    Ooops. I guess all those huge political contributions BP and their employees gave to Obama persuaded him to look the other way.

    Obama is in with Big Oil!

    Did you know Halliburton had big contracts involved too?

    Obama must be in bed with Haliburton too!

    why feel sorry for them? did you even read the full article?

    it was the BUSH ADMINistration that reviewed their safety standards 3 times in 2007...and BP has lied about the risks?

    From the OP linked article.

    "The MMS mandates that companies drilling in some areas identify under NEPA what could reduce a project's environmental impact. But Interior Department spokesman Matt Lee-Ashley said the service grants between 250 and 400 waivers a year for Gulf of Mexico projects. He added that Interior has now established the "first ever" board to examine safety procedures for offshore drilling. It will report back within 30 days on BP's oil spill and will conduct "a broader review of safety issues," Lee-Ashley said. "

    MMS is for sure in bed with big oil and had been for years.

    Awww Care you just took the fun out of their spin.

    We all know that Obama was supposed to have changed/fixed everything in a year or so.

    So they listened to BP's advice that they are safe enough? Fox telling the farmer he will guard his chickens? Bullshit and you know it. They exempted them.
