    Riiight. And heres the REALLY cool part...we have ONE LINE from the guy who issued the policy stating its a safety problem...without addressing just what the safety problem is, how it is a problem, to whim, in what capacity...and IMMEDIATELY we have at least 4 people (safety experts dontcha know...) chiming in here, jumping in AFFIRMING...uh huh...yep...thats what it is...its a SAFETY risk. You bet...thats what he said...right there...its a safety risk...because safety is important...and...safe...and you cant be all rerporting and be unsafe...it...it wouldnt be safe. And thats why...because its a SAFETY issue...

    What I find shocking, is how this spill is a disaster, and we here are calling for an all hands on deck approach, yet, these same people who chided bush's response to Katrina are actually defending some of the delay this administration is responsible for..... It's amazing....

    AFAIK they entered into the lease on their own free will, most likely in a free biding process.

    No one forced them anywhere. They could have gone anywhere in the world and entered into any lease with an agreeable lessor.

    This isn't on the front page of every major newspaper in the U.S.? This isn't on the nightly and 24 hour cable news?

    I've seen several polls that show a majority disapproves of how President Barack Obama has handled the devastating Gulf oil spill. The word devastating is the exact word used in one poll article I saw. Not exactly Obama friendly don't you think. They could have left it out and conveyed the same message.
    Durn Liburl Media...

    There's almost 7 billion people on this planet and, aside from drilling a relief well, NOT ONE has come up with a way to stop this leak.

    Though it is encouraging that you think so highly of President Obama that you would have the expectation that he would be the one to come up with a solution...

    That's exactly what they're going to do, now. They're going overseas and taking hundreds of thousands of jobs with them.
