Really, what can President Obama say?

Years and years of de-regulation and soft-pedaling corporations lead to disaster each and every time.
Sure, they make money for a while, but, they need accountability and we need a serious study of Ethics in America.

Ethics does not necessarily wear a Brooks Brothers suit, aye?

Cut to the issue with greater precision: the Federal government did not respond to LA's request for sand burms which came immediately to protect their ecosystem. Every day that goes by beyond that request is a day that was not acted upon. Which part of Katrina II don't you get?

BP is completely incompetent and the fact that they're covering everything up just makes them more like the Bush Administration, who covered up all their incompetence.

Why hasn't anyone spoken about the production capacity of the well when talking about how muchoil is coming out? I mean how much oil was BP expecting to get? Doesn't it make sense that close to 100% of the oil is coming out?

Obama's comments on the Gulf oil disaster have grown increasingly ignorant with each passing day. Obama is disconnected from reality and doesn't have a clue at this point.

They are out to destroy him-both from the right and the HILLARY FEMINIST LEFT!

Hey, James Carville???

Do you think he'd ' HIGH-THROTTLE ' his mouth if this happened under a Hillary Clinton administration? Especially, since her husband had a pivotal role in much of what is wrong.

East Elmhurst...land of garbage on the ground.

I beg pause. Listen to the talk (the garbage speech-I won't use THAT WORD). The next generation - tattooed and ready...I think...they be...ugh...want to vomit.
