    Re: Poll: BP Oil Spill Response Rated Worse than Katrina

    This is the worst response to a disaster I've every seen. Instead of putting protection of the coastline as the first priority, Obama has spent a month pointing fingers at BP and talking about how responsible they are for this. Obama can't do **** about the leak in any meaningful way, but he does have the power and resources to help the governors of the coastal states prepare for the oil coming ashore. He should have jumped on this first thing, and thrown everything he had at it. He'd have been a big hero by now, because he helped the people first. Beating up BP could have come later. Face it, Obama ****ed up.

    Also not waiving the Jones act, and not even speaking to the CEO of BP. He **** the bed on this one.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Why didn't the Dem Congress repeal it?
