If Bush had said this the Right would clap and applaud him for being tough.

When Obama says it, he's given bad black stereotypes.

Keep it classy tea baggers

Yep, because no child ever heard the word "ass" before and will never ever hear it in their lifetime. Other people made good points on this aspect, too .

at the media criticism. For christ's sake, can this country make up its damn mind already? First he's not angry enough. Then he's too angry. Then he's got to have the right "kind" of anger, whatever that means. Then he's got to be careful how angry he is so he doesn't step on any race's toes. Then it's this, then it's that, then it's enough to make any sane person's head explode. I want to kick BP's ass, too, what does that say about me?

Here's a thought: how about we let Obama do...what Obama wants to do? How about we let Obama handle this crisis the best way he knows how? Hey, there's a novel idea!

This sort of pointless discussion the media and various political groups and whatnot bring up is precisely why we can't get crap done. Our entire focus should be on how to fix the problem in the Gulf.

Six months ago I would have honestly given the president a 90% chance of being re-elected.

Today? 60%. And less than that if Democrats hold the House and Senate in November.

He then said Obama was "going a little gangsta for us to feign authoritative behavior." [Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show, 6/8/10]

Davis: Obama's comment is "like Urkel channeling Jay-Z." Later in the Limbaugh show, Davis complained that Obama's comments were "galvanizingly off-putting" because they were "so contrived and so orchestrated." He added that the comments were "like Urkel channeling Jay-Z." [The Rush Limbaugh Show, 6/8/10]

Crowley: Obama "is Carlton Banks, not Suge Knight." In a blog post headlined "Gulf Oil Leak: Carlton Banks to the Rescue!" Fox News political analyst and radio host Monica Crowley likened Obama to fictional character Carlton Banks, writing that "Obama trying to show he's an angry avenger when he's essentially an automaton isn't going to work either. He is Carlton Banks, not Suge Knight. He's a navel-gazing, community organizing law professor, not a put-a-cap-in-your-ass gangbanger."
Nothing racist in these comments.

Nope.

No way.

I don't think I've ever had your level of confidence in Obama's chances of being re-elected. It was too soon to make a judgement like that six monhts ago and it's too soon now.

that sounds about right, honestly. i still like obama, and he's had a hell of a time since becoming president. things like the recession and the oil spill would've happened regardless, but this could've been handled better for sure.

haven't you been listening? the tea baggers are totally NOT racist, okay? they've said so.

in fact, the only racism going on is the accusation of racism, which is far worse than actual racism.

I don't see one in 2012. That's why I give the president a 60% shot.

which has been his remarkably steady approval rating over the past year or so.

in 2006, we thought it was a lock: Giuliani vs. Hillary.

given the wild unpredictability of the world -- oil spills! -- and the volatility of the electorate and the fact that we're in very much uncharted waters, i can't even begin to guess how 2012 is going to shape up.

true, 2012 is unpredictable at this time

and if they counted (or had) the primaries in Mich and Fl, it would have been Hillary,
I always believed Giuliani would fold, besides feeding off the 911 corpses, he had and was nothing.

The lack of leadership is just appalling to me. After the abortion which was dubya's years in power and now this guy, I believe the American public needs to look long and hard at how and who we are putting in power. It is evident to me that Bush got in way over his head and now I believe it to be the same for Obama. Where is our next great leader coming from? I really had high hopes for Obama but once again they are dashed at his obvious ineptitude.

Just to answer comments from Irvine and Moonlit preemptively - when you're the head of a Business or a Country or even a Country Club sometimes you need to be the bad guy and hold other people or businesses accountable even if they helped you to be placed into power.

I hope this country could come back after 12 or 16 years of no leadership.

Who is he not holding accountable?

I wish you had answered my questions in the Drill thread, because right now I'm having a hard time seeing if you really understand the issue.

You seem very emotional about it(which is understandable) but I'm not sure if you fully understand...

Emotional because I live on the Gulf Coast.

Now for the accountability question. For starters BP, the administration allowed BP to drive the response. They even were in agreement at how "little" was gushing out. I think more pressure needed to be put on BP right from the start.

MMS, Salazar knew this Department was filled with incompetance and chose not to deal with them once again and I'll know you'll say it's not Obama's doing but he is the chief right?

The point I'm trying to make is that in hind sight, Bush was not a very good choice for president and what I see of Obama so far I'm not impressed.

Please tell me you're happy with Feds and BP's response?
