    Maybe you should actually read my posts before you foam at the mouth. I said nothing even close to that. Take your meds.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Read your posts? All I've seen in your posts is, "BP/Halliburton" and Halliburton is responsible, because, "Halliburton was working on the rig when it blew out".

    Oh, trust me, I've read your posts, sir.

    Right. At least one of them is responsible. I haven't seen anyone else implicated, except for possibly TransOcean. I'm not sure why you're foaming at the mouth to demonstrate that it wasn't Halliburton specifically. Do you work for them or something? Own their stock?

    Here's what I said on the subject:
    If it was caused by an error on the platform, then it is still BP and/or Halliburton's fault.
    I'm not sure what is so difficult to comprehend about this statement, but in any case, I don't feel like walking you through it, word by word. If you like, maybe you can get a grown-up to explain it to you.

    I don't think I misunderstood anything you said...!!!!

    According to you, no matter what, Halliburton is at fault too. And, you don't even have a clue about what went wrong. Yeah, It appears that I read your posts quite closely and most definitely comprehended your meaning. Thanks!

    Someone slap him, he's President of the USA, not CEO of the World.

    He should be above this, but he is taking a beating and this is all he knows what to do. Agitate.

    That said, I didn't agree with the calls that he should be more emotional. I don't want bad acting... I want leadership... which he failed to produce. Now he looks like a puppet with the polls or press pulling his strings. He is grasping and it has made it worse, not better.

    Engage Mr. President damn it... but it is too late. The damage is done.

    He should have been more engaged, he should have done a better job as an executive. Instead he sends lawyers, he was detatched.
    He should have cancelled his appearances at events, golf, and even vacation.
    He should never have said he was engaged since Day 1... facts spoke clearly otherwise. Had he said he underestimated the potential... people would have understood it... but he tried to pull the wool over peoples eyes and that pissed off folks even more.

    The Presidency is not a job you come to with the goal of learning how to lead. Or coming to office trying to transform yourself from an agitator to statesman. But it is what we have, and he is implementing what he knows... agitating... and his attempts at statesmanship have been as awful as his handling of this oil spill.

    Hopefully America won't make the same fatal error next time. If we do... we're screwed.

    He's feeding the "big oil" haters.
    That's his shtick, did you expect anything else?

    It's boring when we constantly rehash articles of "stupid **** politicians say."

    Yeah I'd say that borders on insanity,
    YEAH, I'd say insanity is putting it lightly, the very day he uttered and claimed he was told by God to invade Iraq at the same time he was also already claiming he was hiding out in caves on the border of Paskistan and Afghanistan, seems to me God got the directions wrong and another thing , why didn't " God the Almighty " tell him exactly where Osama Bin Laden was hiding. This is the way Bush and God could have saved millions of innocent lives and the ancient history and property of the Iranian People....

    This famous day he said God told him to go to war with Iraq, he should have been voted out of office, tied up in a straight jacket, strapped down on a table and rolled out of the Oval Office into a hospital emergency room, tested for drugs, and sent as quick as it is humanly possible to the best asylum the country has to offer and treated for his condition of Insanity !!!!

    I was going to point out the absurdity of your post, then I happened to notice where you're from.

    First off, that statement is an "allegation" and there is no proof outside of a quote from a Palestinian official that he actually said that. So that is up for debate. Putting that aside, you seem to misread the entire quote however, and assume that the quote implies Bin Laden was in Iraq, something the quote does not actually imply.

    You then go on to say (and I quote) "This is the way Bush and God could have saved millions of innocent lives and the ancient history and property of the Iranian People...." I have to ask... what "ancient history" of the Iranian people has been destroyed due to this?
