It Didn't Take Long

In case you hadn't figured it out yet, the WV mine disaster? That was Bush's fault, too.

Political figures from both parties have long defended and profited from ties to the coal industry. Whether or not that was a factor in the Sago mine's history, the Bush administration's cramming of important posts in the Department of the Interior with biased operatives from the coal, oil and gas industry is not reassuring about general safety in the mines. Steven Griles, a mining lobbyist before being appointed deputy secretary of the interior, devoted four years to rolling back mine regulations and then went back to lobbying for the industry.

1 I guess you haven't drank the Democrat Kool-Aid (which might be why you're an ex-donkey). But if you had, you'd realize that EVERYTHING bad is Bush' fault. Hurricanes, explosions, traffic, the hole in the ozone layer, migraine headaches, genital warts, you name it, it's all Bush's fault.

2 As if you doubted it would come to this? Please, I'm surprsed Lindsey Lohan isn't blaming Bush for her bulimia and drug use.
