    I don't think Ron Paul said President Obama doesn't deserve any blame, but rather all the blame he is getting is unjustified. Paul said that the President could have done more after the spill happened, but the idea the American people have that the President can do everything is why he doesn't deserve all the blame.

    Which regulations would those be?

    Re: Ron Paul: Obama facing too much blame on oil spill

    Paul is right here. Blaming Obama for something that is clearly BP's responsibility (and BP's responsibility to fix) is just another instance of government-worship. People are so obsessed with the idea that the president can fix anything and that the government should handle everything, that even when an issue clearly is the complete and total responsibility of the private sector, they bash the president. Maybe instead of bashing Obama for "doing nothing" we should be grateful that the man has decided not to overstep his bounds and place the responsibility and cost of the leak on the tax payer.

    In all fairness, BP itself is having trouble coming up with ways to seal the leak so saying to someone else that they have no right to criticize because they have no solution is what's "hilarious". I don't think anyone blames Obama for the actual spill, but he can certainly cut through the red tape!! Speaking of solutions, you offered none either. What would be yours???

    Re: Ron Paul: Obama facing too much blame on oil spill

    I do think Obama is getting too much criticism. Not that he doesn't deserve a fair amount, but I think it is a bit over blown how much criticism he's getting, primarily from those on the right and right wing political outlets.

    That said, I thought Bush got far too much of the criticism and blame for Katrina as well even though he did deserve a fair amount. It too was massively overblown primarily by those on the left and by most of the left leaning media outlets.

    While I would say Bush was a bit bigger of an issues than Obama's, I also think there were far more guilty government parties in Bush's case then there are in Obama's. In both cases I think they reacted a bit poorly in their public presentation of it, both with Obama manipulating it to take even more political shots and jabs at the Bush Administration and trying to play the blame game as he's been doing for his entire Presidency and Bush with his "Browne" comments and unintelligent public presentation by remaining at his ranch.
