    And it is THE biggest story, bar none. I don't want a bunch of fish and birds to die either, but if this was a terrorist attack and a sign of things to come, then that is where the focus should primarily be.

    Someone did this. Oil platform don't have a history of just blowing up on their own. They withstand hurricanes for pete's sake.

    How do you know they don't? Have you researched it? Does the ability to withstand hurricanes make an oil rig more likely to prevent an accidental explosion? Have you counted the number of oil rig explosions in history?

    Or are you just pulling some random idea out of your ass?

    I'd like to vote for option 5, personally. I don't want to know what else is up there, either.

    that's disgusting and stunningly immature

    meanwhile, adults are quite concerned about the white house's completely inept response to this disastrous oil spill in the gulf

    SIXTEEN TIMES on the sunday talks dhs napolitano and interior salazar REPEATED their obviously spoon fed TALKING POINTS

    we've been "all hands on deck..."

    "FROM DAY ONE"

    the point---to non partisans, the white house wordsmiths look so WAGGISH

    ie, that's NOT good

    you really don't want people LAUGHING at you at dangerous times like these which cry out for effective leadership

    indeed, pretty much the entire chattering class is noticing

    the associated press:

    The Associated Press: SPIN METER: There since Day One? Maybe not

    politico:

    White House in P.R. 'panic' over spill - Glenn Thrush and Mike Allen - POLITICO.com

    why does this white house always LOOK so defensive?

    the entire cast is incompetent

    Why did Obama send a SWAT team?

    While we're all freaking out over an oil spill that is days late in harming a beach, nary a word is being said about why this thing exploded in the first place.

    THAT should be the story, but we're more concerned about the effect on the mating habits of the dodo bird.

    You mean adult partisan hacks who are desperate to score any point they can against Obama.

    OK, I'll address the latest insult from the biggest punk on this board.

    Where is the reporting on just what caused this? The media is all in a tizzy over this impending oil spill that so far hasn't done diddly (I'm not saying it won't).

    Meanwhile, Obama is sending SWAT teams to the rig, not a word is being said, a 40-year-old white male who morphed into a young Pakistani dude tried to blast Manhattan, and illegal immigrants are shooting people in Arizona.

    And no, if an oil platform has exploded in the last 40 years, I haven't heard about it. Have you?

    he's comprehensively clueless

    he originally said he would not go to louisiana

    then he went

    he said his offshore drilling program would proceed (LOL!)

    now it's naturally on hold

    you want to see the LINKS?

    now he's promising bigtime that BP WILL PAY

    this morning, however, the white house had to come out and admit that, barring "gross negligence" or "willful misconduct," bp's costs are capped at a piddly 75 mil

    W.H.: BP may avoid some costs - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com

    which is why bob menendez, frank lautenberg and florida's bill nelson have hurriedly introduced legislation to raise the limit to 10 bil

    and, of course, the white house is eager to endorse---LOL!
