Obama's 6 month stoppage is to do what? Raise Gas prices?

The Maggot needs to get a clue and realize the BOP device needs significant redesign & on site Modifications which will take years.

Obama needs to actually REVIEW the Permit applications instead of giving categorical exemptions.

The Maggot Obama also needs to RE-INSTATE the Oil Rig Safety Inspections HE CUT last year.

Yes, on these highly reliable proven technologies (ha-ha) that are years away and do not employee anybody. Enjoy your Walmart job because that is all we will have.

Your Obama Tourettes is flaring up again. The President's name was mentioned in one paragraph on how oil rig workers may have to look for jobs and you go off on this rant about what the President should do.

How do you know he's not working on those very things? Are you on his team? If not, you're speculating or better yet, why don't you call him and advise him yourself. I'm sure you have the number on speed dial seeing as you seem to know what he is or isn't doing.

Are you too stupid to know that Obama's decision to stop drilling was the reason the Oil Rig workers are out of jobs.

Obama "Claims" he's been working on a Stimulus and Jobs Bill for years! He was a senator Pimpin' Stimulus checks and now a failing potus that Borrowed Trillions to buy essentially nothing and created no Jobs.

Obama = Failure.
Obama = Job Loss.

ANOTHER BONEHEAD MOVE BY OBLAMER, THE RECKING BALL
Obamaís Approval Rating on Handling the Spill Hits 40 Percent

June 07, 2010 10:31 PM
By Jim Geraghty

The latest numbers from Gallup arenít quite a crisis for the Obama administration, but they suggest one might be in the works:

"... By a six-point margin, more Americans disapprove than approve of President Barack Obamaís handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The presidentís 40 percent approval rating on the oil spill trails his overall job approval rating by seven points."

He campaigned as a problem solver and as Mr. Fix-It, and heís proving to be a failure.

In and of itself, the spill wouldnít be a presidency-defining problem. But when you place it alongside:

1- High unemployment
2- A lousy housing market
3- High foreclosure rate in much of the country.
4- A runaway deficit, even by the standards of our usual runaway deficits.
5- A stock market starting to slump more seriously 6- No sign of Iranís nuclear program slowing down 7- No serious consequence for North Korea sinking a South Korean ship.
8- Illegal or at least very smelly backroom deals involving executive-branch positions and Democratic senate primaries (BRIBES)
9- Daily reminders that the health-care legislation wonít live up to the hype
10- A series of near-misses on the war on terror, where large bureaucracies fail to intervene in time and only sharp-eyed and fast-acting citizens prevent terrible consequences
11- George Soros predicting a Double-Dip Recession

... well, it all starts to add up to a pattern. Obama = Incompetent and a Dangerous Failure

Those out of work oil rig guys need to be retrained in some green ecosystem and learn how to work on windmills and grow ethanol.

This oil spill could not have come at a better time for Obama, he will now be able to push thru his cap and trade with the same devasting results that his healthcare is about to render unto us.

Yes, they can thank Obama for being jobless, but hey... he somehow got 100 mil from BP to pay them.

Of course that won't stop for us having to suffer the consequences, we the people always do.

You're an idiot.

If anyone thinks this tragedy was not going to impact oil rig workers, that person is a fool.

We're all sorry for anyone being impacted, but make no mistake, we will be impacted. Workers may just be the first.

Even Jindal agrees with a pause in new oil drilling until the causes of this mess are uncovered, and resolved.

No one wants to risk any more of our resources, communities, and wetlands.

.$20 Billion relief funds to the Gulf Coast victims!

. When Americans are down, Obama comes to the rescue, again and again!

Limbaugh and GOP crooks characterize the $20 Billion rescue funds for Americans as "Slush Fund!"

Again and Again, GOP crooks side with Big Corporate One-World-Government over average Americans.

Tea-baggers are against average Americans.

Palin's Tea Party and Cheney allow Big-Corporate One-World-Government to destroy our ecosystems; when it's time to indemnify American victims, the crooks side against Americans.

I have a condo on the gulf which has been impacted, and I voted for Obama (a 1 br condo--no, I'm not rich)...but wind and solar? Really? hope you like eating your tofu at room temperature and in the dark. Cap and Trade will only compound the economic disaster we're in.

There is a measure of Bush's failure. It's called the Obama administration.
