    McCain said it. Palin seconded it. That was the difference between them and the other side.
    George Bush being a former oil man, said let the oil companies self-regulate the off shore drilling.
    Dick Cheney, former Haliburton president. Is it not a surprise that Haliburton is in the middle of the current mess?
    Obama authorizes Off shore drilling. He did try to find common ground with the conservatives.

    Drill baby drill, self-regulate, let private corporations make the rules. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Drill yes. But not with the reckless abandon of drill baby drill. Not without GOVERNMENT regulation. Not too much regulation but we see the result of not enough regulation.

    Once again the far right has shown to be wrong with real world results.

    The far Left was in-charge of the country for the worst environmental disaster in US history. Please stop blaming the "fer right" when the "far left" was driving the bus. If you saw the list of violations that created the spill, failure of the Obama regulators to do their jobs, then you'd know. The "far left" caused the spill, not the "far right".

    Drill baby drill, but do your homework, do the spill protection, and be sure the fucking batterys and shut-off valves work!!

    You are throwing out senseless BS.
    I do not agree with the far left but they do not feel therte should be any drilling for oil off the US shores.

    Apparently, this oil spill is the first experience many leftists have had with the concept of "shit happens". Now, I guess, we're never allowed to do ANYTHING where there's the slightest possibility of anything going wrong. If it's not perfect, it can't be done.

    Yes, the left is correct on this. Because we've seen over the last 60 years that government regulations, mandates, bans and initiatives fix and prevent all problems and result in nothing but utopian efficiency. Just see:

    Gov't schools
    Gov't roads
    Gov't DMV
    Gov't healthcare
    Gov't housing
    Gov't food stamps
    Gun bans
    Saggy pants bans
    Welfare
    Probation and parole laws

    Yep. All of the above are run efficiently and with high quality results. Government regulation will fix and prevent all problems.

    Nice try. Your own Hopey Changey said it too. He was the one who just ended the 20yr ban on offshore oil drilling in some areas. It wasn't BOOOOOOOOOSH or Palin who did that. In fact many Floridians are pissed at your Hopey Changey for screwing them on his offshore drilling decision. He has also handled this awful oil spill calamity very badly. Hey nice try at some Hopey Changey spin though. I'm sure the usual suspects will buy it,but i wont.

    Are we a nation of defeatists, or will we conquer our fears and resolve setbacks only to move forward.

    Tell me one thing that is "senseless"....
    1. do you deny that the dems are in-charge of the federal government since 1/20/2009?
    2. do you deny that the worst environmental disaster in US history happened on their watch?
    3. So don't blame the "far right" when the "far left" was in-charge. If they don't know how to drive the bus, go back to community organizing and/or working for ACORN.
    4. If we don't drill in north America we need to import more oil. Thats a bad idea. I like Obama's new MPG limits, that is a good idea. He needs a lot more good ideas to get us out of the ditch.

    Take responsibility when you're in-charge. Its "senseless" to allow whiny leftists to run the gopvernment. The EU found that out, and middle-America is finding that out now. There is no free lunch.
