Living in Mississippi, with a governor not unlike a Boss Hog caricature who insists on continuing to unabashedly downplay the spill until it inevitably begins to wash up here, I am overjoyed to no end that Obama said this exactly in this way.
Yeah it took him 50 days to start talking like he wants to sound tough. Good choice.
Bush would have this fixed by now, he actually knows how to lead.
Williamburns: This is what you liberals do you shift the argument. I'm not talking about who caused it, I'm talking about who can fix it. The Bush administration got shit done. They'd fix this.
Mark's right though. The Bush administration cleared more brush in 8 years than Obama and his cronies could ever hope to.

You would have expected Bush. George W. Bush. To be hard on oil guys.
That is the first thing related to the oil spill I've been able to laugh at.
Katrina was a state matter first. This oil spill took place in international waters and thus was the federal government's responsibility from the get go.
This oil spill shows Obama's failure as a leader. He's barely even talked with BP execs. Don't send a community organizer to do a president's job.

Bush would have been talking to them, but only during the times the BP execs cocks weren't shoved all the way down his throat.
Yes. Send a dimwitted, coked up, ex-party boy chickenhawk with sociopathic handlers behind him to do a presidents job.
Harrytubbyguy: I don't have the answer, Bush does.
Great, you're back to the name calling again. To top it off, you make fun of Harriet Tubman. Harriet. Tubman.
So you don't even know if Bush has an answer to it, but you assume he does, and you vehemently say over and over that he'd know how to fix this.
I wish I could jump to conclusions as much as you do - actually, wait, I don't.

If Obama got in a mad scrap with some oil-honkeys I would totally have his back. I love this to bits.
Oh no, the President said a**! Impeach his heiny!
Best Republican president we've had in decades.
It's sad, i was skeptical at first and now I'm liking Obama more and more while his popularity is dwindling due to wingnut propaganda.

How about maintaining the drilling ban, reviewing all extant platforms and pushing through new regulations with that? No? You saw a poll that said people need an Angry Daddy? Go for it.
FUCK I meant to one star this and now it's RUINED!
The above wasn't supposed to be a reply, but it seems to work okay with the "angry daddy" sentiment.
Fuck! I meant to one star this!
HEY GUYS WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS PART OF THE COMMENTS HUH?
Well I'm really hurt by all this AND OH FUCK I FAVORITED IT
Nice knowin' ya, B.O.
Glad our first black president is proving relatively mediocre and not a disaster.
Wonder why the MMS regulation of the offshore industry is so antiquated?
The feds don't pay enough in professional fees to get more than the dregs of the petroleum engineering field.
The U.S produces 48,000 lawyers and 300 petroleum engineers a year. As a culture, perhaps spills are cosmic retribution.
shitty center-right neo-liberal president putting on show to delight vapid npr and daily show consuming morons
lol yeah man! don't criticize nobody unless you name someone better fart rip burp

This interview was edited for television. In the unedited version he says, and I quote:
What do they expect us to do? Wave our hands in the air? Just sit on our deriere?
I have just three words for BP, then I'll be gettin' busy
Whoomp there it is
Let me repeat
whoomp there it is
You go dog!

I think obama jumped the shark with this one.
I'm actually amazed at all the cheer leading this is getting. Can't you feel the pandering?
I also put my top person (me) on figuring out whose asses to kick. He came back with, "this is big oil, just start randomly kicking asses, you can't miss."
Pandering is the right word. Obama is just not built for this.
