    hard to believe that tool is ready to renounce oil. Wasn't it his administration that put in place the lax regulations of off shore drilling that contributed to this disaster in the first place.

    If it is true, it won't be trumpeted in the television media. The Miami Herald is not quite mainstream enough, considering newspapers are dying.

      The reality is that the diversification of energy prepares for the future. It helps local economies by creating jobs.

      It is possible that GWB has an economic interest here, with T Boone Pickens his old oil buddy, but I frankly don't care where the suggestion comes from.

      The time for weaning ourselves off oil is now. It will take decades so the sooner we start the better.

      Why should we freaking pay folks that run BP to destroy our eco system, take all the profits and stick tax payers with the bill.

      Where are the tea party people now. They should be screaming loudly about bailing out BP.

        Just like reactionary Republican a-holes. Wait until millions of gallons of shit hits the fan, and then react. But when mere thousands of gallons of shit hit the fan, just ignore and call for more deregulation.

        If it were up to me, someone would toss Bush, Cheney and all their relatives, and anyone who shares any significant gene pairs into the most oil-concentrated part of the Gulf.

        No, scratch that. They should be diced up and used in the next Junk Shot operation (possibility of success no matter)

      has been strangely silent on the topic considering he couldn't stop running his gator about the underwear bomber.  His daughter even seems to have duct taped her mouth shut...
