    When you're whining about how many days a response takes, the number of days actually do matter, lol.

    It's also important to understand why you got those days wrong, because you believed some partisan garbage you found on the internet without any critical thinking on your part. The only reason I could see anyone doing this is because throwing blame on Obama is more important to them then actually getting the facts straight. That tells everyone here alot about your motives and character.

    Thanks for admitting that you were wrong though.

    Sorry about all the whining, I guess I just think the truth is more important then you do. I can see why that would bug someone like you.

    a B?

    No booms? no mitigation? A B?


    You won't be saying that next week when your coastline is destroyed. Well actually you might, seems he can do no wrong.




    They were on top of it as soon as the explosion occurred. They treated it as a priority right from the beginning, even with the information that no oil was leaking. Really the only thing they have screwed up on is not having fire booms in place.

    no they didn't, that is incorrect. it was by your timeline 7 dayy for the federalis in the obama administration to take notice.

If the government gave you the rights to build on national forest, you would be on the hook for the costs of a fire if one occurred due to your negligence. Thats part of the agreement.

    Which is maybe .001% of the cost of cleaning this up. Once again, blame their lobbyists. That is only liability to fisherman though. They still have the cost of the cleanup on top of that.

    That's true. Obama wasn't being honest when he claimed BP would be paying for this.

    That is just the cost for losses to fisherman BP will have to pay. The cost of the dealing with the spill is still born by BP. BP will have to pay to cut off that oil well and so on.

    Hint: One of the duties of the Coast Guard is oil spill prevention and mitigation. You think they should pull out and leave it all to BP???

    If I've read accurately, BP is responsible, financially, for all of the cleanup, but as far as the damage it does to the coastline and fishing and residents and all, it's capped at 75 million.
