    Sure am glad our President didn't overreact when the coal miners were killed in West Virginia.  He might have closed all mining operations in the U.S.! Or closed all of the automobile production plants because of Toyota!  Or banished all cereal products because of Kellogg's recall!   No, his Middle-Eastern friends aren't involved in coal, autos or cereals - just oil.

    It "might" make sense to halt NEW drilling while they figure out a way to STOP any potential future problems.  Except this is NOT the first drilling accident and nobody seemed to learn from past mistakes.

    It certainly doesn't make sense to shut off existing operations that have proven to operate safely within regulations.

    The reason this happened is both Government Failure and the Failure of Private Contractors.  BP owns 65% of the operation.  But there are also 2 other owners who are not being pulled into the light of day by the media, in addition to Halliburton which always has it's dirty fingers evolved in these things and always gets off scott free.

    Isn't it interesting the anything Obama is against where he doesn't get his way... he just sues them?

    Sue the People.  That can be his election slogan.
