It seems clear to me that blame for the horrific oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, now swishing ashore in Louisiana, must be placed at the feet of GW Bush and the Tea Party Navy. HillBilly craft of the Tea Party Navy must have worked its way totally . . . totally, Dude! . . .undetected and managed a CSS Huntley on the BP Platform. That is the only answer that makes sense, because Chris Matthews was on HBO with Bill Maher talking about a Ménage à trois to explain the Charlie Crist story and Milkey Matthews blurts out his idea du jour -"Ménage à trois,Ménage à trois,Ménage à trois,Ménage à trois, Hey Remember Beau Geste?" - until someone slaps the back of his head.
President Obama today promised a review of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico after an explosion at an oil rig.
Mr. Obama said he ordered Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to review what happened and report back within 30 days with "additional precautions and technologies" to prevent future accidents like this from happening again.
During the remarks in the White House Rose Garden, Mr. Obama sought to counteract perceptions that his administration had been slow to react to the disaster, saying that his team has been "working closely" with state and local officials since the day of the explosion last week.
He said that the federal government was "fully prepared to meet our responsibilities to any and all affected communities." Several Cabinet secretaries have already been dispatched to the scene, as well as 1,900 federal personnel and other resources. Mr. Obama also stressed that BP would be responsible for all costs related to the cleanup and said the administration is inspecting all deepwater rigs in the Gulf.
