The President said last night in his remarks on the oil spill:

 “The one answer I will not settle for is the idea that this challenge is somehow too big and too difficult to meet. …  The same thing was said about our ability to harness the science and technology to land a man safely on the surface of the moon.”

 Considering the Obama administration is currently dismantling our ability to send a man to the moon (or anywhere else in space), it would seem this may very well be a challenge too big and too difficult for this administration.

    It’s amazing, Limewire owes $1 billion yet BP only owes $69 million. “Because sharing music is 14.5x more damaging than catastrophic spills.”


    You destroy the environment, no big deal. Now if you threaten corporate profits ….

    Our government is so out of touch with reality. A plutocracy indeed.

    “it would seem this may very well be a challenge too big and too difficult for this administration.”

    as if the Bush administration (or the republicans) would have done any better. If anything they are part of the problem just as well.

    It is hard to tell of course what another adminstration might have done differently (interestingly a recent poll in Louisiana rated Bush higher in terms of his response to Katrina compared to Obama’s response to the oil spill) but what Bush might of done really is no excuse for what this President has or has not done – and a weak speech two moths later certainly isn’t helping.

    As far as damages, those haven’t been assessed yet – there is of course the coerced extra-legal 20 billion dollar escrow account that is established now, to be disbursed at the whims of the administration. And if the stimulus money is any indicator, this escrow will go to political interests and do little to aid the actual people hurt by the oil spill.
