Depends. Should we have some of the national guard out there? Sure. They could definitely help. Should we have regulatory agencies on sites where tar balls are coming ashore? No, not really.
Armed forces types can be out there cleaning up and, perhaps, coming up with strategy on plugging the leak. Everyone else needs to be the hell away from there, to ensure something like this doesn't happen again.
The people who feel "Obama" should be fixing this really have no idea what they're talking about. He can prevent it from happening again (or, at least, making it harder) by fixing the regulations that Bush removed (well documented, by the way). But Obama can't just go down there and wave a magic wand. That blame isn't very well-placed.
Meanwhile, BP has bought redirects for certain search terms and phrases.
Great PR strategy. If you
can't successfully cap it
, try to manipulate the search engines, right?
