    This coming from someone who defended Bush for invading a country, that didn't attack us, based on lies causing thousands of Americans to be killed. This coming from someone who defended Bush for taking no action against those in his administration who conspired to out a CIA spy thus putting people's lives in danger. That's rich!

    He's standing up for the American people against a company that has raped our environment, destroyed people's livelihoods and caused the deaths of eleven men by arrogantly ignoring accepted, standard safety procedures all to increase their personal wealth.

    I'd say that sounds damn presidential to me!
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.

    Here you go. I can't defend Obama, let me change the subject.

    The oil spill is not Obama's fault but let's be honest, none of us could grade is response very high. If we love Obama we probably wouldn't grade him any higher than a "C". All of his responses are too little too late so they sound of insincere. Welcome to being president Mr. Obama.

    Re: Obama lashes BP chief, media over oil disaster

    With respect to the article at the beginning of this thread, it is a human tendency to underestimate the scope of an unfolding disaster. Mr. Hayward's initial thinking that the oil leak would be "very, very modest" is par for the course. Keep in mind, even the current Administration underestimated the magnitude of the recession's impact on the unemployment rate. Today, the unemployment rate is notably higher than the initial thinking laid out during the legislative effort to enact the fiscal stimulus. Prior to then, during the previous Administration (and among some Presidential candidates), the idea that the U.S. economy was fundamentally sound was put out and many economists failed to see the unemployment rate exceeding 7.0%-7.5%. Early predictions are far less important than focusing on the problem at hand, namely stemming the leak and then, unpopular as it might be, developing a robust regulatory framework that would ensure that adequate precautions and contingency plans to deal with deepwater accidents are in place. With deepwater drilling likely to increase in the years ahead, especially if research and development of oil alternatives continues to be underemphasized on the policy front, those partaking in such activities should have (1) the capacity to pay for any costs related to accidents/disasters and (2) viable plans for addressing the accidents and mitigating the damage that results before approval is granted or renewed. At the same time, the federal government needs to have adequate equipment/supplies stockpiled at strategic places, mechanisms in place for a near real-time respones, automatic waiver of the Jones Act when such accidents occur, among other things.

    Seriously d00d, here you have Obama ****ting the bed on the BP oil spill and all you can do is attack another poster with your boilerplate bush bashing. Get over it, he's not the president anymore, and the gulf coast is being destroyed while obama fiddles with not waiving the jones act and playing a game of brinkmanship with BP.


    Do you think it's intelligent to try to bankrupt the one company that will have the means to pay out the claims? Do you think it's intelligent to keep in place the Jones act when we have dozens of countries willing to help?


    Jeez, one would think you the biggest partisan hack on the board would even see that Obama is has ****ed this all up and needs to un**** himself. rengal, carville, and many other lefties have, yet you sit there in your blind partisan hack ways, and say nothing critical of your god king. Pathetic.

    Thank God for that. Yet, his crimes continue to impact my country. And yet you still defend your hero.

    Jeez, one would think you the biggest partisan hack

    Looking in the mirror again? Can you make one post without your childish name calling.
    How far back would we go to find a post of yours without name calling?

    and say nothing critical of your god king. Pathetic.

    If you had an honest bone in your body you would admit that I did lay blame for this on Obama... but... we have come to expect no such integrity from the biggest bully on the forum.

    This is a lie, I actually have stated on numerous threads that I blame the last 3 administrations for dropping the ball on the 1994 plan.


    FAIL
