    BP Oil Spill: Against Gov. Jindal's Wishes, Crude-Sucking Barges Stopped by Coast Gua

    Sixteen barges sat stationary today, although they were sucking up thousands of gallons of BP's oil as recently as Tuesday... It was a homegrown idea that seemed to be effective at collecting the thick gunk.

    "These barges work. You've seen them work. You've seen them suck oil out of the water," said Jindal.

    The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges.

    Krewe Obama working, since Day 1, to insure that the spill response works as well as possible.

    WELCOME TO OBAMALAND AMERICA.

    EVERY decision requires words with a committee before a decision is reached and that decision can then be passed onto the next committee and so on ad nauseum.

    Only after all committee's have arrived at the decision individually can it be passed to the Coast Guard, who then have to ask the Messiah whether the work can be carried out.

    The hold up was likely because Obama was out practicing on a Golf course somewhere?

    Ahh the irony and double standard of the right and Bobby Jindal.

    Here they are pissed that the Coast Guard are doing their jobs by making sure that ships and barges have fire extinguishers and life vests on board.

    But they are also pissed that other government agencies did not do their jobs correctly with a tad of corruption and that ultimately could have lead to the disaster... oh the double standard... Seems to me, the right and Bobby Jindal will take anything and attack the Obama administration for political gain.

    How about dear Bobby Jindal get the conformation the Coast Guard needs instead of standing there whining?

    How about some common sense.
    Let them work, come aboard, but don't have 16 barges at stand still.

    I wonder if life vests and fire extinguishers were the only thing?

    Didn't the Admiral of the Coast Guard just say he was signing waivers like there's no tomorrow?

    Obviously you have never been in the military.

    Everyone attacks anything government operates as poorly run except the military. But the military is government run with acres of policies and regulations that unbeknownst to many here were in place before Obama or Bush.

    another ignorant post from our european friend....


    Boats sitting waiting for confirmation?


    who stopped them from going out and why couldn't they do the inspection?


    This is nonsense.
    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 did it take the CG over a month to approve the sand berms and the homemade vaccum barges? The CG approved ten this week, nearly two months after the spill bringing the total number to a whopping 13.

    I find it hard to believe how some Leftists scream about how bad this disaster is, yet condone holidng up the containment effort over a few life jackets.

    That makes as much sense as putting all the oilfield hands out of work for our own good.
