Jimmy Buffet, Gulf Coast native and committed Obama supporter, blames Bush for oil spill

Jimmy Buffet is planning a benefit concert on the Alabama Gulf Coast to help raise the spirits of those who are living with the oil that is washing up on shore and destroying their economies and livelihoods. But evidently he's got the welfare of another on this mind. In an interview with the Associated Press, Mr. Buffet blames George W. Bush for the oil spill and not Barack Obama, who is actually the president:

Buffett, a supporter of President Barack Obama, said the roots of the spill lie with the administration of former President George Bush, which was often criticized for being too cozy with the petroleum industry.

"To me it was more about eight years of bad policy before (Obama) got there that let this happen. It was Dracula running the blood bank in terms of oil and leases," he said. "I think that has more to do with it than how the president reacted to it."

Earth to Parrothead, it was the Obama Administration that exempted BP from a thorough environmental review of its deep water drilling operations. From the Washington Post:

The Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact analysis last year, according to government documents, after three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely.

The decision by the department's Minerals Management Service (MMS) to give BP's lease at Deepwater Horizon a "categorical exclusion" from the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on April 6, 2009 -- and BP's lobbying efforts just 11 days before the explosion to expand those exemptions -- show that neither federal regulators nor the company anticipated an accident of the scale of the one unfolding in the gulf.

The folks living in the Gulf Coast are not stupid. They know full well who's responsible for this mess and are pushing back against Buffett's kool-aid induced diatribe:

But Buffett's attempt to cheer up Gulf Coast residents may have backfired. According to Alabama news website Al.com, the Margaritaville-singer's comments sparked anger among some readers who said Buffett should stick to music and stay out of partisan politics.

Al.com is a site owned by The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times and The Mobile Press-Register. In an article published by the site's staff titled, "What you're saying: Jimmy Buffett should leave out politics," the writers noted that Buffett's comments sent readers "into a frenzy of discussion over the singer-songwriter's political affiliations."

"When is this administration going to grow up and start taking responsibility for anything?" wrote one commenter cited in the article. "I hope the people of Alabama boycott his sister's restuarant in Gulf Shores. I will never eat there again."

"I have tickets for the concert and plan to attend. However, if Jimmy starts with the Bush bashing and Obama praising, I won't boo, but I will yell, "shut up and sing,'" wrote another.

What has the Gulf Coasters pissed isn't the spill itself, but Obama's non-reaction to the spill. If the president had actually been a caring, competent, and effective leader, he would have reacted quickly enough to get as many skimmers out onto the water to remove the oil before it reached the shores.

James H:

A relative of mine put it rather succinctly. It was President Bush's fault that the deepwater rigs weren't adequately regulated and that inspectors were apparently on the take. It's President Obama's fault that that situation didn't change in 2009 or 2010.

I had my sixth visit by Census workers yesterday and wrote about it on my blog.
I was told yesterday that the blame on the problems with the Census was because of none other than George W Bush.
Enough already!

as an afterthought I wonder if generations down the road will not pray to God, but to the all- powerful George W Bush who can manipulate weather, time, space, and even the US Census many times without a thought.

JLawson:

It won't end, Epador. There's no downside - the true believers aren't going to admit that anything Obama has done hasn't turned out perfectly. If something ISN'T working, then it's the fault of Bush, or a Bush appointee, or a piece of legistation Bush signed (even if it was pushed and promoted by Pelosi and Reid) or a contractor that was hired while Bush was in office (no matter the orientation of who hired them) or an organization that was in existance while Bush was President - even if there's no direct (or even indirect) connection.

And if they've got to do a 180 flip in their ideological thinking (see Loyal Lee, and his um... dislike of Obama before he got the DNC's nod) they'll do it in a heartbeat.

What we're seeing is the left putting into action all the things they screamed bloody murder about with the Bush administration. And they're not going to see a damn thing wrong with them as long as THEY are doing them.

The roots of the spill go back to the enviro-whackos and their liberal enablers.

As for the childish blame game by Buffet...
Typical liberal defense mechanism that they've perfected over the decades. They usually employ it to deflect criticism over their failed policies and programs. Now they have to use it to deflect attention from the incompetent in the White House.

Still, I'm a little curious as to what Buffet is talking about.

Really. What gulf oil leak?
Nothing in the MFM about it.
Nothing in my local Boston paper either.
Obama doesn't mention it.

1. In all that caltrap since this stated what new Regulations were proposed on deepwater rigs?
2. If a spill assessment had been done what would have been discovered?
a. We do not know because it was not done.
3. It turns out that BP was sending reports to the Administration that they were having issues with stability. Instead of sending people on site it was ignored.
4. Knowing that DPH was having issues they allowed DPH to deviate from the standard process.
We know from modern history it take a long time to plug a well.

JLawson:

Does this make sense to you?"
It does to me. The thing is, he didn't see it as a 'deficiency' until it blew up in his face. Before that, the oil industry was a profit center for his campaign funds.

And now? It's a friggin' GOLD mine - extort money from the oil companies to continue drilling, constantly threaten to shut 'em down to appease his environmentalist supporters, stall the remediation efforts to make things even worse so he'll have more legislative power later - he's playing it for all he's worth.

And the folks on the left will blame Bush, because they literally can't blame Obama.

Personally? He needs to STFU about his politics and sing. I will not be funding his endeavors on Casino beach or buying into his Parrot head lifestyle.

James H: Do you really think before you post?

1. How long have they been drilling in the Gulf?
2. How far back do you want to shift the blame?

The current regime, the (P)resident specifically, has been closely associated to BP with campaign funds and ecological endeavors they have proposed. They SPECIFICALLY gave that rig an award for good performance. To say that it's Bush's fault for not enacting stricter regulation is hind sight and an assinine comment. The oil is in the water, its still flowing. The (P)resident is doing everything in his power to limit what can be done to stop it either by inaction on his part or deliberate regulatory intrusion or outright ignoring obvious mitigating measures.

To blame Bush for the inaction and deliberate interference by this regime is trying to shift the responsibility from the person MOST responsible for solving the problem NOW.

He's a pop entertainer and an intellectual midget. If his comment was about music, it would have carried more weight. Unfortunately for him, he comments on issues he (apparently) knows nothing about.

I say Unfortunately, because in this country, some people mistake popularity in one narrow area with competence in totally unrelated areas, then they (ab)use their "stage" in life to preach that which they know nothing of.

There are politicans from both political parties whose actions contributed to the crisis. Presidents do have the power to implement policies that can last for decades after they leave office. Therefore, a presidents accountability does not end when they leave office.

Bush is NOT the current president.

The current (P)resident is responsible if ACTION is going to be taken to stop and resolve the problem.

You cannot assign blame for this to Bush because it was an unforeseen possibility to him and he no longer has the ability to do something about it.

OBAMA is the sole person in charge and he's sitting around with his thumb up his ass watching the economy of 4 states go straight to hell because of his inability to formulate and enact a plan to stop the problem and clean up the oil.

Ccome to grips with reality and stop trying to blame anyone other that the person directly responsible for what is currently happening, you to Tina. By your logic I can pin ALL of this on Clinton.

JLawson,

It's a real travisty that undersea drilling has been going on for 50 years and nobody has come up with a fool proof way to stop a blowout or effective technique to clean a spill. Both the oil industry and the government is to blame and that's 50 years of blame spanning both parties.

Tina -It's been my... (Below threshold)
JLawson:

Tina -

It's been my experience that when you make something 'foolproof', all you're doing is asking Murphy to prove you wrong. And there does come a point of diminishing returns, where you can design a system to take 150% of expected stresses for $XX, but to make it take 300% costs exponentially more.

From what I've read (again) the steel piping alone should be able to take something on the order of 30,000 PSI. Your standard high-pressure oxygen tank in a welding rig is charged at about 3,000 PSI, for comparision.

To thicken the piping so it would take a 60,000 PSI... I don't even want to think about what that'd cost, or how thick the pipe would be. I think we're pushing at the limits with current technology of what we can do with drilling - but I ain't an expert on the subject by any means. I AM amazed at what we CAN do, however.

But again, we wouldn't have to be drilling so far offshore and so deep if we could drill on land, or drill in the shallows.

I find it horribly ironic that the disaster that the environmentalists feared would happen occurred as a result of their political maneuvering to keep oil companies from drilling on the land or in shallow waters near the shore. A blowout like this would have probably taken about a week to correct on land, and the containment would have been MUCH easier.

JLawson, I'm ... (Below threshold)
Tina S:

JLawson,

I'm not talking about making the equiptment foolproof. We do need a technique that would be virtually foolproof in stopping a free fowing leak in an underwater pipe. I refuse to believe that we are uncapable of figuring this out. I don't see why it would take more than a few years to come up with.

hcddbz:

The sad part is do we know what caused the spill?
We do know that the current administration failed to follow prescribed procedures.

1. 1996 Plan to deploy ships in the event of spill was ignored.
2. They waived procedures on looking at potential spill and how to temporally abandoned the well.
3.They refused to allow clean up efforts to begin
4. They stopped states in their efforts to limit damage.
5. When wells did leak under Bush Administration they were controlled.
The problem was that the administration response was not to
1) limit damage
2) Control the spill
It was to make as much money and assign blame.
Why else do you dispatch lawyers , yet refuse the aid of countries in containment of the spill?

This is why this is BHO fault. Not Bush, Not Clinton not Carter, Reagan or any other man who has sit in the office.
Bush had given the permit to BP then you might have had a point but this all occurred on BHO watch, with a company that has been lock step in implementing polices that BHO likes.

If we are going to go down that route... Then why didn't Buffet blame his buddy Obama as well?! Obama took thousands of dollars from BP, Obama did not allow those foreign ships to help us clean up the oil until 71 days later which the oil hit our shores! Obama gave orders to not allow People in Louisiana to put up sand walls to prevent oil to go on the beaches, Obama gave orders to not allow the locals to use there boats to help out!But no mention of that right?

Wow! I never considered Mr.... (Below threshold)

Wow! I never considered Mr. Buffett to be a target as such.. I mean honestly, who cares who people want to blame? I am more up for talking about what is getting done about this mess. Placing blame will not get the oil off the beaches, I am proud to say, I am a fan. This artist has survived the winds of change that very few have..His life at one time was a mess, but he cleaned up his act, he has a loving relationship with his wife and enjoys his family life. It gives me great pain to read the words that people are using in this room of heartless people. This man has put forth a huge amount of effort, and time to help create funds to help clean up this mess.
So, you do not agree with what he said, big deal, get over it and focus on the trouble that is at hand. The oil companies are not going to clean up this mess, they are going to sweep every thing they can under the rocks and hope to get us fooled in to believing that the job has been completed. It is going to take real people who truly care to make sure that this job gets done right. It is going to cost us money via donations and volunteers to clean up this mess.. Jimmy Buffett and many of his fans are going to be a large part of those people. So, before we go throwing a rope over a branch, or in Buffett's case, send one of our best supporters out on the plank, just remember, there is still so much that has to be done..So he is a little emotional, he is an artist, he loves his home, but remember, we all make mistakes, we are all human, and I am glad to know that he is going to be there till the coast is clear...
