In that speech he condemned the government for having people in toxic water 5 days after the tragedy. It just seems like an Inconvienant Truth that the worst environmental disaster in our nation's history happened under his party's watch, so he stays quiet.
Possibly, but he's also going through a divorce right now, isn't he? Probably isn't thinking about the oil spill all that much.
I have no idea. But, then again, I didn't sign up to be the leader of the free world. And what could Bush have done about Katrina? Could he have stopped a hurricane? Could he have made people get out of there? People didn't heed the warnings and then blamed him.
Once again, being the President doesn't give you magic oil-well-capping powers. If the technology doesn't work, the technology doesn't work. If there is a lack of money, or manpower, or something the government can actually provide, then criticism may be justified.
Why are people blaming "Bush guys" for this? If the Bush guys were so bad, why didn't Obama fire them before this happened? Why didn't it happen on Bush's watch?
Blaming George Bush at this time does indeed sound petty, we agree here.
