    Why does Obama hate big business?

    Man, but according to some right-wingers on this board, and one in particular, Obama is just responding horribly here.

    You go Mr President. This is one serious pile of shit. Or "a big fucking deal" as Joe would say.

    Time to pull out the stops. Let's show everyone what "big government" is needed for.

    What the hell was BP thinking on this one?

    My father's side of the family lives in Tampa, I sure hope that slick doesn't reach that far.

    Let's do a comparison of who protects us better. Corps or our gov... Accidental nuke explosion ..gov making a mistake?...nada

    Massive oil spills..Corps...How about dozens of times...two biggies alaska and this one...

    Who SHOULD we trust based on the track record?

    bush was heavily criticized for a mere 3 days, called a racist, but the governor and mayor, barely a whisper of complaint....how many days has it been here and nothing but praise from the left for the way obama is handling it? if this was still bush, i guarantee each and every one of you would be heavily criticizing him, pointing out his ties to big oil etc....

    and really, this thread makes no sense

    Apparently the conservatives are going to try to make this "Obama's fault" too, like they do with everything else.

    Hey the Moon exploded! That must be Obama Fault!

    MY dog died! Obama's fault!

    My penis won't get erect! Definitely Obama's fault!

    The "PROBLEM" is BIG OIL.

    Obama had nothing to do with the cause...HELLO!!! THE CAUSE!!!!

    GAWWWDDD you people are fucking ZOMBIES!!!



    Bush hired Brownie...a fucking show horse judge to protect us in case of a NATURAL DISASTER!!!!


    Bush gave out seriously important positions based on contributions to his election funding.

    Is there anyone at this point in time that would praise Bush for putting Brownie the top guy in fema?

    bp..TO PAY duh!!!...YA THINK????? Man you people are dirt fucking stupid.

    It probably is his fault, if you're a conservative male.

    He's not comparing Katrina to the oil spill. He's comparing partisan responses.
