    Riiiight. Obama and the federal government are doing NOTHING.

    An Air Force Reserve C-130H aircraft conducted an aerial spraying mission this weekend to help disperse the oil, but weather prevented a second C-130H deployed to the region from spraying, Northcom spokesman John Cornelio told American Forces Press Service.

    In addition, nearly 600 Louisiana National Guard troops have been called to federal active duty to support the mission, with up to 5,400 more to mobilize as needed, based on Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates’ approval of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s request last week. Jindal requested as many as 6,000 National Guard troops to add security, medical support, engineers, communications capability and cleanup crews to the oil slick containment effort.

    Meanwhile, the onsite incident coordinator, Coast Guard Rear Adm. Mary Landry, is reviewing similar requests from the governors of neighboring Alabama, Mississippi and Florida to mobilize their Guard forces under Title 32 authority, Lapan said.

    Meanwhile, as the oil slick moves landward, the Navy has positioned equipment aimed at reducing the slick’s impact on Gulf Coast beaches and critical wetlands. The Navy dispatched 66,000 feet of inflatable oil boom with anchoring equipment, along with seven skimming systems and supporting gear to the region, along with 50 civilian contractors to operate and maintain it, reported Navy spokesman Lt. Myers Vasquez.

    Workers at a staging area at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., also set out booms to help protect the shoreline and eco-system in the Pensacola area from the spill, reported Navy Lt. Michael Frost, the station’s port operations officer.

    Naval Air Station Pensacola is one of seven staging areas that have been set up from Louisiana to Florida to protect sensitive shorelines, Frost said. Other staging areas are in Biloxi and Pascagoula, Miss.; Venice, Port Fourchon and Port Sulphur, La.; and Theodore, Ala. --
    Military Supports Federal Oil Spill Response
    Of course, that's just the military. We've also got the Department of Homeland Security, the Coast Guard, the Department of the Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Department of Defense, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health all doing "nothing."

    Tell you what, since you have all the answers and insist our government is doing "nothing" about this oil spill, why don't you tell us what it should be doing.

    And I'd like specific actions you want the government to take that (a) have some basis in reality and (b) aren't being done already.

    Ok. Go.

    So am I, I have no idea how you got that from my post. That's not at all what I said.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Ok. This has been debunked here already but, you seem very eager to dive in. What proof do you have that Obama did "approximately Jack ****" for 40 days. Be specific.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Big sis today spent an hour talking about how BP has a disaster and BP has oil flowing and BP isnt doing enough and how the fed is already creating an independent team to decide how much to penalize BP because BP is letting the oil get to the shores and BP hasnt stopped the oil from reaching the marshes and BP hasnt contained anything...


    umm...


    Oil is still flowing. Oil is still reaching shores and choking industry. But the fed is by golly watching.

    Now can you just IMAGINE what would have been the response if Bush had said Katrina was terrible and we are watching to see how bad Nagin has failed and how bad the state has failed and we are just going to wait for 40 days and then we will know who to punish for failing to provide for and protect their citizens...

    or like Clinton's FEMA director had said...well..we'd like to get in there...but golly...theres sure a lot of water...but...in the next few weeks...well..then you should see a lot of action...5-6 weeks tops...

    Like I said...this thread speaks volumes...about you.

    It is logically illogical to attempt to prove a negative. According to logic 101, it is positives that must be proved. So show me what Obama HAS done in 40 days, and you win the argument.

    Re: Oil Creeps Deeper Into Delicate Marshes

    all obamites have to do is come up with exactly what he's done

    instead, they demand his open eyed critics prove (LOL!) all the thousands of things he hasn't done

    i'll tell you what he's done

    he's EXEMPTED epa studies

    he's EXPEDITED permits, against federal prescriptions

    HE's been cozy with the mms for SIXTEEN MONTHS

    he BORROWED booms from BRAZIL

    that was on DAY FOURTEEN

    he SAID his BOOT was on bp's neck

    he BLAMED everyone else, he always does, par for his little pee wee golf course, hardly inspiring, hardly encouraging confidence, the opposite of presidential

    NO LEADERSHIP

    THE BUCK STOPS

    THE BUCK STOPS WHERE OIL DESTROYS COMMUNITIES

    34 days, 18 hours, 6 minutes, 31 seconds...

    STOP THIS LEAK, mr president!

    NOW!!!

    Where are these elusive "logic 101" classes? I've been shopping collages and I have yet to see this class in any course catalog.
