Now that America has been "saved" by Sarah and her hi-jacked tea party lets review their right wing record of radical "Hell No You Can't"

Since Democrats won a landslide and Democrats Fixed Veterans Needs and Passed Heath Care and Democrats Forced Financial Reform Debate.

Sarah and the "TeaBagRepublicans" gave us:
1. A Fake Plumber,
2. Fake Death Panels
3. Fake RNC Tax Reporting
4. Fake Support For The President In War Time
5. Fake Climate Change Support
6. Fake Arizona Border Security
And Offered Drill Baby Drill Leading To The Worst Environmental Disaster Maybe Ever In The Gulf Of Mexico

At That Rate America Will Not Need Enemies or Illegal Aliens or Marxists or Socialists or Liberals or Wall Street Greed To Destroy America.
Sarah and her Rightwing Wrecking Crew are doing just fine thank you.

Our love of, and greed for, oil not only finances terrorism worldwide, causes countless other problems, but now it threatens our shores.

"This year’s SAFE Awards Luncheon, scheduled during next week’s OTC, has been postponed due to the ongoing Deepwater Horizon incident.

Oh, by the way, among the 2010 SAFE Award finalists: BP Exploration & Production Inc.

Just sayin’.

The President promised today to send Department of the Interior “SWAT teams” offshore “to investigate oil rigs”.

For years, the MMS has had an active inspection program for drilling rigs and production platforms. Violators may receive “warning INCs”(for Incident of Non-Compliance) for minor technical violations to civil penalties for more serious violations of the regulations.

For FY 2010, Congress directed MMS to raise $10 million from operators by, for the first time, charging a fee for inspections. Fees range from $2,000 to $6,000 per platform.Our small company had an overnight effective tax increase of $25,000.

So, this spectacle of the government suddenly acting as if all that is needed is “more inspection” is pretty much what I was expecting."

Ahhh I was wondering when libs like Breaking News were going to slither out of their hole and start blaming George Bush, Palin, tea partiers, and conservatives for the oil spill just like Katrina. Breaking News! The republicans have been completely out of power for almost 2 years! Where is the anointed one? Can't he lower the sea level for a quick clean up? And if I remember, the leader of your regime just ordered "drill baby! Drill!" a couple of weeks ago! You libs are hopeless.

You need a giant TIN CAN surrounding the spill
also from now on a few things need to be installed to keep it from happening again
valves...
3 valves in all down the line to stop this ever happening again

I am not sure if this works 100% but it is the safest most sensible way to clean up the spill. I don't live on the coast but I think officials should give it a try.
