    That is Governments prime job right? Protection of it's people?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. 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.

    How do you know he hasn't been doing that?

    I don't see the importance of this. They don't need to tell us what they will do, they need to just do it and we can form our opinions on the situation on what they do or don't do ratehr than what they say.

    Oh really? And exactly where do you think these "more resources" are going to come from? Should The President wave a magic wand to cover BP's ass?

    Do any of you Big Oil apologists even begin to understand that NO Federal agency now in existence has the equipment for working at a depth of 5000 ft. below the ocean? Or (more likely) you just so freakin' blinded by your partisan BS that you don't give a crap about reality?

    Well, I know it because it's not being communicated. You see, politicians don't do a damn thing unless they get credit for it and when do something, they let the people KNOW they are doing something so they can use it to their advantage later.

    If like you say he's doing that, can you point me to the evidence he's doing it? If he is doing it I want to give him full credit.

    I remember quite clearly that being the mantra coming out of her mouth.

    So who's screwing big-oil? I think it's obvious.

    When it comes down to it this incident plays into Obama's anti-oil favor and works against the 'pro-oil' corner. The less Obama actually does, and successfully dishes off onto others (like he's done with everything else- Blaming Bush for sunspots) then he's full of crap, but will be held in higher faith.

    There I found one link in like 15 seconds, it's not that hard to look for stuff.

    Are you serious? Why does it matter if the government tells us every detail of what they are doing. You need to learn to judge on results not what people say.

    "The bipartisan National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling is tasked with providing recommendations on how we can prevent and mitigate the impact of any future spills that result from offshore drilling."

    It's purpose is to provide recommendations concerning future spills, not the present.

    It doesn't address this current issue at the moment.

    It's not about coving anyone's ass it's about stopping the oil. And the resources come from wherever they are - public sector, private sector, overseas... If the President or his office calls up and says "We need you to help assess the damage or help lessen the affects and work with BP until the oil is stopped" people will go and do it. You don't say "no" to the President of the United States during a disaster like this.

    Who's being partisan? I'm just asking for the President to take all necessary action to help stop the bleeding here and if he's doing that already, to tell we the people, what Government is doing. Extract your head from the Obama blow up doll and look at this for what it is... a disaster that has now spewed oil since April 20th, between 2,000 and 5,000 barrels a day. All total between 68,000 and 170,000 barrels to date. President Obama called the spil a potentially unprecedented environmental disaster..

    What's being done by Government to protect our coasts our resources and the environment other than saying the White House will keep their "boot on the throat" of BP. I don't want a boot to their throat I want the oil gushing to cease and our Government to identify what they're going to do to help clean it up. We have plenty of time later for lawsuits, blame and the rest of it.

    Clear yet?

    You didn't read your own link did you. This is for future, not the present spill.

    That's the problem with using Google and not actually knowing what you're posting. And this is all fine and dandy, but I'm not talking about the future, I want to know what's being done now.

    How the hell do we know what they're doing unless they tell us what they're doing? The information by osmosis doesn't work.

    And I'm serious but you haven't really thought out what you're saying so I'm assuming you're just spinning with no real goal. How about a little honesty... too much to ask?

    I still don't understand why you insist on judging people by what they say and not what they do.
