The Oil Disaster that wasn't...

Could it be that Americans overhyped the spill and its aftermath?

Tsk tsk!

There was one American public figure who, early on, declared that the harm from the oil was over-hyped. He pointed out that oil comes out of the ocean floor every day, and natural processes handle it.

His name? Rush Limbaugh.

I do think that Obama rather played to the crowd rather than showing leadership in this matter. Mind you, that's what British politicians do all the time these days.
