    I blame both parties.

    Do you think the government should not respond at all ??? Sounds like it.

    The Coast Guard is responsible for oil spill prevention and mitigation in federal waters.

    Neither party should take blame for a mistake made by BP.

    I say 'let the states deal with it'.

    So then you are blaming the federal government for a mistake made by BP? Good to know.

    Environmental activities of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) fall within the service’s program for protection of natural resources, and consist of maritime oil spill prevention, marine debris, and pollution response preparedness. Protection of living marine resources and fisheries also falls in this category, but is not discussed here. Marine environmental protection is one of six “non-homeland security missions” specified in the Homeland Security Act of 2002.

    Which part of the Federal Government are the 'two parties' not involved in? I'll wait for you to determine just who it is you want to blame and then explain why a mistake made by BP employees should be the fault of the government or 'the two parties'.

    I'll type a little slower so you'll understand. I blame BP for the spill and both for the slow response to the spill... just as I've said all along.

    Got it now ??? I'd hate to confuse you further.
