Takes responsibility for response, works to clean up mineral agency
No matter how you feel about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it is never okay to punish everyone for the fault of ‘1’. After decades of oil exploration, drilling and extraction from the deep ocean floor, there is far more evidence of its safety than the opposite. Once the leak is officially capped and determined to be safe, it will be time to do an independent investigation into what happened. To prematurely halt all domestic oil extraction is a bad idea. To do so during a severe economic downturn, speaks of utter insanity or a diabolic, ulterior motive.
Earlier I posted a story where they spoke about the only sure way to stop the leak would be to set off an explosion that would implode the site of the leak. Why is no-one asking this question? I am!

ASSOCIATED PRESS "In case you're wondering who's responsible, I take responsibility," President Obama said during a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Thursday. "It is my job to make sure that everything is done to shut this down. That doesn't mean it's going to be easy. It doesn't mean it's going to happen right away or the way I'd like it to happen. It doesn't mean that we're not going to make mistakes. But there shouldn't be any confusion here. The federal government is fully engaged, and I'm fully engaged."

Just weeks after he opened up new areas to offshore drilling, President Obama reversed course Thursday and suspended or canceled drilling projects in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic and the Arctic, as promising signs emerged from BP's latest effort to plug a gushing oil leak off the coast of Louisiana.
