    That is what the probe is for. We will find out in due time.

    I somewhat agree. This is how politics works, blame must be deflected. It will be like this until the end of the country.

    I do not agree that it will slow down finding an ultimate solution though.

    Okay, I will.

    Dear Idiotic Journalists and what seems to be a list of made up people:

    Obama is doing something and things are being done by the government.

    Sincerly,
    The Truth.

    Why would I ask them when it was you making the claim. Don't go blaming others for what you write, take responsibility for it.

    The government can multitask. They can clean up the oil and bring BP to justice at the same time, and they ARE doing both.

    Still not going to take responsibility for your own words?

    And who is BP? A bunch of overworked, highly paid, highly specialized specialists? The CEO? The Board of Directors? The Chief Boardmember? Stockholders? The sub-contractor who was drilling the well? The individuals who bought the likely defective parts? Those who made the likely defective parts?
