    Re: The Gulf Oil Disaster

    Was in the process of making reservations to spend a week in beautiful Clearwater,Fla. on the Gulf coast a day before it happen. I guess the water will not be so clear anymore. This makes me soooooo sick.

    If Bush was in office it would be all his fault and the man would have been crucified by the liberal media

    Oh please, there are plenty of news sources that are for and against both parties. Bush was just a ****ty president. I voted for Obama, and I still think it's all his fault. Not because there's a news source out there telling me to feel this way, but because I can think for myself. That still doesn't make Bush any better of a president then he actually was, because a lot of the stuff he did was his fault. He was the ****ing president for christs sake.

    Haha yea, because all people who voted for Obama obviously believe that the government caused 9/11. By the way, that's me being sarcastic.

    Your point said that America wouldn't do anything about russia torpedo-ing our gas lines - Right now, our administration is investing ten times more then reagen invested in defense budgets, and yes, even more then bush put towards the defense budget as well (Which I disagree with, big time. Just because I voted for the guy doesn't mean I suck his **** like you procalim everyone who isn't conservative to). So you mean to tell me that we'd be willing to put so much money towards defense strategies, yet wouldn't acknowledge russia bombing us? Please don't fall back to calling me a moron simply because we disagree.

    I appreciate the OP for the thread and all but please keep your political views to yourselves as said in the code of conduct [=P] and because having arguments over politics on a football message board is just plain stupid.

    Re: The Gulf Oil Disaster

    sorry to point it out to you, but it was the Bush administration that removed the requirement for a bypass valve that would have shut the oil down in 24 hours. Oil companies complained that cost of the valve alone was 1/2 a million dollars and that it was an unnecessary expenditure. The issue was brought to the Bush administration, more specifically **** Chaney, and it was declared superfluous. The rig itself, was a Haliburton project. So, yes, this would indeed be Bush's fault, or at least his administration's, and they should all be crucified by the general public for the worst ecological disaster to date, and it's only getting bigger. I live on the Gulf Coast-it's beautiful. Well, it is today, not too sure what it might look like tomorrow or next week. Sunday I'll be going to help clean up the casualties of this oil spill-wildlife and birds and such that are being moved to the Southern coast because their natural home has been destroyed-want me to take some pictures of the victims for you? Might help bring the reality home.

    here's some links from a quick google search to back up my claims:
    Chaney's removal of the "acoustical valve" :

    I can't help but disagree with you. Obama knew what the issues were down there, he shouldn't have authorized drilling. Simple as that. Make it safe before you go down there to drill. Come up with some blueprint beforehand in case some terrible disaster happens.

    However, I did just find this article on the NYT front page - http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/15/us...5obama.html?hp

    This should have been said a year ago when he was inaugurated. Pretty much the platform he ran on.
