Did Republicans ever criticize Bush's Secretary
of the Interior, Gail Norton, who was in charge
when Deepwater Horizon blew its top or when 29
coal miners died in West Virginia all because of
the total lack of regulation enforcement?

Did the Agency get any criticism from the
Republicans when Gail Norton, Bush's Texas
crony, was in charge of the Interior Department
and Deepwater Horizon blew up killing 11
workers or when 29 miners were killed in West Virginia because of the complete lack of
regulation enforcement by the Interior Depart-
ment?

That's a rhetorical question. The answer is
no. The Republicans never let out a peep.
There were no investigations of Gail Norton.

Try getting your facts straight. Both of those events were on Øbama's watch, under Interior Secretary Salazar.

The Republicans did not get a chance to admonish President Bush for anything. The Democrats took care of that, and whined, and complained about everything. Now, with the dumbest President we ever had in office the Democrats see no evil, or hear no evil.

Doesn't matter who he picks. Like all of his picks for government posts, they will be attacked, smeared, lied about, filibustered, and held up by irresponsible, obstructionist Republicans whose ONLY interest is in hamstringing the Obama Administratino.
