    It's funny how the free market people scream for government to bail them out when things get out of hand.
    They tried to burn it but, the wind and waves made it almost impossible.

    Great post!

    I did too. He did no such thing. He compared the non-response of the Obama administration and the failure to enact the federal fire boom plan as hypocritical of the media compared to the way they slaughtered Bush on Katrina.



    Which is absolutley true... You all blamed Bush for a failed federal response to a local problem, yet you are all silent on Obama's failure of a federal problem to an interstate and national coastline problem.


    I'm not a big fan of Hannity, however he was spot on here.

    wait 30% less oil to destroy the gulf coast? This is a bad thing how?



    As a free market libertarian, I am all for the Federal government stepping in to protect our ecosystem from an impending disaster...



    Guess, I'm more an environmentalist than most left wingers.

    Off shore drilling will always be "on the table" because that is the only way Obama can garner bipartisan support for cap and trade.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    To my understanding the Obama Administration authorized off shore drilling for Virginia while simultaneously stopping or preventing some kind of drilling elsewhere I believe. Essentially a nice switcharoo where he could hopefully get some republicans happy with him by pointing to one thing, the environmentalists happy with the other, and really have a net neutral affect. I didn't look into the matter extremely closely though so by no means take my word as gospel truth.

    IF this is legitimately a TEMPORARY hold, then I'm fine with it. My only issue is that often times with the government these temporary things because indefinitely temporary type things. Yes, by all means perform some research to be sure that this freak unusual accident does not happen again. However please don't let this be like the issues with nuclear power where something bad happens and a grave over reaction is made on something that could've provided so much benefit in the long term.

    If they didn't want this extreme measure to be taken against offshore drilling then all the companies involved should have made DIRE and ENDLESS efforts to make it more clean and safe.

    But since they didn't give a crap - now they're being served what they never wanted.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
