It's time we had some. Some oil in the gulf is the end of the world? Not hardly.

Sure, it's a bad thing. Fishing and tourism will suffer. On the other hand, problems spur research, and we learn things to help out next time. Learning is important when the world isn't ending tomorrow.

BP has managed to come across in a less than favorable light, as they probably should. That doesn't mean the government can do any better. Obama has promised to get the finest minds in government working on ways to plug the leak. He also claims that "from the moment this disaster began, the federal government has been in charge"

I don't know how Barry O thinks the world works, but being involved with the federal government doesn't add a thing to somebody's IQ. The world's finest oil drilling minds are gainfully employed. Any of them who happened not to be have been getting calls from BP for the last month or so. And if the government has such great people working for them, why haven't they had things under control since day one?

BP is doing anything they can to stop hemorrhaging money. That's how capitalism works.

Accidents happen. Mistakes are made. Things don't always go as planned. Not every decision is perfect. That's how life works. If you don't think so then you need to get out more.


  1. But, doesn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside that the Chosen One has the finest minds in government (let's see there's Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, the "wise Latina" Sonya Sotomeyor, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Barney Frank...yeah, all brilliant people) working on this problem from day one?

  2. Haha, no, but it does explain a lot.

  3. Couldn't have said it better myself. It sucks that BP was stupid and made the mess in the first place, but at least they are going to stick around and clean it up.
