    Chernobyl was a whole different ball game. It's effects on humanity, just as the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki still prevail to this day. The ground is still iradiated, and children are still born with defects and there are high rates of Lukemia. Oil can be washed away, and does not infect people with diseases long after it is gone.

    Doesn't make the oil spill any less bad, all I'm saying is that the comparison is not fair. Not least of all because not a single soul has been lost... or am I wrong?

    ie, nothing has been done of substance to clean up this mess

    what is obama waiting for?

    if they can't stop the leak they should at least be out there, y'know, trying to contain the damage

    instead, he's on VACATION

    he's bouncing basketballs with the blue devils

    he's fundraising for bitchy barbara boxer

    "the media may get tired of this story but we will not," the president PROJECTED friday before flying to chicago for the weekend

    he WISHES the media would just drop this

    it interrupts all the fun of being president

    but they won't, never

    the msm will be all over this chernobyl off louisiana for years

    pray

    40 days, 7 hours, 9 minutes, 43 seconds...
    Interesting... we suddenly have a conservative environmentalist complaining about the vacation time of the Executive in Chief..... can Armageddon be far behind?

    No one was more asleep at the wheel than the previous administration:

    This guy is at least on the job.

    Actually, 11 people were killed, but that is incidental. Hundreds of thousands are or will be in economic ruin, which will result in collateral death.....and an ecology is destroyed for generations. The toxins released into this eco-system will also result in future death/quality of life issues. I think the analogy is reasonably on target.

    Staying within the OP parameters, this was a low down dirty trick by BP. And to bus them in instead of using locals is even worse. There are plenty of people who's livelihoods have been disrupted or destroyed by this spill and could certainly use the extra cash. BP is showing they have learned nothing from this.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
