Hmmm... Obama holds BP accountable for their failure in the Gulf. BP sets up $20 billion dollar escrow fund. Democratic Congressional Reps continue to investigate NBP failure and find out more information that uncovers BP's misleading statements to the public. What are the Republicans doing about this???
Apparently, the Republicans are too busy trying to score political points by blaming Obama for this mess. Even going so far as to apologize to BP for what they characterize as a 'Chicago Style Shakedown' and 'slush fund.' God forbid BP has to pay anything for this disaster, as that would divert funds away from Republican political campaign contributions.

Tax payers should pay for it. We Apologized to BP to the shakedown 20 billion recovery funds by Obama. We want " Drill Baby Drill" & "Spill Baby Spill".
Sorry no more Unemployment benefits for 1.6 million unemployed "HOBO" Americans. Unemployed Americans are lazy that is why they are unemployed. Who cares about those Gulf coast fisherman when we can turn them into oil drillers.

Bobby Jindal is grandstanding in front of television cameras taking interviews, and walking along shores in hard hats day after day. Oh yeah hes busy criticizing everyone else instead of taking his own huge share of the blame.
1.) It turns out Jindal has only bothered to deploy 1,100 out of 6,000 National Guard members to handle LA coastline.
It also was revealed that the state has called up only 1,100 of the 6,000 National Guard members authorized for the spill clean-up efforts.
2.) Also Jindal has yet to disperse the 25 - 40 Million in funds BP provided as a grant to assist LA immediately.
At a meeting Thursday with BP officials, coastal Louisiana legislators and representatives of the Jindal administration, it was disclosed that the state has spent only about $3 million of a $25 million BP grant for spill-related expenses, and that it has not yet issued a contract for BPs $15 million grant to promote tourism attractions threatened by the spill.
Not only have the Republicans openly criticized the President's response to this disaster, but they also appear hell bent to sabotage those cleanup efforts themselves.
