    Id certainly be happy with ONE...especially if it had to do with stopping the oil flow, adequately prosecuting the 'war' on terror in Afghanistan, combating unemployment, actually doing something to stop illegal immigration other than make baseless claims about state legislation he hasnt read, reducing the deficit, etc etc etc...

    Well, we know that the current CIC (clown in charge) can't do his job and play golf, at the same time.

    I guess you MISSED the part where i said FIX THE DISASTER FIRST, THEN make the responsible parties pay for it...

    No...of COURSE you didnt miss it but it wouldnt fit with your pithy, snippy comment.

    And then of course you compeltely ignored the 'spewing a barrel of oil a second' thing which obviously the housing crisis didnt do.

    So...I will take your asenine response and follow it to YOUR logical conclusion. George Bush should have told all those people to **** Off...hey...its the CITY's fault they didnt plan for their disaster. its the CITIZENS faults that they stayed there in the first damn place. Its Chocolate Ray's fault that he squandered the 12 million dollars in disaster planning funds and all he got out of it was a few cases of undistributed pamphlets. Its the La's governor and Nagins fault they didnt take proactive measures...so drown you pathetic bitches.

    So should Obama plug the leak personally or should he have engineers and stuff working on it and trying things?

    Personally...of course not. But since 'trying stuff' has equated to 4 attempts, NONE of which were designed to flat out stop the leak...then yes, I'd say they have not tried nearly enough.

    You GET of course that they lowered a 'collection' boom...attempted to clean cut and and install a new collection point, attempted a cap that would allow them to collect new oil, and now are drilling a relief well to collect the oil. 4 attempts...none of which were designed to bury that sonofabitch and call it a loss.

    Lets put this another way...are YOU satisified with the efforts they have made to stop the oil spill? a barrel of oil a second is pouring into the gulf. Its been 80+ days...are YOU satisfied with what BP has done to stop the leak? What BP has done to collect the oil? To stop it from spreading? And all under the direct orders of the One...since...you know...day one...he's been in charge.

    Right on brother

    No one told those people to live in New Orleans, they knew that a hurricane was a possiblity, that a big one would flood the city, that they should have gotten their buts out of NO, BEFORE the storm hit.

    Everyone knew that a blowout was a possibility for drilling, it occurs on land, and it occurs at sea. BP should have been prepared so should have everyone on the coast. The government should say/should have said you wanted drilling you live with the consequences, you wanted to live in NO, you live with the consequences.

    This sissy response of expecting the government to save people for their own choices is the going to be the downfall of the US. BP drilled, the people on the coast wanted BP to drill, why on earth should some one from Montana have to pay for the decisions people on the gulf coast's decisions

    You are kind of all over the place on this, arent you...

    The fed insisted that BP drill for oil at 5000 feet. Frankly, I think BP would rather drill closer to the coast...or for the huge deposits in Utah and Colorado, or Alaska, then at 5000 feet. Regardless...Ive NEVER...not once...suggested BP shouldnt pay for it. What I HAVE said is that instead of allowing 1 barrel of oil...86,400 barrels a day, and a total of 7 MILLION 344 THOUSAND barrels of oil to spill into the gulf coast, polluting Texas, La, Alabama, Florida, into the Key's, now up the Atlantic, and into lake Ponchetran...the priority should have been sealing the leak...get the **** out of the way, stop trying to save a well or collect the oil, and seal the leak. Period. We'll deal with putting BP into bankruptcy later...but first and foremost...stop the leak.

    And it isnt the people in Louisiana that want/need the oil. Unless Im mistaken, those people in Montana are also using fossil fuels...we all do. We all need it. and one way or another we are ALL going to pay for it. But first...you stop the oil flow. Then you go after BP. I dont care if you dump 300,000,000 cinder blocks on it, pipe in liquid glass, put the worlds biggest cork on a submarine and drive it straight into it or put Michelles fat ass in there (oh yes...dont think we have forgotten the boob belts...)...but you stop the leak. 4 tries in 85 days to find a way to recapture the oil and contain the flow isnt the same as trying any and every viable option to STOP the flow.
