Props to the trolls that kept pushing this BS. This is all Obama's fault. Drill Baby, Drill. And go fark yourself.

Make more laws against Mexicans.

send out the SWAT team...that's a BIG FARKN help.

/laughable at best

// the US had better get used to this being in the news for a few months cause it will be that long before the wellhead is capped.

///it will be a hot and crappy summer on the Gulf Coast

I'm really happy to see so many who care so passionately about this issue speak out about it.

I would have guessed many of you didn't care for environmental issues.

The Exxon-Valdez spill was caused by Exxon and a guy drinking on the job.

But this is all Obama because we're still cranky about Katrina.

So what exactly is Obama supposed to do, dive down and fix the spill himself? This came out of no where, everyone is doing everything they can to contain this, and BP has accepted full responsibility.
 
2010-04-30 10:57:50 PM  
In an apparent effort to make this "Obama's Katrina", both Hannity and Rush are lobbing accusations that this administration has done nothing about this for over a week, despite the fact that the Coast Guard was on it from day one. I wouldn't be surprised if that becomes the accepted narrative on the right.

This just in: The fed is as slow as Christmas coming to a 5-year-old when it comes to dealing with pretty much anything until it, sometimes literally, blows up in their face and gets their white shirts dirty... regardless of what partisan hack is currently in the White House.

"Last night officials from Louisiana and the U.S. government urged BP to commit more resources to clean up the oil spill"
"Meanwhile, the CEO of the British-based company said they would compensate all those affected by the oil."


BP should be sparing no expense to clean up this spill. Apparently they would rather pay damages after the fact rather than do everything possible to minimize the damage now. I live in NW Florida, that's my farkin' beach! Are they going to compensate everyone who was forced to swim in a sinkhole instead going to the beach?

I think it's telling that BP isn't even trying to spin this. Normally the lawyers and PR flaks would be out in full force right now, but this is such a colossal fark up that there's just no spinning it. I know the Fox Brigade is trying like mad to find some hook, but it just isn't there.

i don't know if i should find it refreshing, or saddening that it took a disaster of this magnitude for someone to cut out the bullshiat.

Republicans are desperate to pin this on Obama just like the failure of the Bush administration regarding Katrina. It's farking pathetic.

The real victims here are the people of the gulf coast because the LLL wouldn't let us drill for our independence in Yellowstone.

SouthernManDunWrong: send out the SWAT team...that's a BIG FARKN help.


OK, folks, time to break this down with small words for the Palin-Americans.


1. There are no SWAT teams. You're an idiot for mentioning them.

2. Bush wasn't responsible for Hurricane Katrina. However, as President, he was responsible for the agency that handled disaster relief, that being FEMA. He appointed a completely unqualified, incompetent jackass to lead the agency, thus making its flailing response HIS FAULT. Period.

3. The BP spill is directly attributable to BP's poor engineering (and even more directly to Halliburton) - BP is a private company, and thus Obama is not actually in charge of it, or responsible for its decision making. The only federal agency that is remotely qualified to help with mitigate this disaster is the Coast Guard, and they've been on things from the beginning.

To summarize, you're both idiots, and so are all your Fox News fellating ilk.

Also, we knew for years that the levies were vulnerable.

We knew for 2 weeks that Katrina was coming.

We knew 3 days in advance that the storm would track directly over New Orleans.

We knew the day before that Katrina was category 5.

There was just no excuse for any of the authorities not to be ready. I know FEMA couldn't predict the full extent of the disaster on the Gulf Coast, but they seemed to be completely caught off guard.

There's no such thing as "environmental issues" because Al Gore, that's why.

To think that humans can have an effect on the environment like that just shows how egotistical you are.

Ah the Daily Fail.

The headline has a quote of 'too slow to act against oil slick disaster'. There is no one criticizing him in the article. There is a vague reference to critics.

I will attribute this to quote then to the Daily Mail. I'm glad this British Petroleum Paper is so on the bal.
 
2010-05-01 01:00:12 AM  
They tried! They kept calling and calling Obama yelling SLICK! SLICK! but he just thought it was Bill Clinton looking for babes.
 
2010-05-01 01:00:39 AM  
DeRP!!!

How many lives have been lost due to the oil spill (not the initial explosion?) I fully expect the government to inflict heavy fines upon BP, unprecedented fines compared to Exxon. I do however, expect the disaster to be exacerbated and we will be without a cogent and sure solution for a month or even more (willing to bet subscription to TF.) If the situation becomes too dire, i expect a state of national emergency to be enacted and for an Obama presence on the Gulf Coast (and not a fly-over.)

Had he jumped all in BP's shiat like they're suggesting he should have it would have been, "Pinko Obama in anti-business shocker."

Yes, I do hate myself as much as I hate every other deserving asshole in the world. We're all and none of us responsible.

It sounds like your "Fartbama" just created a few thousand jobs near the Gulf of Mexico. Grab a bucket and start panning for oil guys!

Why do Republicans hate job creation?

The right continues to try to use all the stuff we said about Bush against Obama.

Since Hannity and Rush have already tried to pin this on Obama, I can guarantee that Bobby Jindahl will try to pin something on Obama, right after it's revealed ol' Bobby screwed the pooch on something.

I was channel surfing earlier and stopped on Fox news in time to catch Krauthammer or whatever his name is blaming regulation for this. You see, there is so much regulation and red tape it prevents oil companies from drilling in really viable locations so they have to move to risky, deep oil fields like this one to get around the government stranglehold.

The mental gymnastics to not only conceive of such a complaint but to it say it with a straight face is pretty impressive if nothing else.

The Gulf of Mexico put the fire out. The rig sank.
