll, 53 percent rate Obama’s handling “poor” or “very poor”; 43 percent believe Obama is doing a good job.

    In other words, according to Aaron, fully 53% of Americans are “childish goons,” whereas a mere 43% are enlightened intellectuals like Aaron.

    If BP’s ‘top kill’ plan works, the blame will likely die down. If it fails, the American people will increasingly become “childish goons” – even more than the clear majority that already ARE “childish goons.”

    Looks like the conservatives pretty much failed

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    I’m not quite sure what conservatives “failed” at according to your contention, Aaron.

    Do you mean they failed to pierce the mainstream media veil to document the fact that Barry Hussein – who has only been in national politics for three years – took more money from BP than ANYBODY over two entire decades???

    Obama biggest recipient of BP cash
    Wed May 5, 2010 5:15pm EDT

    POLITICO (Washington) – While the BP oil geyser pumps millions of gallons of petroleum into the Gulf of Mexico, President Barack Obama and members of Congress may have to answer for the millions in campaign contributions they’ve taken from the oil and gas giant over the years.

    BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees – $2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

    On top of that, the oil giant has spent millions each year on lobbying — including $15.9 million last year alone — as it has tried to influence energy policy.

    During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.

    You’re right. Conservatives failed to pierce the mainstream media propaganda machine to tell the American people that their president is a total slimeball.
