    To put it in terms you might appreciate: If Obama said that New Orleans will eventually rebuild and be stronger than ever, would you interpret that as him saying that it's okay that Katrina devastated it?
    The only thing here that is mindbogglingly anything is your refusal to hear me. I said I put his comments in context with his other it-ain't-a-big-deal posts. To assume I would "appreciate" an analogy simply because you make it about Obama shows your flawed assumptions.

    I assume you can show where I said that.

    So, be my guest and... prove it.

    Good luck!

    Clearly.

    In that case, I'll leave you to it.

    Are you saying that you do not want to shut down offshore drilling?

    You made an accusation. I'm tossing the ball back onto your side of the court.

    Prove it.

    It's a fair question. Why can't you give us a fair answer? Clarify where I'm wrong.

    No it's not. It's an unfair and unsubstantiated accusation. Explain why you made it and I'll respond to that. You don't get to throw **** at the wall and then expect an explanation to what sticks.

    What's done is done. Call me in 261 days...then I will start getting a little concerned.
    Where did you get that stat? Did you mean 261 days from now? Because it'll only be around 25 days until it reaches Exxon-Valdez levels.


    I'm not attacking, I'm just curious.


    Heres a quote from NOAA.

    According to NOAA, an estimated 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) a day is coming from the remaining ruptures. At that rate, this leak would surpass the 11 million gallons spilled by the Exxon Valdez in 1989 in mid-June if left unchecked
    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/...of-mexico.html


    BP's worst estimates put it at 2.5 million gallons PER DAY. Which equates out to 81,873,000 as of today...


    Outside estimates put it at 1 million per day, which is still 34 million gallons leaked as of today. This may not be as bad as what happened in Kuwait in 1991, but it will be the worst in U.S history..hopefully forever

    Yet Obama and the government are doing nothing to help BP stop the leak
