    I see this guided towards Obama and the scrutiny of everything he does. 20 billion dollars aside, I have a question for you all....


    How long did it take Bush 1 to respond to the exxon Valdez disaster? Did he ever even address it let alone get the victims money?

    Seriously, right leaning people, can anyone one of you answer me this, did he do ANYTHING about the Valdez?
    Yes, I know that was a while ago, but I am just reminded time and time again how bad Obama handled this, but Bush 1 did nothing.

    Valdez = Bush 1 = He did nothing and no scrutiny from any right wingers.
    Gulf = Obama = 20 billion dollars for victims and scrutiny on EVERY aspect of everything he does.

    Why the difference? I know he said he would continue deep drilling after the valdez, but that is just one of the problems we are dealing with now. :eusa_whistle:

    Stay on point please. This thread is about response time from Bush 1 and why there was NO back lash for it. I found ONE thing he said after the Valdez and all he said was he will continue drilling and looking for energy. Never about the Valdez directly really.

    STAY ON POINT PLEASE.

    That might explain why he didn't do anything.

    You know, I'm kinda wondering the same thing myself now.

    BTW...........most of this outrage against Obama playing golf is a tiny reflection of the outrage against Tony Hayward for going sailing in the clean waters off the Isle of Wight.

    They saw the anger against Hayward for doing something recreational and immediately looked at Obama for something similar, which is why they focused on his golf game on Fathers Day.

    However.............Obama was playing in an American golf course, as well as still able to receive updates at all times.

    Hayward wasn't even close to being kept informed while he was on his boat.

    At least Obama was still here in America.

    I'm not sure what legislation passed, but it looks like his administration had a part in Obama being able to leverage BP for compensation.

    Obama was too busy playing golf to worry about the gulf.

    4 trips to the area would beg to differ.

    And........if that bullshit statement was true, the game would have made Guinness' book of records for a 60 day game.

    Wasn't the 'exxon valdez' incident the responsibility of the transportation company? Like a train engineer or truck driver wrecking a load of hazardous cargo (not a direct result of the oil company)?
