Katrina demolished New Orleans because of Levy failure. The Levy's are supposed to be maintained by a group of LOCALS in New Orleans called the Levy Board. They are HUGELY corrupt and did NOT maintain. The MAYOR of NO sent the people to a shelter IN NO. Please tell me what sense THAT makes. And the Governor of LA did NOT call on federal help until it was too late. ALSO the PEOPLE of NO KNOW that there is NO FOOD and NO WATER at a hurricane shelter. Somehow...despite ALL of that, the Katrina disaster was GWB's fault.
The Oil platforms in the gulf are regulated by.....the FEDERAL govt. BP was about to win a safety award from THIS administration. THIS problem is THEIR problem and they are doing nothing!
Can you please tell my why this admin is being given a free pass here? You want BP to pay?? ME TOO. But to think that THEY are going to worry about the gulf over their profit is insane!

I completely agree, OP.
The catastrophic result of bad decision making on behalf of the officials in charge in NO and LA should be owned and the responsibility of those individuals, not the federal government first.

Momof, the feds are supposed to inspect those drilling rigs monthly, and they skipped FOUR inspections in the last year. That is ONE THIRD of the inspections for a year! Maybe if they had been done, this catastrophe could have been prevented.
