Oil Spill response? Of course, more legislation...


I genuinely feel sorry for President Obama on this catastrophic oil spill thing. I think he looks way outmatched and unsure. He'll make a lot of people mad no matter what he does going forward.
This spill may well prove to be one of the most devastating environmental and economic disasters in our country's history, especially if some of the controversial modern clean up methods are not allowed. We'll see. Honesty, I'm praying for God to give wisdom to the powers that be for the sake of the people who depend on the gulf economy and the stewardship of God's creation.

Given this President's usual response to crisis, I think it's safe to say how he and his cronies in Washington will respond. You can bet on another massive piece of legislation that will solve all our problems. One can only imagine the kind of additional regulations and bureaucracies that are coming.

The gulf shore isn't the only thing about to get ugly.

I vote "Bubba" for president. He will 'Git-r-Done'!!! These are the experts Mr. Obama needs to consult. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6_LU4zHlSE

What’s worse, is him shutting down ALL off-shore drilling! How ridiculous, it’s like grounding every airline because one plane crashed and thousands were affected. All these ridiculous new reg’s are going to do is play in the hands of the Saudi’s. When the oil drilling is stopped here, where are we going to go to get? Right to those who hate us and want to destroy America! How dumb and ignorant can any “leader” propose to be? These new reg’s will also play right into his devious plan for “cap and tax to the max!”
And what’s worse, American are so angry they will buy into anything right now to get back at the oil companies.

You are right on Nathan! I think Bubba's coverall will indeed get-er-done.

It just seems there is a shortage of qualified leaders in this country. Has 'gridlock' finally created an environment when an intelligent qualified competent person has no interest in government service? I think so. Just look at the current stock of 'leaders', types like Palin and Pelosi, and lets now forget McCain who threw his wife out on the street, no morals, neither of whom could hold a real job in the real world. With this as the best the extreme parties can offer, I shutter to think what the future holds!!! At least, regardless of how incompetent/flawed the people are, despite them, we know who is in control. Thank you Lord!!!!
