OR is it just a big show for politicians to lambaste this man? Granted he deserves ZERO sympathy but REALLY something needs to be DONE and I am really sick of hearing these people talk! We need equipment that weren't getting down here to clean and we need PEOPLE to help clean and we need BOATS to skimm and clean the WATER...we do NOT need more political HOT AIR! What do you think?

They are showing the world how "tough" they are. They (we) want someone to blame so badly that we don't understand that this one man didn't do anything himself - actually. It has been the work of many people setting up the situation. There is an air of cutting corners, there is an air of needing the product, there is a responsibility of our EPA and the tree huggers for pushing drilling so far off-shore, there is an arrogance of our president for waiting so long to even make a public statement much less go check it our, there is an atmosphere of throwing BP under the bus without realizing it is a publicly owned company, and finally, the moratorium that will put thousands out of work - now, when we desperately need jobs. No one is fixing the problem. They just want to say "see, I fussed at him. He's the bad guy." Well, don't fuss - fix. Fuss later.

"We need equipment that weren't getting down here to clean and we need PEOPLE to help clean and we need BOATS to skimm and clean the WATER...we do NOT need more political HOT AIR!" I totally agree. That's what the govt should be focusing on right now. We can put BP through the ringer after the crisis has passed (assuming it ever will). And the government could also be changing it's policy on regulating big oil.
You mean those skimmers that were offered by 13 foreign nations to help us deal with this disaster within the first few days to first few weeks, that the Obama administration turned away? People were right when they said this wasn't Obama's Katrina. Katrina wasn't even this big of a flub up. This is outright treasonous negligence. The inexperience is showing.

Republicans aren't looking after the average American family!
Duh. Neither party looks out for the average American family. That's up to us to do for ourselves. But we don't just curl up and accept the crap they are handing us. We demand that they do what is right. They work for us and if they aren't doing the work, then hire a new person.
