    The difference between Katrina and the BP Oil Leak

    One's a natural disaster, one was a man-made problem caused by private business.

    For the love of God PLEASE stop comparing Bush's response to Katrina to Obama's response with this oil leak. They are NOT the same kind of problems, so their responses will be different.

    Ok weird... I spelled Katrina wrong, edited it to fix it... but it still says "Katrine" instead of Katrina in a couple areas, but it also shows Katrina too. hmmm...

    Obama's leadership...


    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who represents the district in which the BP explosion occurred, said he tried reaching the president last Thursday to discuss possible solutions.
    He was called back by a staffer on Friday who said that the president was too busy to talk to him. He understood that until I turned on the TV and saw that he was golfing and went out to California to do a fundraiser. He said six days now and hes never even spoken to him," McCarthy said.

    Oh, I do think that this will result in some serious damage. However everyone's calls for Obama to fix it and for him not acting quick enough, then comparing it to how Bush reacted to Katrina is really apples and oranges. The government has an agency specifically designed to respond to natural disasters on a large scale (like Katrina). It is equipped with the knowledge and know how on what to do in that situation.

    With this oil leak, the government is not experts on oil/deep sea drilling. They aren't equipped with the knowledge or the know how on what to do in this situation. Plus, if the government were to intervene and take over the clean up then we'll be footing the bill, not BP.

    Obama said last night that the US gov't is and always has been in charge of the oil spill, not BP, and BP takes their orders from the US gov't. That's what got me thinking that this isn't that much different than Katrina in terms of dealing with a disaster. He/US gov't has been lax, imo.

    Lol... I'm sorry but what an idiot! Is he really saying that the government came up with the idea of doing a top kill? Is he really saying that the government has been the one telling BP what they should be doing?

    Sorry, I don't believe it. I think the gov't has just been telling BP to fix it and putting pressure on them, and BP is the one trying to fix it and coming up with the ideas. That doesn't make the government in charge of the cleanup. In fact... I think they've played a minimal role in this cleanup because they're simply not equipped to be in charge of it.

    Exactly. In fact, when questioned, he didn't even know if Elizabeth Birnbaum resigned or was fired or even if she was actually gone. That's being in charge? LMAO!
    But, hey, if that's his position, then epic fail.

    Re: The difference between Katrine and the BP Oil

    how about those government people that got gifts to approve the drilling and assumed, without asking, that BP had resources, standing by, in case something went wrong?

    the head of that department just resigned. the IG says they were all friendly with the oil people they were supposed to regulate, spent their time looking at porno.

    remember there was a president that said, the buck stops here? remember al gore re-invented government?

    anyway, corporations never pay anything. it will be a deduction from the taxes they would have paid, or if it is too horrible, they will go bankrupt, like enron, losing all their pension fund money, which Obama will have to write a check for, using my money.


    http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpu...-bp-spill.html


    Perhaps the most notable embarrassment came in September of 2008. MMS Employees, who are tasked with ensuring that taxpayers get their share of oil and gas revenues from companies drilling on federal land, were fired for accepting gifts, favors - even sex - from oil industry employees. Some admitted using marijuana and cocaine on the job.

    When so-called oil for sex scandal broke Danielle Brian the Executive Director for Project on Government Oversight told ABC News, They have not only not been doing their jobs, but they have not been doing it because they have literally been in bed with who they are supposed to be overseeing,

    Under the Bush Administration, the Interior Department as a whole was rocked by one scandal after another. Sharon Buccino of the Natural Resources Defense Council told ABC News that for years it was completely mismanaged.

    Unfortunately we had people in control under the Bush administration who really put the interest and the profit of their friends in the oil and gas, coal industry front and center, Buccino said.
