Bloody Pathetic

Anyone want to know why Barack Obama actually got angry about the finger-pointing over responsibility for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill debacle?

Watch this.

Listening to Mike Williams describe his ordeal and miraculous escape -- and listening to him recount the litany of violations of good practice and common sense to keep the oil pumping -- makes a thinking person want to scream.

It does help explain the inability to cap the well -- and the inane ideas like dumping old tires and golf balls down the well.

Williams makes clear that BP's principal concern was the keep the oil and the cash flowing. It's an attitude that should be penalized by making the oil company and its enablers -- and not the taxpayers -- responsible for the financial cost of the cleanup We will all pay the price of the environmental damage.

And how's that drill, baby drill thing workin' out for ya Sarah?
