SocraticGadfly: Polishing Bush's BP apple

Polishing Bush's BP apple

At first, I read this NYT column noting that Congress had a share of blame for the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and definitely agreed. Then, I got to the part where "the environmentalists" were blamed, and though I agree that Gang Green groups have made some pig-in-a-poke tradeoffs with Big Oil, I knew the author was stretching things.

Then, I noticed George W. Bush got nothing but kudos for trying to stop Congress, the GOP in Congress no less, from buttering up Big Oil. I also noticed that the Obama Administration also did NOT get blamed.

Then, I looked at the endline of the column and realized it was Executive Branch common oourtesy.
