    Obama get's blame for not having fire booms on hand. You're right. Other than that they've done a great job with the problem, especially considering the terrible weather that hasn't helped in the least.

    Bush gets blame for the metric ****-ton of stuff that went wrong during and after Katrina, including the lack of funding and the missalocation of funds that were supposed to help rebuild. Trying to compare the two is ridiculous.

    I really blame Bush for his idiot decision of giving those nee'rdowells those checks for $2000 to help them buy food, clothing, and help them get back on their feet. How many lap dances and hookers did that cost us taxpayers?

    There's really no telling. I can't tell you how many big screen tv's were purchased with those debit cards.

    Once waves hit 3 feet, you can't burn.

    Besides with no fire booms available, The Obama Administration has failed at least as much as the Bush administration has failed with Katrina.
    How is not having equipment you can't use a failure?

    They should, but unlike you, I am not willing to destroy thousands of miles of gulf coast and entire fishing industries to punish "big oil".

    As I have proven by your links, they had about 14 days to use this equipment.

    According to at least one expert, 95% of the oil could have been contained.


    Gouguet speculated that burning could have captured 95 percent of the oil as it spilled from the well.

    Even if he was only 25% right, that makes this failure of government all that more tragic.




    LOL. Your pedestrian attack needs work.


    Well then, please explain why you are making excuses for this government, when clearly I have proven they screwed the pooch on this one.

    FAIL.

    The biggest reason you "win" any argument is that people don't put the time in to getting the hard data to prove you're wrong. Took me some time to find that off NOAA's website. Check the 9th column from the left. Pretty much every day after the accident wave action prevented burn offs.

    As I have proven by your links, they had about 14 days to use this equipment.
    Try again. Unless you want to argue that NOAA is a socialistic evil liberal organization.

    You really outta to stop getting your information from blogs.

    Well then, please explain why you are making excuses for this government, when clearly I have proven they screwed the pooch on this one.
    Only if you ignore the actual data. Btw, before you embarrass yourself again, that's meters, not feet for the unit of measure in the 9th column

    What happened to "Yes we can?".

    Yes we can... read divisive speeches from le teleprompteur.
    Yes we can... demonize republicans.
    Yes we can... piss on our police.
    Yes we can... nationalize industries.
    Yes we can... crap on Wall Street.
    Yes we can... socialize healthcare.
    Yes we can... side with illegal aliens.
    Yes we can... foster racial divisiveness.

    WHY?

    Because... "Now is the time we have been waiting for."

    This is what we have been waiting for?
    OK... BUT...

    ... Hey Obi...

    Day 1... we're waiting.
    Day 2... And waiting.
    Day 3... and waiting.
    Day 4... And waiting.
    Day 5... and waiting.
    Day 6... And waiting.
    Day 7... and waiting.
    Day 8... And waiting.
    Day 9... and waiting.
    ...

    Can we say... Epic Fail? I think we can.

    I think I know why it is taking so long.

    Obi is waiting to astound the world with his Biblical Powers.
    The man who can control the ebb and flow of the oceans, a wee little oil spill ought to represent little trouble.

    But... we're waiting...

    uhm, am I missing something? its under 3 feet on several days, the maximum you claim these things work at, though you haven't backed it up.



    Try again. Unless you want to argue that NOAA is a socialistic evil liberal organization.

    Now your being obtuse with a moronic strawman. Why would I suggest NOAA is a socialistic evil organization?


    Can you debate without acting so foolish?



    You really outta to stop getting your information from blogs.



    Only if you ignore the actual data. Btw, before you embarrass yourself again, that's meters, not feet for the unit of measure in the 9th column


    Speaking of embarrasment, so you think acting like a tough guy on the internet with your snotty attitude is anything but embarrassing?


    there are several days where the waves are below 3 feet to which is the number you claimed, that I have yet to see proof.
