Dave (in MA)

Do we want BP to devote its resources to stopping the leak or do we want them to be circling the wagons and fighting a big legal battle?

Clarice

He's fit. Perhaps he ought to kick his own sorry ass first.

peter

Maybe you can find Bill Ayers at the LUN

Danube of Thought

Maybe he could practice by kicking Michelle's. Once he gets the hang of it, he can transition to the speed bag.

narciso

Is it just me, or I don't see too many of the right kind of expert on this team, in the LUN, at the end

D. Brooks

Please, Mr. President, please don't ruin your perfectly creased slacks when you start this "ass-kicking."

Thanks in advance.

E. Thomas

Since you're something of a god, Mr. President, would you mind easing off the quote-unquote ass-kicking rhetoric? Frankly it's just a bit too corporeal for you. How about replacing it with something more deific?

I don't know...how about smiting?

How could one miss?

My bet: Mrs. President OilSpill is the only one doing the @$$ kicking in that family.

PD

Family of BP boss under police protection

No doubt it is those violent tea-partiers behind the threats and hate mail.

"Maybe he could practice by kicking Michelle's."

Well, you see, there's this little problem of extracting the fooot...

Neptune

Don't be cutting in on my gig, punk!

PDinDetroit

Maybe Obama can borrow this guy's contraption?

LUN.

MikeS

Yup. When Obama finds out who is responsible, he's gonna smoke 'em out and bring 'em to justice, dead or alive. Cuz, if they're not with him they're greedy capitalist bastards.

LOL PD - that is a hoot! Too bad there wasn't one we could ship to the WH!

LouP

"Is it just me..." No, naricso, it's not just you. That group seems to be overloaded with the academic and credeniated idiot crowd. There may be one or two who are exceptions, but I didn't see anyone in either list that looked as if they had any experience at all in what they are trying to do.

Where's the representative experience from Mobil/Exxon, or Sun Oil, or any of a number of other outfits that actually have some experience in this kind of thing?

Ah-h-h-h! Glad you reminded me that those people don't have knowledge of the price of argula, or have creases in their pants. They wouldn't fit in with the WH soiree.

Frau Geburtstag

"No doubt it is those violent tea-partiers behind the threats and hate mail."

Or instead, the Goracle's climate-warmed roadies and Code Pink are involved.

It is in Virginia and only 4.5 hours away. I'm sure we could arrange a tour and a "live demonstration".

The LUN describes better how it works. From the LUN:

it could be possible to kick the ass of everyone in the United States of America in 34 days, 17 hours, 40 minutes.

It would take just a little over half that time for all the people who voted for Obama.

They are a little sensitive about all the hateful words about the British.

Eureferendum reminds us that it was an American company doing the drilling.

From the federal government's perspective, can someone explain to me why it matters at this stage what the flow rate of the oil spill is?

In the intial days after the explosion that info was obviously important, but now that we know its a major gusher, why should the flow rate impact on their decision making process? Whether its 5K or 20K barrels a day, the fact that the oil well has not been fully capped should be all that matters. Figure out what the government can do to mitigate the environmental and economic damages to the Gulf coast and do it.

Marija

Disaster. Very sad.

Obama says ready to "kick ass" over Gulf oil spill
Perhaps, now is too late...

Old Lurker

Tom R, I have not seen the section they refer to, but it has been reported that the eventual government claim/fine against BP will be based on the size of the spill.

Melinda Romanoff

OL-

And you can eliminate the share of the spill from the Diamond Offshore rig that's been leaking for the last six years.

The latest thing is he says he would have fired Heyward for his press statements, thanks
