    So why aren't we burning any of this stuff off? What has he done?

    they have been trying to turn this into a joint responsbility, and it's clearly not.
    Have we determined what, or who, caused this explosion?

    but i am willing to read how you have determined that he is an Obama adherent, as he is rubbing his hands together over this

    ready, set, post
    I know what you wrote; I was just making an observation that this is convenient to Obama's environmental "cap and trade" ideology, that's all.

    What caused this explosion? What is accidental, or intentional? Why aren't we burning it off? Why did we send a SWAT team?

    And regarding New Orleans, when grown adults don't heed the warnings and leave before the hurricane hits, especially in a disaster-waiting-to-happen like New Orleans, I don't harbor much sympathy. I hate what they went through, but it was self-induced.

    He's left it in the hands of the experts. I believe they are working hard to do what they can. He is putting pressure on the foreign company that we allowed to drill in our territorial waters. He's put a moratorium on new drilling for now.

    What do you expect, for him to wave his magic wand?

    From what I understand, and maybe I am wrong, BP is responsible for the entire cleanup no matter what part or parts caused the accident and what company they were made by. Is that right or did I misunderstand that somewhere along the way?

    In other words, he essentially done nothing, yet he's being praised by some for it.

    I don't blame him a bit, just like I didn't blame Bush for Katrina.

    Correct. Bush wasn't to blame for the disorder after Katrina. The president doesn't control everything. He does his best to appoint qualified people, but a lot of things can go wrong.

    On that, we agree entirely.

    Maybe I'm on an island on this one, but why isn't more attention being paid to what caused the explosion? Did they figure it out and I missed the story?

    Could this be an attack of some sort?

    Although I believe the company or companies involved should completely finance the costs of clean-up/economic damage that resulted, a post-accident analysis will determine whether responsibility belongs solely to BP or is joint. For example, what if the blow-out preventer (manufactured by Cameron International) failed due to some flaw. Does the manufacturer bear a degree of responsibility for what would then be a defective product? I would suspect that consistent with product liability law, the manufacturer would bear some degree of responsibility under such circumstances.

    I was wondering that myself. The silence has been deafening regarding the cause of this calamity.
