    One month later, he finally takes control of the spill.....or does he?

    A month after oil spill began, Obama begins taking charge - Yahoo! News

    With BP removed from the newly assigned task force, they can say whatever they want about what's happening at the site. They can use this engineering professor's "best guess" scenario to up the ante on actual size of the spill...seems you'd want an expert for that.

    My biggest question is why haven't they moved on this sooner? If they have all the people they need without BP's representation, why didn't they do this sooner? What do they plan to accomplish?

    And why aren't we hearing the blame game from the libs about the month long delay to take action?

    Obama is too busy dumping on Arizona to care about an oil spill.

    I can envision a scenario such as this, use the oil spill as an opportunity to push the green agenda, the worse the spill the greater the opportunity. The brainwashing of the Democrats into believing that the Obama Administration is not culpable is a given..

    And isn't it interesting that the Enviro Whackos are WISHING for the catastrophe that hasn't happened yet?

    Raising liability limits across the board will go a long way toward killing the domestic petroleum industry. It will include both major and independent oil companies.

    All Obama has done so far is use the blame game. He's mainly concerned with bad-mouthing Arizona right now. Oil spills are not a priority. He can't figure out whom to suck up to on this one.

    To date he has done nothing but cast blame on BP. He's said that he has no intention of doing anything....and really all he can do is get in the way anyway....because this is a serious problem that he can't fake knowing what to do.

    interesting that there's been NO lib response here. I guess it's hard to argue with the truth.
