    And if you were standing next to the fire that was started by BP, wouldn't you want BP to pay your moving expenses since it was their fault?

    The oil is still "out there". The leak was a mile under water. The skimmers are only hitting what's on or near the surface. They can't "clean" the water down an entire mile. The oil has probably been scattered all over the Gulf and possibly out into the Atlantic. This is heavy crude oil we are talking about, not the same oil that you put in your car and that will float on water. There's bound to be plenty on the Gulf floor, plenty in the water that hasn't reached the floor or the surface yet and the currents have taken it to God only knows where. We will likely see the oil showing up in places we never imagined 20-30 years from now.

    The sea life has been impacted the most. This will cause a strain on the ecosystem in the Gulf (and most likely other places) that could be disastrous. I'm all for hoping for the best, and I do, but the reality of this has yet to set in and it isn't going to set in during this President's administration nor any of the next three to six administrations. This is going to be a long, long road and the end is nowhere in sight.

    The same way that I would want Obama to pay for my lost income due to the moratorium? I've lost a ****load of money to this spill and not a single mother****er has called me to to give me money to pay my bills.

    Certainly not the piece-a-**** president that put me out of work.

    It only adds to the joke, when that asshole says that he won't rest until every American that wants a job, has one.

    Does BP get to renegotiate the 20 Billion shake-down?

    .
    The problem is what happens with those microbes. Ever heard of the dead zone in the gulf? Caused by those microbes. They eat the oil, sure. But in doing so, they deplete the water of oxygen, killing everything else in the area.
