The Spill Is Obama's Fault (ish*)

Who picked the current heads of the Minerals Management Service and the Environmental Protection Agency? Who (if he were a 'the buck stops here' real-life Leader) would accept responsibility for the actions of his appointees?

And whose appointees' agencies allowed drilling to continue on the Deepwater Horizon rig working for BP under circumstances so bad that another company with similar well control problems reportedly stopped drilling on a well in 2006?

In other words, whose people should have seen this coming and prevented it?

Your boy.

*kind of. An investigation needs to be done before we start assigning blame and handing out privately-earned money from $20B escrow accounts.
