Hey GW. To blame Obama for your relaxed regulations only proves what an idiot you truly are.

Everyone needs to wake up to the fact that these so-called "brilliant" minds are a bunch of bumbling knuckleheads. Politicians are in the same category. You can't expect to apply statistics to a situation like this and come up smelling like roses. BP riolled the dice at our expense and have failed miserably. The US government has failed miserably. What is it going to take for people everywhere to understand that you can't "clean up" an oil spill without severe environmental consequences. We"re a pathetic and selfish little species and deserve to reap what we've sown. As custodians of this beautiful planet we seriously need to readdress our priorities immediately before it's really too late.

Obamaís incompetence reaches new heights


Iíve never fallen under the delusion that Obama had his priorities straight, but this latest incident provides evidence of the unforeseen levels of his incompetence.

I understand that Obama is beholden to Homosexual Lobby for their massive campaign contributions and we expect him to try push their agenda.

And when it took Obama and his cronies two weeks to remember where they put the 100-ton containment box designed to control the oil spewing in the gulf, I wasnít too surprised.

But when Obama chose his alliance with the Homosexual Lobby over containing this environmental disaster, I was speechless.

You see, Dr. Jonathan Katz was hired as part of think tank to resolve the oil spill crisis, but was fired for an article written against homosexuality over a decade ago.

Now, I understand that itís Obamaís decision on who is hired for this job. But think about it for a minute.

Dr. Katz is obviously competent, being a professor of astrophysics.

He was hired as a consultant to resolve a crisis, not hold public office. And itís a crisis with the potential to cost the surrounding gulf industries billions upon billions of dollars, not to mention the devastation it will cause to sea life.

So why was this highly qualified individual fired?

Because of a non-related article advocating his beliefs on the immorality and dangers of homosexuality.

Obamaís priorities?

Yeah, he has them.

But itís clear the Homosexual Lobby ranks higher on the list than the livelihood of the millions who depend on Gulf of Mexico.

Obamaís competency?

Well, thereís not much doubt left in my mind.

Sincerely,

Eugene Delgaudio

We would like to think that the Homosexual Lobby would have plenty of ideas on how to "plug a hole". Is the leak male or female. Should they use a giant penis or a giant tounge. har har har.

Are you simple minded. What natural disaster. This was a failure of regulation. This was a natural consequence of treating companies as people with more rights than you have.

Sheesh. Get a life.
