    I'll agree with the president, if he doesn't decide to shut down drilling in US waters.

    I won't hold it against him, drilling for oil offshore is a necessary evil. However with situations like the plan to build offshore sand berms to collect the oil, the choice by the Obama administration to allow the situation to become bogged down in bureaucratic morass (lets face it, legal briefs and arguments are firing back and forth rather than action taken at a critical time) is inexcusable. I hope that Jindal and Louisiana do as they are now talking about, going ahead and getting the ball rolling without federal permission, as it is already three weeks past the initial query.

    Here is an article about the situation, which IMO is chock full of examples of excuses and bureaucratic rationalizations for not taking this action. End of the day, excuses aside, it would have been far easier to clean up sand berms than wetlands, marshes and estuaries.

    I don't know what Palin was on about and I don't agree, there is no "gain" or upside for Obama or anyone here. Instead, this debacle has become illustrative of many of the flaws detractors of Obama speak about. Also quite seriously, one of the negative side effects of the environmental movement is now at work here. We have a government bogged down in regulatory considerations and fear of legal reprisals which are forestalling actual meaningful ACTIONS that could be taken to stem the literal tide of damage that has resulted from this horrible accident.

    I don't know, it seems to me that when it suits Barry's agenda, things move right along.... sometimes way too fast. So beings the administration is moving so slow on this, I have to assume that is intentional and it fits their agenda.
