No just someone who did a bit more work and paid more attention in their history classes than you did obviously.
This is going to ruin the Administrations whole year,looks like BP warned the Feds (MMS) 6 weeks prior to the explosion that there were serious problems,http://hotair.com/archives/2010/06/19/bp-disast...
I'm trying...No, really, I'm trying to decipher the coherency about the Dems saving the economy... and cleaning up, uh, what mess? Could it be the "mess" that resulted when Pres. Bush said that he was abandoning free market principles to save the free market? Yeah... that was definitely dumb... dumb... dumb... See how honest Reagan conservatives can be? Now, how about a little honesty from acolytes of "Lenin-wanna-be" Obama... something along the lines that Obama is a Soros puppet and a "Center For American Progress" lackey. Yeah... that would be a GREAT place to start "truthifying" about scholar-in-chief Obama, wouldn't it? And you can end it with the historical reality that transformer-in-chief Obama has ALSO made economic servitude certain for his two daughters and ALL of America's children. Yeah... why don't you start "truthifying" about Obama's own two daughters on their own "road to serfdom" as a result of Obama's "transforming" America into his 21st century "Lenin-wanna-be" image?Art STOP! Islamization Of America
Actually, you Dems have been in control of the national purse strings since 2006, and the current economic policies the dems and Obama are pursuing didn't work for Wilson or FDR. Nice try though at least you Dems are consistent.
Actually the Feds told BP and others they could NOT drill on the continental shelf,that includes the coastal waters of Louisiana. Overruling the state of Louisiana. Deepwater Horizon began drilling at the site in February 2010, that would put all permits and safety inspections squarely in the lap of...(wait for it)..The Democratic Administration!
While thousands and thousands of Americans suffer due to BP's negligence I just don't understand what has happened to the unity of the American Institutions. Our so called political leaders have taken to the air waves to promote politics using this economic and ecological disaster as a backdrop.America, I really don't care what party you belong to, I don't care what your specific politics are, and I really don't care what your economic status in this country is; we are all Americans and we should stand together and aid our fellow Americans in any and everyway possible.We must take all these veteran politicians in Washington, our state capitols, and in our city governments and send them packing. These political veterans have done nothing but currupted our system of government. Our government actions are no longer based on what is good for the people, but actually what is good for me and the lobbyist (Companies) I really represent. Kick all of these S.O.B. out of office, stop politicians from taking any money from lobbyist, ban all ex-government employees/politicians for ten years from lobbying any current legislator/ administrator/ employee that are currently in office, and also attach serious criminal penalties for breaking this type of law.If we don't straighten out our corrupt politicians and their staffs there is no hope for America's future.
No, the economy is the result of the Bush administration and general GOP policies. And bad things that happen when Dems are in power are quite often the result of Dem policies and choices. Like not clearing out the MMS staffers right from the get go and reviewing all oil well leases in the Gulf and related procedures. That was this administration's poor decision (or lack of decision) and they are suffering for it politically as they should. But to blame Dems for the almost sheer collapse of the financial industry is over the top. De-regulating the derivatives market, and allowing a firms to bet against the loans they were making and allowing them to buy and sell insurance on the debt----thats all GOP baby. Just be glad McCain didn't win the election---he would be freaking out man!
oh so the dems are who we have to thank for the general lackluster economy... because we all know that they own their issues... oh wait when something bad happens that the dems are in power for its NEVER their fault, I forgot. Hopeless
Soon I hope. I want to hear all about the sex/drug parties that former President Cheney put together there.
wow...denying all responsibility again--typical GOP. Looks like the Dems will have to clean up another republican mess.and you're welcome for the Dems saving the economy after the Bush job...no, really..you're welcome.
Keep up: the GOP called it a "natural" disaster in their statement yesterday (apologizing for the apology). See Boner, Cantor and Pence. and the government didn't cause this manmade disaster either. and please don't use Palin logic--it burns me eyes...Louisiana will allow drilling right up to the waterline. they were drilling there because thats where the oil is (see the Gulf of Mexico for evidence of that).
Why does the left have faith in goverment regulation. Reg. made them drill in the worst posible place but didn't enforce reg. to do so safely. Reg. wouldn;t let us accept help, burn off, lay boom, build burms and now the reg. have shut down the skimmers ect.ect.ect./ but if we only had more goverment regulation. How do these people get throgh the day without permisson and directions from the goverment.
You're welcome, party of windmills...No, really, you're welcome... ... but you're beef is with scholar-in-chief-Obama and the Obama administration that gave BP a passing grade 12 seconds before the accident... of course, "12 seconds" is an exaggeration, used simply to make the point that Obama signed off on BP, one of Obama's biggest doners.Art
What are you talking about???? Earth to skinmachine??? I think it is near unanimous that this is not a natural disaster but a manmade one caused by an inept government telling an oil company that they cannot drill closer to shore so they must drill where it is at a much higher risk. This is not a Republican "party of oil" issue, but a national one. However the GOP is not in power, the OTHER party is so it is up to THEM to fix it. Get your facts straight.
Thanks party of oil...we need money down here in a hurry. We cannot afford to wait 20 years like after Valdez.So its "Drill, Baby, Drill"...but then when they deregulate and cut corners, its a "natural disaster".Really?!?
Barton yes... Boehner no...Barton stay... Boehner go...Bartons said absolutely nothing to apologize for... 'cause a shakedown for political gain is a shakedown. Barton spoke in even tones, sounding calm and coherent... and simply said what many right thinking constitutional republic Americans believe... Obama strongarmed BP... EXACTLY as he strongarmed GM... WITHOUT constitutional authority.Where's the rest of the House and Senate in denouncing Obama's Chicago style shakedown and strongarming of BP... and GM... and AIG... and Wells Fargo... and.Boehner has got to go, and removed from the leadership. He caves... he goes along to get along... in the same way that Republican Minority Leader Robert Michel did when he was the minority leader from 1981 when Democrat Tip O'Neill was Speaker, through Speaker Jim Wright and ending with Speaker Tom Foley in 1995.Michel was Minority Leader almost 15 years... going along to get along... and playing golf.Rep. Boehner doesn't stand by fellow Congressman, Barton... instead he chastises him and stands, ipso facto, with Obama's political thuggery. Has Boehner said ANYTHING to denounce the Obama administrations strongarm tactics?ArtSTOP! Islamization Of America
The navy has large maned deep water submersables, they can retrive nucular warheads & salvage subs & rescue sailors in water twice this depth but no one has thought of these guys or Bob Woodward or Woodshole Oceanagraphic Research Center, The brains of deep water subs. Stop the leak and nature can start to put this right. But there wouldn't be any bad guys to shake down. It's hard to believe anyone thinks the republicans are going to save this country. 1 shows some integery the rest run for cover. the oil co. have done more to help La. than to harm it. JUST STOP THE LEAK! only one reason Obama can't get this done --he doesn't want to. GOD save our country were not.
Defending BP how exactly? He said in the clip that they are responsible. He was apologizing because the Chicago gangsters in power are creating a slush fund out of a disaster. And who, by the way, in your opinion is doing an admirable job in this mess? Obama? Reid? Pelosi? Waxman? Frank? Biden? When THEY start advancing the agenda that helps "regular" Americans someone kindly let me know as I will have stepped into Wonderland and I will expect my tea with the mad hatter shortly...
We know BP is the responsible party to Gulf spill. What we don't want is to establish a precedent by acting above the law that will come back to haunt American companies worldwide. BTW, when do the hearings on MMS start?
Thank you, Republicans. Keep up the good work of defending BP over regular Americans. You'll f**** up your midterm advantage little by little.
If it walks and talks like a duck then I guess to some members of congress its obviously a chicken... This gov't SHOULD be ashamed of itself because it was and is a shakedown and it will only get worse and set a terrible precedent for the future.
No apologies are due BP, but the White House did offer BP a Godfather offer, one the could not refuse. It was a shakedown of $20 billion. Let's see how the money is dispersed and who actually receives the benefits. Most on the Gulf coast smell oil in the water, the White House smells money.
