Right is spinning out of control over oil leak
Republicans have been spinning out of control trying to blame the explosion of the giant BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and the resulting oil spill on President Obama.
Shortly after the explosion on April 20, Drug addled gas bag Rush Limbaugh said the President was rushing in to play the hero. Shortly after that, he and other conservatives were saying he had not done enough, and it was his Hurricane Katrina.
Limbaugh even said there is no need to do a clean up of some 4 million gallons of oil There is no tragedy that Limbaugh will not use to bash Democrats. But, this is not about the drug addled one.
Discredited Right-wing tools from Sean Hannnity to Karl Rove have been spinning hard to try and sell it as President Obama’s Katrina, despite the fact that the Obama Administration was there from day one. Apparently, this will now be Hanity’s version of “where were the buses.”
I hate to go back to the drug addled gas bag, but he and others are even trying to push the myth that it was the work of environmentalists who sabotaged it to make their point that off-shore drilling is unsafe.
Stay tuned because the spin from the right is far from over.
