I am sorry, but listening to the President on FoxNews, I just can’t hold my tongue any longer. I will say that BP and the rig owner are responsible for stopping the leak, but the environmental and economic damage could have been prevented or at least significantly reduced due to inaction – even now. The media has shown now water/oil seperator ships, no attemps to contain the spill, no attempts to collect the surface oil.
There are so many things that could have and should have been done to minimize the damage by the Federal government. BP needs to concentrate on stopping the flow, the Federal government needs to concentrate on containment vice the current free flow of the spill.
Thank you and God bless.
