    The next thing we hear, is that the CG shut the barges down to make sure they crews had the right kind of life vests.
    Not that difficult, if it's sold it'll keep you afloat. But, that's the fed for ya.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The biggest thing this incident highlights is the failure that is the Obama administration. By the spills standard, Obama is making Bush look like he was 'Johnny on the spot' with Katrina.

    I mean Obama is refusing help from other countries that could have prevented the oil from reaching the Marshes. Obama is stopping states like La. from doing things on its own to protect its coast line. And Obama is dithering, appointing commissions, and boards filled with not Oil experts, but rather anti Oil academics bent on killing our own oil extraction here in the US to further an agenda of Cap and Trade.

    IMHO, it is criminal what he is doing.

    This is the same kind of beauracracy that hindered us with Katrina. Government loses again.

    Apparently these barges are operational again.
