    Republicans, are you for the government taking over this oil spill? If so, I thought that was everything you WERE against. I thought it was all about the private sector and deregulation.

    I see Jindal asking the government for help again....THIS WEEK.

    The government intervening in the event of a national crisis is not equivalent to taking permanent ownership of the economic sector.

    Where does it state in the Constitution that our Federal Government has the authority or responsibility to clean up oil spills?

    I often wonder how painful it is for the right to be so hypocritical.
