    Do You think Obama is partially responsible for the oil spill crisis?

    Trying to see what Hubbers thoughts and opinions are.

    I don't believe so. But the government could probley change some regulations to meet deep sea drilling.

    Not at all. He may be responsible for actions or inactions, or essentially his response AFTER the spill, but not for the spill itself.

    I don't think Obama is responsible for the spill. I think he has to take some measure of blame for the slow repairs and damage to the environment. It took far too long for that thing to be capped (hopefully it will stay that way), As the leader of the free world, he should be standing on the BP CEO's desk until the problem is under control and remain there until the clean-up is done.
    He should be writing new regulations for underwater off shore drilling practices. None of this should be swept under the carpet. Handling this topic with a firm hand from the oval office hasn't seemed to motivate as he expected. So, there must be reprocusions for BP and those who's equipment failed or was mis-applied during manufacturing.

    Good question!

    as in Obama personally cuased the explosion.  No I dont.  how ever his response to the Leak was lackluster, slow and slapshod.

    it is the Federal governments fault though, for failing to inspect the  rig better.   and now storys of bribes and kickbacks for and to inspectors are surfacing.

    Just ask Republicans and a lot of white folks, he's responsible for everything that's happened for the last 10 years. Peace!!

    Absolutely not! That's a crazy idea. That's like saying Louisiana was responsible for Katrina. And as far as his response: The coast guard was there the same day, Washington set up a post in Louisiana and Obama visited in the same week. He's been doing everything he can. And I applaud him on his quick response and his efforts to help the people affected.
