    Since Apr 18, 2010 there's been an oil spill that's go on for far too long. As an American I'd like to know why hasn't Mr. Obama done something along the lines of a solution instead of photo/press ops. Clearly he's not come up with a solution only the typical finger pointing and lame excuses.

    It is BP's fault for having a platform that did not conform to safety standards.

    BP is a private corporation.

    And the thing is in deep water and it is hard to get at and fix.

    So while I yield to no one in my disapproval of the narcissist in chief, it really isn't his responsibly, which is exclusively that of BP.

    It's both government's fault and BP's fault.

    I am sure glad that corporations are responsible for the results of their actions and need no nanny govt regulations to make them do things in a safe manner.

    Trust in the corporation.

    Actually, you have inadvertently put your finger on the difficulty for President Obama's supporters.

    No, he is not responsible for the leak, even if the final go-ahead was in 2009, under his administration.

    No, the philosophical problem is that progressives, i.e., President Obama, have put forth the premise that it is govermnent that can accomplish all, and that is where we should place our faith.

    The oil spill casts the lie to this premise.

    No actually the result of a physical condition in my case.

    Umm you might want to look up the definition of vapid.

    I had to. These darned big word users....
