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.
Conservative pundits that initially believed the spill would turn out to be "no big deal" later (falsely) blamed President Obama for not reacting to the disaster sooner. And suddenly this was "Obama's Katrina".
