I think its because BP claimed to have an environmental policy. Clearly its a marketing disaster when you look if they really did have action the very dodgy company they associated with where no one was held accountable and the blame and transferance meant if disaster response was done the way China did during their olympics when school buildings werent built properly at least someone would have felt something was being done.
I agree with the republican senator who said shame on the government, its just more obama buck passing instead of as Harry S Truman once said, note also democrat, the buck stops here?
Everyone seems to think Obama has been weak and insipid on his handling, folks wanna know something is being done, the problem was in the regulations from the start which were left over from the previous Bush admin, which the Republican Senator admitted, that an entity could exist and when an Executive at BP says sorry, its means it when he says he is going to stay to the end to clear up the mess, it looks incredibly superficial when Obama punishes him telling him to "Golden parachute back to England"? name calling a golden parachuter is offensive not just to the troops who typically respond to a disaster but golden, its anti rich, the same as Rudd taxing miners in Australia, its lacks integrity for the action taken on wealth creation without accountability?
Specifically if Obama had done the right thing correct consequences would have followed clearly he hasnt and Obama must be held accountable?
To not even go to the disaster area, what did the Chinese polit beauro do? Listen to the folks in the field and act on it, attacking the person fixing the problem is incredibly incompetant? Go for the regulations to make the clean up really happen and in a big way even if an all night sitting of congress is needed to do it, to totally ignore it hoping it goes away, is like, wanting the whole coast line to get covered in a greasy oily slick, its more remiss government inaction than action man fixes slick? Dunno maybe Hillary really would have made a better President?
When you look at the American folks being a philanthropic decent kind genuine and sincere nation of incredible achievers, everyone in the whole debacle seems to have been more worried about keeping their jobs superficially than doing anything unpopular that would have created real results.
We had an oil slick on the incredibly valuable great barrier reef in Queensland Australia, and we thought deep sea oil drilling took way too long from August to September but this has dragged on for months and been an incredible remiss mismanagement from USA government from start to finish, the worst part? Kevin Rudd has not claimed a greater victory than Obama and is now loosing his job to Julia Guillard from blatant opportunism the worst part, Obama abandoned Kevin because he then decided to do something after months of inaction which cost Kevin Rudd his job to Julia? Weird mob lefties???
Who cares? Try telling a water bird choking on sludge or the fisherman whose nets are drowing in black slime? Gotta get me an electric car this is all to vile?
