    Well today was certainly a bit of a setback. Not exactly back to square one, but sort of that direction...

    Well, all of that came undone because Obama let go of McChrystal.
    If he had just kept him around - this spill wouldn't be unraveling more and more.

    It's all Obama's fault.

    Unfortunately there is little more Obama can do to fix this mess created by deregulation and private sector recklessness. So many other issues are important and the president is busy dealing with lots of other issues. However I believe he can keep the "boot" on BP to fix the situation. BP is reacting correctly by accepting responsibility which is surprising considering Exxon Valdese spill. The real problem is republicans attacking the presedent because he is holding BP responsible. These ridiculous requests for more offshore drilling despite the fact that oil companies can't deal with these sorts of disasters so deep in the oceans. The moratorium is completely appropriate and big oil will just have to suck it up and move their rigs till they develop technology that can deal with this sort of problem effectively. Further the other oil companies involved with this mess should be accepting financial responsibility as well. These are not poor companies and they are all responsible for this mess. The other oil companies who were profiting from this should have financial culpability to the people of the gulf.
