    Re: Oil slick poses political peril for Obama

    April 27: Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), chair of the Energy and Commerce committee, writes a letter (.pdf) to the chairman of BP notifying him of an investigation into "what the companies knew about the risks of drilling at the site and the adequacy of the companies' response plans."

    Less than a week from when Obama announces offshore drilling we have the biggest explosion and oil release in the history of the Gulf, and possibly the worst in the history of the country.

    I don't usually buy into conspiracy crap, but the timing seems a bit odd. Does anyone else think that environmentalists could be behind this, somehow?

    I don't know, I'm just not sure.

    either way, obama's declaration to drill ROBS him of this issue

    he's as diligent an advocate for drilling, on record, as drill-baby herself

    LOL!

    No. What's pathetic is those who cry "gov't stay out of my business and that of the free enterprise system" one minute then crying "you didn't respond fast enough to a man-made disaster" the next.

    The BP spill is on going incident a chronic illness rather then an acute one.

    When the first few days the reports were that it would be fixed in day or so, and that the oil will be contained, there would have been no need to panic.

    The best and only thing Obama can do is state that the people negatively effected by this oil spill will be compenstated and that BP will be doing the compensation
    Naturally assuming BP is to blame, at the moment there is some doubt whether BP are solely to blame.
    Haliburton has been mentioned.
    So the great Messiah blames the first name that comes to mind, whereas a more reasoned person might decide that after the mess has been cleaned up (as much as is possible) an inquiry would decide just who is to blame.

    It's no longer possible for me to take your posts seriously.

    I voted for him twice and consistently defended him at the time. In fact, I still don't blame him for Katrina. I blame the local, corrupt politicians and the governor of Louisiana.

    Do you want to try again?

    See what happens when you ASSume?
