Could any of this be a result of the "drill baby drill" mentality?
And isn't this event precisely the reason Democrats have opposed drilling up until now?
And nuclear reactors for the same reason?
Did people really think Democrats just don't like POWER or cheap energy or to see the nation run smoothly and cheaply? They only want to try other
ways that are less dangerous.
People were afraid of something like this happening.
The benefits are not worth the risk involved.
She may also be referring to the "blow out preventor" which I understand Cheney and Halliburton decided were to expensive to be practical for use
here in the US during the Bush administration.
Meanwhile other countries have laws requiring 2 blowout preventors on their rigs. You can see where our priorities were at that time. It is all about
the money. Screw the planet.
No. You can't blame Democrats for this one. This is not our MO.
But, we will die just the same as our Republican friends who regularly pushed for this agenda and on our way out of the burning dying planet we will
get to say "I told you so"
And republicans will still be blaming Obama somehow and life will go on somewhere else.
