    The oil spill isn't dragging Obama's ratings down?

    Thats like saying the rain storm didn't make the lake wet.

    President Obama' realclearpolitics average 4/20 the day of the spill:

    48.7 - 46.7

    Current approval rating average:

    48.0 - 45.9

    You, my friend, are wrong again.

    Just let Obama continue to demonize BP...in true thug fashion...and do nothing but litigate...when the Government bears responsibility in this too...And that includes Obama..."On this from day one"...

    People will wake up.

    You are seriously delusional if you think public opinion of the president vs. BP is going to line up with the latter.

    The worst of BP on this isn't even widely known publicly.

    I think there is enough blame to go around on this disaster. For those of you who think it hasn't an impact on Obama is just fooling themselves. Americans perception on this disaster is even worse than Katrina with the government response. If you deniers think it won't hurt Barry, I'm sure you thought the same with Katrina and Bush....right?


    By more than a 2-to-1 margin, Americans support the pursuit of criminal charges in the nation's worst oil spill , with increasing numbers calling it a major environmental disaster. Eight in 10 criticize the way BP's handled it – and more people give the federal government's response a negative rating than did the response to Hurricane Katrina.

    Beaches across four Gulf shore states brace for oil onslaught. A month and a half after the spill began, 69 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll rate the federal response negatively. That compares with a 62 negative rating for the response to Katrina two weeks after the August 2005 hurricane.

    This is why the rest of the world see neocon Yanks as nothing but ill-informed partisan hacks who couldn't rub two braincells together if their lives depended on it...
