So far, the press has given him a total, complete pass for his inept, casual response to the spill. Truly, is there ANY doubt what the press would be doing to Bush if he were reacting this way to the worst environmental disaster in decades?

James Carville Takes On Obama On Oil Spill: He's 'Risking Everything' With 'Go Along With BP Strategy'

Quote:
Carville, the famously outspoken Louisianian who was a chief political aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday that the administration's response to the spill has been "lackadaisical" and that Obama was "naive" to trust BP to manage the massive clean-up effort.

But crude oil has now been erupting into the Gulf of Mexico for over a month, and the sense that the Obama administration is treating the spill as an urgent national emergency has diminished even as the impact of the disaster has magnified. Not until yesterday, critics note, a full 30 days after the oil rig explosion, did federal officials establish a technical team to measure the full extent of the spill.

  1. HE'S A RACIST!
  2. IT'S BUSH'S FAULT!
There, now that that's out of the way we shouldn't be bothered by such statements for the rest of this topic, I hope.

Obama has shied away from the bad news so far but this time he has nowhere to run.
This is a disaster in the making right before our eyes.

Many dems including Carville, Pat Cadell etc are bashing Obama because they know he is destroying their party.

And he was correct, Obama's response to the spill has been yet another huge mistake.

Another case where something else was more important for him to do then what he should actually being doing at the time.

I have been saying he cannot make a good sound decision on anything and now even the dems are agreeing with ME!!!!



Let the bashing begin from the left, even they cannot stand the ONE TERM LAME QUACKING DUCK.

Quack Quack sounds like the new "Hope to Destroy" Obama saying.

Even once-stalwart supporters of Obama are starting to show cracks in their foundations of support Carville is just one. Chris Mathews has seemingly abandoned the tingle in his legs for a "scared" sensation in his heart over Obama.

Face it Obama is a weak, poser who is slowly revealing his weakness and lack of suitability for the office he holds to even his staunches once-supporters. It is going to be a frolicking good time to watch this whole national distraction unfold until 2012 when America pukes out (or, rather, dumps out) this POS

Obama has proven to all but his most idiotic and blind supporters that he's George Bush incarnate. Its Katrina all over again. Its as if he wants this disaster to get as bad as possible. At what point do we start sending the clean up bill to BO as well as BP?
But here's a question. Why not in the very early days of the spill, had they taken it seriously which they didn't, couldn't they have just dropped a large depth charge or launched a torpedo at the site and seal it off with a conventional explosion? No nuke, just one big bomb to destroy the pipe line and close it off. They could still do it.

Aren't these giant oil companies supposed to know what to do?

Don't they have the famous repug "personal responsibility" ?

Since repugs swear off-shore drilling is WONderful , why don't THEY go down there and help?...And HAPPILY ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES of OFF- SHORE DRILLING??

This is it...big leaks...love it or quit



AND why are they worried now? They didn't worry about the economy and the environment when Bush was in office....NOW they're so concerned....


is that Bi-Polar, psychotic...or just plain STUPID ?

The federal government should get out of the disaster business. Period.

They have proved time and again they are incapable of doing it.

In a yeear or so we will have some effin' committee and they will drag all these BP execs in and make them look like idiots in public. Then they will make excuses for the federal governments failure. Then they will pass some "reform" law. Then the next time something bi happens the feds will figure a way to make it worse than if they had never got involved in the first place. Then we will have some effin' commitee.......................

It never ends. Doesn't matter what party is in charge. The federal government is completely incapable of disaster relief. Always will be.

The quicler we accept that the quicker we can clean stuff like this oil spill up.

So true, they should get out of a whole bunch of things.
The arrogance of the federal government in Washington (mostly lawyers, no less ) thinking it can manage events from thousands of miles away, is astounding.
