    Do you think he knows that Eisenhower played more rounds of golf then I believe all other presidents, even during crisies?

    For some reason apdst thinks that lawyer can take command on a highly technical problem that even seasoned veteran oil engineers are having problems trying to fix. And apdst is the same user who said Obama is clueless. Huh. Does incoherence come hand in hand with the crazy?

    You do realize that Ike wasn't president during The Battle of The Bulge...yes?

    Again, this thing is completely stupid.

    If it made you mad, you got played.
    Nothing but an appeal to wealth envy and "big oil" haters.

    This guy, like the POTUS, can not make the oil leak stop with a magic wand, nor are there things he can do 24/7 to make this situation better.
    The fixes for this problem are 95% in the hands of the people in the field working on it.

    You fail on several grounds (like usual):

    1) Ike was a military general trained in war
    2) Obama is a lawyer
    3) War =/= oil spill
    4) Obama is not an oil engineer
    5) Ike played a hell of alot of golf during several of his presidecy's crisis

    So comparing Ike, who was a general in war to a lawyer in a highly technical engineering problem is pretty much dishonest as you can get. Which for you is pretty damn high. Furthermore, it's hilarious you named Ike, the most golf playing leader we've ever had. If he was president you'd be hammering him for playing golf.

    Can you imagine the situation if it were just as some people want it.

    Obama calls Tony Hayward.

    Obama, "Hey Tony, is it fixed yet?"

    Tony, "Hold on, I'll check."

    Tony calls the field tech.

    Tony, "Hey field tech, is it fixed yet?"

    Field Tech, "No sir, we've told you for the past 50+ days that it won't be fixed until August."

    Tony, "PBO and I can't take a break until it is fixed, I'll be calling again in 15 minutes."

    That sounds rational.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. The criticism of Hayward is foolish.

    I thought you would just apologize for an insensitive, pathetic statement …

    But, you didn't apologize, instead, you added contempt to your ridicule …

    And, then you added insults on top of it all …

    So, what are we to conclude? Anybody who objects to your monstrous opinions is offhandedly labeled stupid and we are told there is no ‘quick fix’ for them. Their opinions should be prevented from ever being heard by anybody. They should be ‘sectioned off.’ They should be gassed or at least a warning sign put on their foreheads.

    These are the things you post; they are offensive and despicable and wrong.

    I probably agreed with a majority of your posts, and, much of your humor was funny to me. But, now, I see such hate and despising in you and it is shocking to me.

    To be fair to that statement, many a father and son will not have a nice weekend for a long time because of what him and his company did...
