    Nor should he take any action unless specifically requested by BP and/or Transocian.

    If Obama should do anything he should have the previous wells inspected.

    I think I missed something here. What socialization?

    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?!
    You also did not hear him on the Nashville flood.

    My point is Obama has done nothing to the point Louisiana is now doing it themselves without any Feds help.

    To say Obama has been on this is wrong. Then again BP did give Obama lots of campaign money.

    No one is blaming the oil rig explosion on the president. Just like only a complete idiot would blame Bush for Katrina.

    no...Obama gets slammed for doing approximately Jack **** for 40 days. You only get slammed for blindly defending him.

    Im guessing...now...this is just a guess mind you...but the people here on this site that have some oil experience and som e geological experience...Im betting if we put them in a room and said..."you have 8 hours...I want 4 viable and actionable solutions in those 8 hours...no excuses..." my guess is within 8 hours we would have several options and be executing by damn each one of them til we ended the oil flow. But no...all we get are excuses and its not their fault.

    You know the rule, 'never let a crisis go to waist', so keep an eye on the story as it unfolds.

    Obama to create special commission on Gulf Coast oil spill - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    The commission will have seven members, none of whom are currently in government.

    In addition to the causes of the ongoing spill, the commission will study offshore oil drilling practices in general, rig safety, government regulations, federal oversight, and environmental issues.

    The commission will be asked to report back to Obama within six months.

    I completely disagree...as president knowing that he had an impending disaster for the environment, for the economy, for the multiple industries...he should have moved heaven and earth to end the oil flow and then turned BP upside down and shook every penny out of their pockets to pay for it...AFTER the problem was fixed.

    Instead their answer is...well...dont worry...because after its all said and done...then we'll make em pay!

    Creating a commission to study offshore drilling qualifies as "socializing the oil industry?" I'm even more confused now
