May be Obama the know it all person can find an engineering solution for this problem. I am certain his extensive experience as community organizer in inner city Chicago made him a super engineer, ( as well as an super MD, a super economist, a super financial wiz, a super scientist, etc...)... (super extreme sarcasm).
I suppose it is conceivable that there may have been tampering with the rig, or extreme carelessness, but how the hell would that account for a valve that is a mile below the surface not working properly? I thought the valve was supposed to be practically fail safe.
Sounds too much like a Winston Churchill speech. He only needs to add, "We will never surrender."
16 years of Bush and Clinton with thousands of offshore wells. Not one blow out.
We have someone now who bows to the Saudi King named Hussein. A Saudi king who makes probably 3/4 of a trillion a year selling us oil. Who could make a trillion if our energy industry is harmed.
Cameron’s blowout valve supposedly fails on the sea bed? I am not buying it.
Mark Levin had a person who was on the scene when the blowout happened. It was a once in a hundred years freak gas blow out, not sabotage or terrorism or intentional. Eleven men were killed in the blowout. The story should beabout them, not Barry’s use to try and take control of the oiul industry, yet. The sonofabitch in the Oval Office is sending an army of lawyers to the scene. He intends for it to escalate as far as he can manage it, to mkae THE crisis Rahm deadfish Emanuel wants to exploit and Maxine Waters has already spilled the beans is coming ... to quote the commie bitch threatening the oil industry execs: ‘This liberal will be all about socializing, er, taking over your companies.’
this would be like Micheal Chrichton's State of fear in real life.
Who says the accident took place way down deep, first?
This “platform” is a ship with multiple azipod engines litterally keeping it hovering over the drill site, 5,000’ down.
Torpedo the ship, explode it,turtle it and sink it.
What happens to all that 5,000’ of drill pipe etc? Could bust a hundred ways.
Now consider this bit of info:
Dan Riehl brought to light an interesting piece of trivia related to the offshore drilling rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. It appears the blame for this event, one of historys worst environmental disasters, cant be shuffled off to President George W. Bush.
Thats right! It seems the initial exploration plan for the British Petroleum-owned Macondo prospect was, according to the folks at OffshoreTechnology.com, approved by the folks at the Minerals Management Service in March 2009. MMS falls under the supervision of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and, by working your way up the federal food chain, the approval authority lands squarely on the desk of President Barack Obama.
Whoops Salazar and Obammy Ok'd this project! NOT BUSH"S FAULT!
But the timing of the explosion was certainly perfect.
A DISASTER WITHOUT PRECEDENT
It’s no disaster!
When I was a kid more oil than that boiled to the surface NATURALLY 24/7 and wound up on the braches from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border and the only harm was that when i went to the beach I got scrubed down in a washtub with kerosene to remove the tar before I could come in the house.
I doesn’t happen today because of the offshore oil drilling that reduced the gas presure and only a small amount, comparatavially, boils up today.
The people in Mississippi and Louisiana who are in the fishing industry are in huge trouble this year financially...they better find another career asap...at least for five years or so. Alaska fisherman felt the financial burden for about that long.
Just imagine if President Bush waited over a week to mention a disaster like this. He spoke up a week BEFORE Katrina, warning the State of LA to prepare and what kind of treatment did he get?
It's not the News Reports, it's who Reports the News...
Burn the birds, clean up the mess, and keep drillin’!
Michael Savage had a long interview with a clearly very knowledgable drilling engineer tonight who worked at Halliburton for 35 years. He said he did not see any way this could have been an accident. He explained why in great depth, using explanatons of how they used concrete and mud and gas, and what would have occured if there was a fissure or crack which occured (mud and liquid would have shot up is massive quanitity, causing a huge problem before anything could ignite). Instead he said there was a sudden, huge explosion, and the Chef's statement backs that up, since he said there were absolutely no problems before the out-of-the-blue explosion.
Savage also talked about the recent sinking of the South Korean vessel, and about how North Korea has been building a large fleet of suicide subs. Very interesting show.
The tephlon community organizer and chief.......................... who me? I wanted offshore drilling. yeah right! eco terrorists graduated from car dealerships to this
