    You ended your 4 years in the service in '78, though, which means you hold no rank at all what so ever today. No one will yell "at ease" or "attention" when you enter a room, if they ever did, let alone a thread. Go ahead and tell us to "carry on", we didn't stop for you in the first place

    The blame starts with inspectors and Obama. BP was a big contributor to Obama so he gave them 9 days to fix it.

    Who is a BP lover? Hell...son...we are talking about taking ACTION to stop an active oil flow and PREVENT that oil from reaching the shores and gulf stream. A ****ing leader would say stand back...get the hell out of the way...we will STOP the oil flow and clean this **** up...THEN deal with the payment...not sit back for 40 days and whine about who's fault it is.

    But no...idiotic ideologues kneel, swallow, and beg for another Obasm...why YES!!!! He has been ALL OVER THIS...why...since DAY ONE...

    Dude...oil is still flowing. Crude is all up in the weeds. Aint **** been done.

    Deal with that happy fact.

    What the left is not defending the link that the states are doing more than Obama. I was waiting for the reasons why it is a state issue and Obama is not responsible.

    To blame this oil leak on the president is the epitome of stupidity. But, you gents knock yourselves out.

    I like it that way, personally. When **** goes down the LAST people you want on-scene are politicians, because they're only present to collect vote and poll ratings.

    Integrity check: Texas is currently experiencing the 3rd worst natural disaster in American history....where's you rage over Obama not attending a photo-op in Texas?

In this news conference, the President discussed everything from the Supreme Court to immigration, but did not mention the disaster in the Gulf.
    That's why folks weren't supposed to vote for him. Too late now.

Only then did the administration move into a frenzied state of “action” trying to cover-up their initial mistakes, inaction and utter ineptitude.
    The last thing we need is government intervention here. BP is handling it. They ****ed up tons of **** and caused the accident, but today they're the best people to head up the recovery.

In addition, the controlled burn of the oil was not started until four days after the second leak was discovered.
    Everyone who is out of work can file for unemployment, day-labor and work in another field until BP is ready to buy them off. Don't worry about the local folks, they're squared away.

    Well, no, but even if that were true the citizens failed themselves by not heading the months long warnings to evacuate.

    You got that right. If a Repub were in office...the liberals would have a daily krill death count like they did for Iraq up until a Liberal took office.

Our federal government has many more resources than BP and those resources should have been deployed from the first day, not nine days after the explosion
    Uh, no, big bro needs to take a back seat and wait to be called upon by the professionals. Politicians and bureaucrats are not who you want to deal with a highly specialized situation like this.

    Holy titty ****ing bat nipples!! Who the **** let Obama stay for 6 whole ****ing houres!!

    Oh noes!! teh worldz gona endz!!

    Not blaming him for it as much as his lack of action since it happened. Louisiana has had to take matters in their own hands because Obama is doing nothing.

    Oh no no no, we're not blaming the accident on Obama, we're blaming the resulting socialization of the oil industry on Obama.

    Well ok maybe some folks are blaming the accident on Obama, and truthfully if he's the big dog at the top the buck stops with him regarding lax inspections and unfinished paperwork on previous wells. So, I guess I can kinda sympathize there, but that's not a hill I'm going to die on.
