White house silence speaks volume!
what a useless president!
no ability to respond quickly, decisively< courageously and willing to defend oil industry!
obama - you are a spineless coward and stupid! you are going to be hated for generations for doing nothing!
The bp engineers and management are the experts. Keep government out of it as far as rectifying this mess.
BP knows what they have do beter than anyone. They made it and intimately know the ingredients of the recipe. They may not know exactly how to put out the fire since this is the first day of school for everyone(I'll bet the first electrical fire was attempted to be put out with water) but they know more than most, if not all.
Unfortunately, they(a few someones) know what they SHOULD have been doing while they where performing the work.

Bush approved this.
Bush relaxed the rules.
I am not an Obama fan but this was in the works way before he took office.
Could he do more? You bet.
He has made every resource available. Has put fishermen and those who make their livelihood in the gulf to work on the cleanup. Has involved the military too. Seems to me everyone has acted with a high degree of urgency, as all should.
I think all parties have acted aggressively since the mishap. The problem is BP should have been as agressive in the pre- planning and actual implementation and oversight of their own work. They claimed prior to this event that they could handle cleanups much larger than what they are dealing with.
We are in unchartered waters and have to work together now to put the genie back in the bottle.
Heads will roll at BP(and elsewhere) no matter if we succeed or not. The unfolding of this is inexcusable.
this is the story by the media but not actually the case in the gulf there are very many fisherman that arent working and there boats sit idle fisherman do not have the capability of cleanup you are a fool to think what they are paying the fisherman to do will have any effect on the slick it is just good pr move that all
He should fly over it to a california fundraiser -- oh, no, wait -- that was the last idiot !
you tea party neocons want obama to captain a skimmer. The rest of us want him to fix the mess buss made out of the united states. We've got enough people doing stuff.
but if it's this tough to close a deep well, we should
