More evidence that this oil gusher is Bush and Cheney's fondest wish (drill, baby, drill) come back to bite them on the ass. Of course, to the 29% of Americans who aren't sure if the President is an American, this won't matter one bit. The earth is 6000 years old, we did not evolve, we faked the moon landing, global warming is a hoax, Iraq had WMD, and the oil spill is Obama's fault...in reference to:
"The Bush administration agency charged with assessing the impact of new deepwater drilling on endangered species in the Gulf of Mexico based its 2007 conclusion that expanded drilling was "not likely" to "destroy or adversely modify designated critical habitat" on a worst-case scenario that a single spill would dump no more than 630,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf."
