They couldn't burn off the oil. The water is too choppy for the boons. They won't be able to contain the spill for weeks meaning it's still gushing. This looks like a disaster in the making.

They waited too long before taking action, I'm certain the main stream media will call this "Obama's Katrina"...hmmmm, maybe not. Where was FEMA??? Did Obama even do a "fly over"??
The way this will play out goes something like this...BP pays for the clean up and financial loses, then they pass the cost along to the consumer at the pumps...their competition will raise their prices to keep BP's actions from being so obvious. In other words, boycotting BP will not help...every producer will bump prices, and as usual, we lose.

I must agree. Just because only a few lives were lost and a little oil in the water doesn't mean this isn't as devastating to our environment and our economy as Katrina was.
But another thought I had -- Obama gives the go ahead for more drilling in the gulf and shortly after this situations happens. Not insinuating that Obama had anything to do with it, but it is very odd the chain of events. Makes you wonder if someone somewhere didn't have a hand in it.......we may never know what caused the accident. I feel for the families that lost loved ones.

Typical. When we continue to consume and don't drill all we are doing is pushing it off to other countries with less lax standards. You would have some credibility if you were walking to work.

It is all so clear now. I can't believe we couldn't see it earlier. Obama is the cause of the oil spill. Obama caused the economy to fail. Obama is responsible for the death of the sardine canning industry. Obama is responsible for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama created the earthquakes, volcano eruptions, tornados, and hurricanes that are plaguing the planet. Obama was responsible for the the assassination of Kennedy and Lincoln. He started the Civil War , World Wars l and ll. He is trying to destroy health care, and he has ruined prime time television. If it weren't for Obama we wouldn't have the nationwide drug epidemic and feral cats on TVA. Obama personally sabotaged the gas pedals on a million Toyotas and I hear he doesn't like capitalism. One busy dude huh...?
