The response? Why is Obama dragging his feet? I thought G Bush was bad but Obama is the cream of the crop...

The Whale skimmer boat is not being allowed to work because the EPA wants to make sure that the quality of water thatís coming out of the other end meets their specifications. Well, wait a minute, itís taking in oil out of the water and putting water back out the other end. If the EPA wants to monitor while itís working where it could be improved and where techniques could be modified to get a better result that would be great, but to just hold it up and say theyíre doing testing to make sure the water thatís coming out on the clean end does indeed meet our specifications when itís 99% better than the water that went in on the front end -- thatís just nuts,Ē Burgess said.

Somehow it makes sense to the Obama administration.

Obama is definitely dragging his feet on this one, and no one getting anything accomplished. I found http://bpfixedtheleak.com/ has a pretty funny solution to the problem.

Honestly, this disaster will be felt for years to come in the Gulf region, and the longer we wait to fix it, the worse it will be.
