The disastrous 8 years of the Bush presidency turn this entire nation into a dump. The Gulf oil disaster is just one of the many results of the Bush years; from 9-11, to the economy tanking, to the Iraq lie, to this Gulf oil crisis… Bush’s failed presidency will haunt this country for generations.

This is so sad...will our Florida ever be the same again?

Will any of the Gulf states recuperate from this?

The suffering wildlife, the livelihoods of thousands, the reefs, marshes, and beaches...all lost for oil.

I don't understand why BP didn't have a plan in place should there be a failure. Was this another Titanic?

BP has destroyed and entire Gulf.
What do they care?
Their beaches are an ocean away
and remain pristine. Perhaps
they are punishing us for our
secession over 200 years ago.

Can't wait to see how we punish
them back.

Obama loses the Left: suddenly, it's cool to bash Barack
Europe still worships him and Washington's Obamatrons remain smitten, but former supporters are turning on the President, writes Toby Harnden.

This is what the liberals are all about,
creating crisis and catastrophes.

Liberals are a complete 180 to what they preach.

One thing they are honest about is they are committed to perpetuate crime in this country.
In fact they encourage it.

Take the illegal Mexicans as ONLY one example.
They know it is a crime for Mexicans to stampeede across the borders. Yet, liberals encourage them to break federal, State and local laws.

Liberals know that illegal Mexicans murder 1000 American citizens every year.

Liberals know that illegal Mexicans rape and sodomize countless American children every year.

Liberals know that that illegal Mexicans commit property crimes to the tune of billions of dollars ever year.

Reading these posts, I can't help but to take notice of the bitter and accusatory tone. Take for instance the 'conservative' response to the hazards of oil exploration, which is to cite how much the United States depends on petrol products. True enough, but instead of sensible solutions that lead us away from a petrol economy, the only answer conservatives have is to further exploit an already finite supply; leaving the inevitable crash to their grandchildren. Nevermind raising the topic of being more efficient with our use of petrol products. They have no time for higher CAFE standards, or luxury taxes on vehicles that burn fuel at twice the rate of economy automobiles. Why inconvience themselves? Thier only answer is,'Drill baby, drill!' Well I say we hunt down evey last person holding this view and dump a 55 gallon drum of BP crude in their backyard.

Liberals this, liberals that; blah, blah, blah! The term liberals, as used by supposed conservatives, has come to encompass anybody that doesn't ahere strictly to the world view espoused by that individual. A classic symptom of those worshipping daily at the alter of talk-radio.

Seventeen days after the oil spill Governor Jindal had to get on national TV and scream at the president to get him to act. His action was to order a commission to explore what had gone wrong on the oil platform...no booms, skimmers, vacuums, and, most importantly, no artificial barrier reefs or sand bars. Those sand bars were under review by the Amry Corps of Engineers and had been for two weeks.

James Carville had to get on national TV and scream “Mr. President you need to get back down here.” Odummy went back to Louisiana shook a few hands and picked up tar balls on the beach…one more photo op. Next, he sent Attorney General Clueless down to see if BP could be charged with any felonies.

Forty seven days since the explosion and we are just now seeing needed equipment arrive in this part of the Gulf.

Why is it that the American people have to kick this president in the ass to get him to act? Answer: He is a pseudo academic who has surrounded himself with people who have no experience in the real world. They're all paralyzed. Practical actions are foreign to these people; they don’t have enough common sense to walk and chew gum at the same time.

This is what America voted for. I hope they’re getting their money’s worth.

Fair enough. At the onset of the ecological disaster, every last oil spill crew & device should have been activated by federal contract and sent to the scene for containment efforts. I'll give you that. Yes we should expect more from our Presidents.

For instance, it should'nt have taken three years of bloody back & forth combat for President Bush to realize that Secretary Rumsfeld was wholly incapable of waging a Counter Insurgency Campaign(COIN). It shouldn't have take a resounding electoral defeat in 2006 for President Bush to relieve the SecDef of command and appoint somebody better suited for the task at hand.

That two opposing ideological mindsets elected leaders incapable of forethought in emergency response suggests that the peoples of this country are the root of the problem. Or at least their decision making process when it comes to electing persons to the highest Executive office in the land.

Reading your post you have no concept of what it would encompass to change from oil anytime in the next 25 to 50 years........give us an example and remember, battery cars are not practicle, nor natural gas, not atomic, not koolaid..........so what is your solution?

The answer to this question was self-evident in my original post. Efficiency is the first course of action. During the oil crisis in President Carters term, the national speed limit was lowered to 55mph on the basis that travelling at a slower rate consumes less fuel. With the national speed limit now 70mph, vehicles routinely cruise at 80-90mph; extremely wasteful when one considers the cumulative inefficiency given some +100 million Americans on the roads. This is one of many possible actions to enact in a massive conservation program.

FYI: I am only opposed to the further exploitation of undeveloped crude oil when it is not directly linked to a conservation and alternative energy plan.

CORRECTION: The 55mph national speed limit was enacted in 1973.

Republicans don't want to admit that crime rates for immigrants are lower than for American citizens. Republicans just hate freedom.

Ok, and don't forget to put the proper air level in the tires as Obama's only suggestion to ending oil dependence. I notice nothing about drilling with 300 years of oil still on american soil or just off shore. We don't need to drill a mile down.
