    Mrs. "Drill baby drill!" is accusing the other guy of being in bed with big oil? Well, she's certainly not afraid to make an 4ss of herself, is she?

    Yes, lets make this about Palin. Why even discuss if Obama's admin should take over the spill. Palin is Palin, we get that the left hates her.

    The question is: Should the fed take over the spill. I feel they should, BP has had more then enough time to get things sorted and failed. This should not be a political issue, it needs to be taken care of.

    Even a broken watch is right twice a day. I agree that Obama has been negligent on "The Spill" and he can't make any excuses on it. This response has been negligent and naive and that's not what Obama voters were paying for. This guy has asked this country to swallow some huge piles of crap to save the corporations but he has never asked us to get behind ANY energy policy whatsoever and continues to suck up to the oil companies even as they destroy the Gulf Coast and who knows what next. He's done little to nothing about getting the message out on financial reform, which can't work anyways because campaign finance is getting worse every month, it seems.

    It's time for Obama supporters to wake the fu(k up and start making demands on his admin to face the multinationals and Wall Street and start throwing some peoiple in prison for this (and other) crap!

    Honestly, it's not even about blame right now. It's about getting the leak stopped. There will be plenty of time for blame later. They need to step in and do whatever it takes to get this under control.

    We all know it's only a question of when the feds step in, not if. The longer they wait, the worse the fall out is going to be.

    I agree that .gov should be aggressive in the cleanup although letting BP hang itself has been fun to watch in a sadistic kind of way. But Palin is absolutely a hypocrite and this is an obvious case of political posturing that pretends that her entire political ethos never happened. Does she really think people are as stupid as she is? Really? (Maybe she's right, judging by PF.)

    Agreed. But it would be useful to know why they haven't. There are dozens of other rigs out there that are at least as vulnerable to similar failure. I actually heard some nitwit on TV this weekend say that because this has happened that the likelihood of a recurrence is even less likely to repeat because of the law of averages. I'm concerned that there are morons in the administration who are equally as stupid as that guy was.

    I get no pleasure watching this disaster unfold. Lives are being ruined and untold damage is being done. It makes me nautious every time I see the oil spewing out...and still noting is being done to contain this mess.

    The problem I have is I don't trust BP to do the right thing. It seems to me that they are avoiding permanatly closeing the well so they can use it in the future. Even if that's not true and they are doing every thing possible it seems to me that there would be more options if the fed was involved.

    Call me crazy, but isn't this why we have the Federal Govenment in the first place.

    Job # one of the Fed, protect the citizins. EVERYTHING else is secondary.

    No kidding, there are idiots everywhere.

    Personally, I would think it would be more likely to have another issue. Same people, same companies, same equipment. IDK, if something is not right and nothing has been address wrt policy/procedure/equipment, how would it be less likely?

    Palin is in bed with whichever way the wind blows...

    One should more appropriately ask who received the 15.9 million dollars BP spent last year lobbying DC... Obama received 70K...

    The US does not have the technology or expertise to deal with this issue, the three companies involved Transocean, BP and Haliburton all supposedly have the resources...

    The US has every available asset they have available on the scene... compare to a nuclear melt down, if that happens do you want the Army to run in or do you want the experts to fix it...

    BP has been pooping the bed big time on this case.. and Palin is too busy playing Gotcha, the game she accuses others of playing..

    OBAMA should have every possible means that are at his disposal fighting this oil spill, he should ask for foreign assistance, he should ask Rev Wright to do some praying, those god damned scumsucking bastards in congress should all be working to try and stop this they are the phony rats that are always bleating the environment, where is that sh!t bag Al Gore, where is Sean Penn with the Camera he took down to Katrina, not a word from the Racist Black Caucus about the Spill.

    THIS ROTTEN F-CKING PRESIDENT SHOULD BE FIGHTING THIS OIL SPILL IT'S GETTING WORSE EVERY DAY ANIMALS ARE DYING FISH ARE DYING WHERE ARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL HAND WRINGERS IF BUSH WERE THE PRESIDENT AL GORE WOULD BE SETTING HIMSELF ON FIRE.

    WHY WON'T OBAMA SEND HELP WHY IS HE ALLOWING BP TO DO IT, OBAMA IS DESTROYING AMERICA
    OH JESUS CHRIST

    So if the fed took over Transocean, BP and Haliburton would not be allowed to assist? I would think the fed would call the shots using any and all resources available throughout the world (I'm pretty sure that not many would refuse to help).

    If this was about Bush...wait, didn't Obama blame Bush for this?

    This is a disaster. You can't leave private corperation to oversee something this big. Corperations don't have the publics best interest at heart. BP only worries about BP. The Fed needs to step in. End of story.

    Some of you guys crack me up. (And I'm sure you all know who you are.)

    There's one thread here where you're all yelling about the need for "smaller government," the need to "get government out of private industry," and "let business owner's alone," etc. etc.

    There's another thread where the same group is carrying on about, "People are only poor by choice," "Everyone's got the same opportunity," "If you can't make it on your own, don't think the government is supposed to help you."

    And then there's this one....."Where's the government?" "Why isn't the government getting more involved?" "Who's looking out for the people?"

    Aren't at least some of you the same people who just, two threads ago, threw poor people to the wolves - saying that people are responsible for themselves, that success or failure doesn't happen by chance, that the government bears no responsibility for the individual who can't take care of himself?

    Aren't you the same people who cry and carry on over the government daring to tell a private business owner who he can and can't serve? Forgive me for pointing this out, but a government who isn't allowed to tell a private business owner who to sell to or who to serve certainly isn't going to be a government in any position to tell a private company (such as BP) how to clean up it's mess, let alone order them to do itl.

    So - the question is - are the fishermen and tour boat owners and resort owners on the Louisiana coast responsible for the loss of their livelihood? Shouldn't the burden of "being prepared" fall on them alone since there is no place for big government or governmental interference in private business in your utopian small-government society?

    And if so, why are ya'all whining that Obama's not doing enough?

    Aside from a BP exec., Could there be a more innapropriate person to be registering a complaint about the governments realtionship with Big Oil? Palin supports will give her a pass I'm afraid and Obama administration supporters now have cover. Her big mouth has just given the administration all the deflection they need to marginalize this-See Gibbs' response. He made it all about Sarah...so far as the sound bites are showing anyway.

    This is not about Bush, he screwed enough up.. not sure what would happen if we "federalized" BP, Transocean or Haliburton if it would make a difference.. they are all on the hook for liability, sadly they do not have the resources to stop this disaster... if they took it over the resounding sounds of socialism would once again emerge..

    In case you missed it the US is there, but does not have the assets or resources to control this mess, the US is watching them... the gov't have to rely on others, if we could drop a bomb or depthcharge on it pretty confident that they would have tried it..

    If we had the assets and hesitated, it would all be on the Gov't.. but as we do not have the ability or knowledge to do much except oversee and coordinate the clean up.. from what I read BP has been lying since the onset and covering up the amount leaked..
