This was Bush showing himself to be part of the problem. You have not a single thing like that here.

    Yeah? How many tar balls are washing up on the gulf coast shores today, while Obama continues to say nothing to look at here? Instead he strangles off the oil industry, and outsources it to Brazil for his buddy Soros.....Obama is a cheap little crook that can't get the hell out fast enough.

    Seems to me he was involved. He acted. Bush, not so much.

    But, keep trying. Like I said, I've never seen the Buck stop at Bush's desk. Ever.

    Yeah, he acted all right.....

    The government recently used red tape to force Louisiana to stop using 16 barges that were cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico by sucking thousands of gallons of oil out of Louisiana's oil-soaked waters.

    Earlier, Obama delayed the clean-up of the Gulf of Mexico by months, by blocking foreign crews from operating sophisticated clean-up vessels. The Jones Act bans foreign vessels and crews from working in U.S. waters, but it gives the President the authority to completely waive that ban if he wishes. Obama refused to lift the ban, even though American shippers who generally support the ban said they wouldn't object to lifting it to fight the spill. The U.S. has refused a lot of foreign aid from counties with expertise in fighting oil spills, and accepted only a small amount of foreign equipment to fight the spill.

    Bravo...Now that is action that we all wanted....

    I didn't bring Bush up. Perhaps you should direct this at j.

    Yes I do, if your meaning crud floating around in the gulf waters, it supports his failed green agenda. He also wants gas prices to go higher for the exact same reason.

    That's laughable. Please provide some support.
