i think to my personal view i think that fed/state need to shift to a new plan... but of course allot of times that the fed/state just neglect eventho they knew there is a big problem with it and just plain in-gnore bascially just that they are the saddest people who just dont understand the importance of basically everything that is going on in usa what is happening to usa oh i dont know or oh it is fine dont worry about it or oh seem operating well... I wish i could move to Switzerland and peace out with the fed/state problems like chasing a rabbits and whats more i was surprised that they even could not do it right and i begin to wonder if they have their college degree to take care of the mess we have here .... should we search them find out if they have college degree or not ?? hmmm

I guess we've run out of poll questions. How about something like: how long do you think you'll keep your current vehicle? or when you're ready to replace your vehicle, will you get 1. new 2. used (from dealer) 3. used (from a place like CarMax) 4. used (from an individual). Or maybe something like, will your next vehicle purchase be replacing an existing, or adding a vehicle?

1. Obama ought to resign and take every bureaucrat and 'czar' he appointed with him.

2. EPA officials should be forced to take a 'sensitivity' course on the reality of life, as they are living in a dream world.

3. Ditto Fish and Wildlife.

Let me look at all of these....
Nothing(not the government's job) - yea, like that's going to happen. We butt our noses into other countries business, surely the government won't be able to resist getting their noses involved in this.
Supervise BP's efforts - Only if they can get people actually familiar with what is going on. Experts in the field otherwise it's like a lawyer supervising a chef: can be done but the meal may be mediocre.
Hire a new team to do the work - as good as an idea that may be, for the same reason BP has not yet fired Hayward, the government won't take over - right now BP is taking all the flak and damage. The government takes over, the public is going to want immediate results and any delays would not be accepted. So from the government's standpoint, they need BP to take the bad publicity.
Assure that affected citizens are compensated - isn't that what the 20Billion fund is for?
Concentrate on protecting the coast - That is the job of our military: to protect the citizens and territory of America. I use territory because in reality, Washington DC is not a state nor is Puerto Rico, the Northern Marianas, American Samoa, Guam,and American Virgin Islands.
Bring in military resources - Coast Guard is already they and they are part of our military.

So, my answer, protect the coast.

Government's job is to protect the coast. The Obama administration has fallend downonthe job or maybe it is just political because lal of the states involved are Republican states. this adminstratobn has provied no leadership and its incompetence reaches new levels every day. The "Peter Principle" at work.
