No one is saying that BP isn't a responsible party for this disaster. It is only the repeated use of them as a bludgeoning tool to deflect the administrations piss poor track record in this that grows tiresome.
Look, BP did intentionally unleash this disaster, any more than Obama blew it himself, so that is over the top. Second, Obama's refusal to act swiftly, and bring to bear any and all resources to battle this spill, then at the same time callously use it as a political tool to try and ram cap and trade through, is despicable. And in some cases maybe even criminal. Too bad there won't be any serious investigation of this until he is long disgraced out of office.
