This is already making its way all over the blogosphere, below is the video.  It’s worth noting that this guy is the ranking Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee.  If the GOP wins back the House, he’ll be responsible for regulating the oil industry.


Statement from the Whitehouse: “What is shameful is that Joe Barton seems to have more concern for big corporations that caused this disaster than the fishermen, small business owners and communities whose lives have been devastated by the destruction. Congressman Barton may think that a fund to compensate these Americans is a ‘tragedy’, but most Americans know that the real tragedy is what the men and women of the Gulf Coast are going through right now. Members from both parties should repudiate his comments.”
