Obama never should have cut oil rig inspections and been such an Oil Shill by taking so much of their money.

Obama shouldn't have tried to cover up the real Oil spill estimates. It makes his Oil Shill money look that much more damaging.

If only Obama had listened to the Federal Judge in April of 2009 that ordered Offshore Oil drilling stopped until Obama could came up with a legitimate oil spill plan...

Obama's not a very good listener and had the decision reversed...

The Rest is Oil Spill History.

Why wasn't Obama ready to execute the previous oil spill "Burn" plan when this happened? Was he too busy? Didn't Gibbs say "this was just another spill. Happens all the time"

Largest Oil Spill in US History and no new technology to stop it. A Federal Judge ruled it is not safe in April 2009.

The oil rig caught on fire but the Coast Guard didn't know how to put it out without sinking the rig, breaking the pipe a mile below.

The blow out preventer didn't work and is not reliable as the Only Real Safety Device.

How do you claim it's safe?

Obama did not cut inspections. Inspections continued at the same rate that the Bush energy plan had set up. You remember the Bush energy plan don't you. The one he had the oil producers write for him. The plan that is still in effect today.

You complain because he did not shut down all offshore drilling and then you complain when he wanted to shut down just 30 deep water wells. The only consistency in your posts is if Obama did it you will complain about it no matter what it is.

We all know that there were safety problems onboard the Deep Water Horizon. Are you saying that offshore drilling is not safe?

YES HE DID.

... MMS’s new slimmed down approach to inspections was a brand new set of responsibilities for the agency – renewable energy development under the Obama administration’s commitment of to developing green energy.

While modest resources were devoted to renewable energy before Obama came in, the President’s new people at MMS got $21 million for programs (with a small bump this year) that would “enable MMS to further identify and address any major challenges to issuing commercial leases for generation of renewable energy by increasing its visibility and accessibility to major stakeholders.” Basically, an agency focused on fossil fuel resources – you know,“minerals”– is now spending tens of millions of dollars to get into things like tidal or wind energy – sort of like the turbines approved to be built off Cape Cod earlier in the week.

This is a classic example of bureaucratic ‘mission creep’ where a new responsbility (and a bigger budget) is sought out by a government entity, while core responsibilities wither on the vine because they aren’t the hot new thing. An agency which may not have been doing a stupendous job in its main areas of concern decides to focus its attention on something cool and new, like green energy.

I POINTED OUT THE FACT THAT A FEDERAL JUDGE STOPPED OBAMA.

What did Obama do when this happened 1 YEAR BEFORE THE OIL SPILL?

Obama had the decision overturned! Try to get something right.

M7M was operatnga five year plan that started in 2006. do the math and tell me when an obama plan can take over. If you watch the news you will see there is a lot of discussion over a Bush Tax plan that went into effect ten years ago and is only now up for any changes. Most of these budgets are not renewed every year. They are set up on 5 and 10 year programs.

Ask President Obama "Why unmarked planes were spraying aerosal oil dispersant Corexit 9500 over residential areas, US Citizen's backyards and directly over sensitive protected wildlife habitats?" during this meeting for me.
Why were wildlife carcasses hidden from the press and shipped to private dumping locations in refrigerated vans and trucks? Was it to protect BP from fines for killing the majority of mammals in the Gulf?
People involved and living in the affected disaster areas are sick, ill, fatigued directly from this disaster's "Clean Up".
Read the warning labels on the Nalco Corexit oil dispersant used in multi-miliions of gallons on the surface, air, and underwater at the wellheads.
This product causes internal bleeding, cancer and leukemia to humans and other mammals.If this oil/Corexit combination killed sea life and birds, why won't it also do the same to humans?

What was the real motive for this massive large scale "Clean Up" of spraying millions of gallons of Nalco's Chicago made poison? How much did Nalco and BP proffit from selling Corexit for this operation? Nalco is a publicly traded stock on the NYSE and Chicago stock exchanges owned by many of the top Illuminati and Bilderberg members. Do your research. It's all about corporate proffit and eliminating SS benefitiaries and fulfillment of the United Nation's Agenda 21.

The Gulf resident's corpses are starting to pile up at your desk, Mr. Obama. Atopsies are being conducted of the poisoned United States Citizens. You yourself set this BP/Coast Guard Gulf Clean Up into motion, Mr. President.The US Coast Guard and FAA gave the mercenary planes airspace permission to conduct Corexit spraying operations over coastal land, waterways, and residential areas.I never thought I would live to see such a massive treason of the American People. May God help us all.
