It has been more than 50 days since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and I'm wondering how people feel about it. BP still hasn't plugged it up, and it gets worse by the day. Perhaps the hardest part is seeing pictures of animals covered in oil and dying...Some people are starting to point the finger, and I'm wondering who many of you feel is to blame.

Personally I find those who blame it on Obama to be ridiculous. True, one could make the argument that he didn't do enough at the start, and may have underestimated it, but lets not forget that BP was doing all it could to distort the number of gallons and the overall situation to maintain its own image. Now we see how bad things really are, and they simply can't cover it up. Given this information, it's ludicrous that some call this "Obama's Katrina."

It's truly horrible to see what's going on there, particularly since I live near the gulf.
Here's a picture taken from a NASA satellite showing just how
big the spill as of May 24th (nearly a full month ago!) -

As far as throwing blame around goes, I have to admit that I'm still a little sketchy
on some of the details, but I think that there are several directions you could reasonably
point to. BP is obviously the one primarily at fault.....I'm not totally sure, but I've heard
that BP is using the samed plans that failed to contain an earlier spill (Ixtoc I) Could anyone
tell me if this is the case? If

As far as Obama goes, I'm inclined to think this interview makes the best case why people
are unhappy with Obama. (it's only 6 1/2 minutes. Unfortunately, the anchor is obviously
biased, but the person being interviewed (Mike Huckabee) makes several good points. )

Hey guys,

As you may have noticed, the site has been pretty slow lately...but I know everyone's been doing a little bit of lurking, so by now I'm sure you've seen each of the different chats. I changed to Everywhere chat as it seemed like it was what most people wanted, but unfortunately it was buggy and kept Smashed and a few others from being …
