So much for blaming the spill on Bush's lax policies
I've heard this talking point too... it's Bush's fault!
"The Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact analysis last year, according to government documents, after three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely.
The decision by the department's Minerals Management Service (MMS) to give BP's lease at Deepwater Horizon a "categorical exclusion" from the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on April 6, 2009 -- and BP's lobbying efforts just 11 days before the explosion to expand those exemptions -- show that neither federal regulators nor the company anticipated an accident of the scale of the one unfolding in the gulf."

Re: So much for blaming the spill on Bush's lax policies
This can descend into an Obama did it or Bush did it, but in reality BP did it.. and there is a need to hold them accountable..
As far as the fund raising tactic goes, it is not different than the ethics of the republicans who send out questionnaires with a return address of the "Census Department".. it is what it is political opportunity.. it sucks, but it is what it is.
