Boy, Obamaa and his centralized government team of socialist radicals, tax cheats, union thugs and criminals really BOTCHED this one! Will the liberal press blame them for the next decade like they're doing to Bush -- who responded FAR quicker and more effectively after the Katrina disaster???

Maybe Obama should spend less time campaigning and playing golf and b-ball, and more time being a president?

It is amazing that he is out fundraising as we are having the worst environmental disaster in decades. Amazing. I do not believe a word this smooth talker says. If I was a someone in the gulf that makes a living off of the gulf, I would be livid! BP should pay billions to all those affected and for cleanup. B I LL I O N S.

It's not the "gulf" oil spill." It's the BP oil spill.

As i said drill baby drill, this is all Obama's fault, he over regulates, the oil Co. are not evil, they need to be left alone to drill, oil is natural stuff it goes away look how clean the Exxon Valdez mess has gotten, & I can see Russia from my house.....

Yes, Steve. Funny how the media is trying to take the limelight off of BP by always calling it the "Gulf" oil spill. Very crafty.

All these folks attacking Obama, pull uer heads out of your Glen Beckian arse, the BP rig was approved by Dubya & rushed thru w/o regulatory & energency plans under BUSH CHENEY!!! Hey I know its Obama fault, no the cleanup skrew up can be pointed @ him but not the spill/blowout, BP has a history of this, they had the largest spill on land near their North Slope Alaska fields, BP engineers ignored warnings, & when they FINALLY wnet to check the pipeline a mega spill, polluting the Deadhorse field area, oh that was Obama too as it happened in 2oo7!! Oil is messy stuff, we are destroyong the planet with our gluttony, BP cannot be trusted & Obama seems to trust them alot for a 'liberal' environmentalizt POTUS.....If I had won...oh never mind, got to picl up my Corvair & to Bureaucratic Mess, take off your blinders, remember Brownie's doing a great job & it took Dubya months to really get on it because of the "liberal press" & he was busy choking on a pretzel or holding King Saud's hand.....We all lose here, this shouuld be apolitical, there is plenty of blame!!!

Interesting that it’s only after the worst oil spill in American history did an internal interior department report discovered that MMS agents have been accepting tickets to sporting events, lunches and other gifts from oil and gas companies. And only during the Bush years did these questionable acts occurred, the report found. But the oil spill did not occur during the Bush administration. It occurred during obama watch, and obama has the nerve to blame Bush for something that happen during his watch. Is this despicable? When is it going to stop being Bush’s fault when obama’s fails and when is obama going to take responsibility for his own stupidity?

You are an idiot. It is Bushits fault. He allowed "President" Cheney's lack of oversight and regulation of the oil companies, which allowed this disaster to occur. I almost forgot to mention Cheney's sheer greed and arrogance, which also contributed. And who dropped the ball on cleaning up the mess? Why it was Halliburton, BP and Transocean, of course. It's not the governments job to clean up the mess. It was their job not to allow it to occur in the first place. Obviously, Bushit and Cheney were too busy for that with their illegal war for oil in Iraq. Now turn off Glenn Beck and get a job.

Hey dude, the well & lack of regulatory controls was approved, pushed & sponsored by Dubya/Cheny & Halliburton, so blame Obmama, thats fine, the blowout not really his fault, the mess up in the klean up, yes the administration is not apparently ahead of the ball, they are letting bP run the show & we can see how well that works in shutting this well down.....maybe plug the hole w/pretzels & choke the oil down...

Of course the drooling libs find a way to Blame Bush.

Sorry, Karl Marx, Obummer is POTUS now. Where was he and his highly paid vacationing administration of tax cheats, radicals and criminals when this thing began to leak ... offering Sestak a job in the administration in exchange for not running for office??? Bowing deeply to kiss the feet of the Saudi Arabian kind?

BP didn't build this pump -- they lease it, Numbnuts.

Oh yeah, Americans are "gluttons" and the rest of the world are a bunch of Angels, right? I take it that you never use electricity (so what are you doing online?) and that you ride a horse or a tricycle to work? I guess you only bathe once per month to conserve water? You only eat brocolli, which you grow in your backyard with toilet water and your own manure?

You liberals are the most pathetic hypocrites.

You need to give that crack pipe of yours a rest and wakeup to reality. Here’s a news flash for you “Bush & Cheney are no longer in the White House”. Your precious savior obama-dumbest a ss is the one who hired Ken Salzar to head the DOI and Elizabeth Birnbaum to head MMS. And you really got to stop smoking the crack of yours because I cant understand the rest of your childlike sentences. Or maybe your just retarded?

I can't help it if you are too stupid to understand what I wrote. If you want to see a crackhead, then I suggest you look in the mirror, unless you're too busy jacking off to pictures of Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin to find one. What a dimwit!
