In the weeks immediately following the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform on April 20, 2010, Conservative pundits quickly tried to minimize the amount of damage we could expect from all that oil washing ashore, comparing it to "natural seepage" from the ocean floor. Then the oil started washing ashore, and suddenly this was "Obama's Katrina".

By the Conservative's own standards, this was a minor event from the very beginning, and yet they are is quick to criticize President Obama for not recognizing the pending disaster as soon as it happened and being "too slow to respond" (which is another lie I disprove in the video).

This took me all day to edit, so be kind in your comments. :)

13. the sad thing is it in no way effects his credibility
and he'll be back again and again no matter how wrong he is in his opinions. On TV "news" accuracy is not needed to be invited to give opinion. Amazing.

8. It scares me that there is a Rush Limbaugh in this world.
He is like a devil who's main purpose is to distort the truth. I really hope his comments of late will help to open some of his listeners' eyes and minds so that they may see him for what he actually is- an evil manipulator.

11. What we've come to understand is that right wingers in general are a
bunch of fricken morons, even the ones who are supposedly educated. They live in a fact free non-reality based bubble wedded to their ideology. What's worse, based on what I keep hearing with regard to future elections, Americans haven't seemed to figure that out.
