    Thanks for pointing out a typo. I guess when you want to mouthfoam in defense of party, that's always a good start.....



    Who leased them the area to do this drilling? Your false requirments are not based in any reality....


    fact is inspections were muddled, the governments containment plan wasn't properly equipped... etc...


    Actually I agree with you that its all BP's fault, however, the Government made several key mistakes here under 3 presidents that led to the atmosphere that caused this disaster....



    But I wouldn't expect a partisan hack like you to see that.... Funny though I bet you saw it all over a hurricane.

    I do agree with you about the nationalizing part, but I don't agree that it was entirely BP's fault. The government has been lax in administering safety regulations pretty much since Bush, and let big oil companies get away with saving "a few bucks" rather than to err on the side of caution.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I dont see ANYONE excusing BP for their role. That THEY have failed is immaterial. Sue the hell out of them. AFTER you get the oil stopped.

    Seriously...if this was the Bush administration do you expect ANYONE to believe you would be sitting back saying..."well...golly...it isnt THEIR fault. Bush didnt cause it. Its someone elses problem and THEY have the responsibility to clean it up..."

    Yes. And it is fulfilling that role. This still does not make the government responsible for the blowout, no matter how much you'd like to lay this at Obama's feet.

    Glinda,

    Ah, a, ahhhhhhh... or...
    No, no, no in the words of Reverend Wright.

    I did not say they were responsible, but they do have a responsibility in national emergencies.
    Can we say that outside of BP... they are the ones we have been waiting for?

    YES WE CAN.

    Obi has been jerking-off for a long time.
    Time to put Mr. Spanky back in his trousers and do some work.

    Why not cede that the government shares partial responsibility for this? If we authorize safety regulations and pay millions to regulate an industry, we should certainly expect they take some responsibility for getting the job done.

    Glinda, this is what the Feds are for. National security, assisting with catastrophes, though they didn't do the latter when cities were destroyed.

    It was not created for "spreading the wealth around".

    Obi has had a chance to shine. TILT/
    To show us he is a competent leader. TILT/
    To show us his brilliant judgment. TILT/

    He has his "foot on their neck", but what now?
    Foot on neck no stop oil puking at floor of Gulf of Mexico.

    The Minerals Management Service, an outrageously corrupt government agency under the Bush/Cheney administration.

    In September 2008, reports by the Inspector General of the Interior Department, Earl E. Devaney, were released that implicated over a dozen officials of the MMS of unethical and criminal conduct in the performance of their duties. The investigation found MMS employees had taken drugs and had sex with energy company representatives. MMS staff had also accepted gifts and free holidays amid "a culture of ethical failure", according to the investigation.

    The New York Times's summary states the investigation revealed "a dysfunctional organization that has been riddled with conflicts of interest, unprofessional behavior and a free-for-all atmosphere for much of the Bush administrations watch." --Wiki
    Ten days after taking office as Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar asked the Justice Department to reopen criminal investigations of MMS employees involved in Devaney's report which uncovered violations of federal regulations and ethics rules by employees of the Lake Charles, La., office of the Minerals Management Service. Many of the employees mentioned in the report resigned, were fired or were referred for prosecution. Those who were still working at MMS were placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of a personnel review.

    The biggest mistake the government made was allowing deep-water drilling in the first place.

    This is rich coming from the likes of you, chuckles.

    Still, facts are stubborn things: BP is ultimately responsible for all of this mess. Not only did BP not install an acoustic fail-safe, and not repair the annular gasket that had been damaged four weeks earlier, it also adamantly insisted on circumventing standard procedures to "save time and money." On the day of the explosion there was an argument between the managers of BP and Transocean over whether or not to remove the drilling mud Halliburton placed the concrete plugs. BP won; the mud was removed.

    And.... kaboom. BP owns this ****up.
