History has been that gas prices "shoot up" prior to the Labor Day Weekend. Since this was not happening, nothing like a good explosion to convince the "market".

I wonder how many vacations Obama will take after he says that he will not rest until this one is plugged.

are you kidding, people can barely afford gas as it is and any more tweaking to the oil market will blow up in their faces. (no pun intended)

This is why we need to get rid of the moratorium on new drilling and to make sure to relax all regulation.

We should start a movement. We can call it the Texas Tea Party!

With the older rigs exploding, we simply must lift any moratorium and begin drilling new ones as quickly as we can in as many places as exist. In order to do this, those of us in the Texas Tea Party urge Congress to lift any and all environmental and safety rules. These explosions are acts of God telling us to drill, baby, drill! No one is responsible for what God wants! Congress must waste no energy trying to hold anyone accountable.

Exempting these companies from any responsibilty for environmental damage or safety regulations is the most ridiculous idea I've ever heard. You cannot be serious.

Okay, I'll admit I have a warped sense of humor. Still, I was seriously expecting at least one Tea Party type to agree. Isn't that what they were saying should have happened the last time?
