Both BP and Pres Obama have said that BP will foot the entire bill. Hopefully, they will not use that as political cover. The eco-nuts used 3mile island as "political cover" to effectively shutdown nuclear energy and now we are decades behind where we could have been.

Nuclear production and safety

Reaching a power capacity of 63 gigawatts, the nuclear plants operated by the French utility EDF account for nearly 80% of French generated electricity. The competitiveness of nuclear electricity and the large volume of baseload electricity generated in France enable exports to other European countries, making EDF the world’s largest net exporter of electric power.
The 40 year experience of industrial operation of nuclear energy has provided France with a demanding and high quality safety culture. The Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN), which is responsible for regulating nuclear safety and radiation protection in order to protect workers, the public and the environment from the risks involved in nuclear activities, was established as an independent body.

Not necessarily.....

"Last month, Obama proposed new offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean from Delaware to central Florida, plus the northern waters of Alaska. Obama also wanted Congress to lift a drilling ban in the oil-rich eastern Gulf of Mexico, 125 miles from Florida beaches. Drilling already takes place in western and central areas of the Gulf of Mexico."

I believe BP is responsible for the entire cleanup bill based on laws enacted after the Valdez spill.

Do you read stuff and put your own words to what you read. It was the news paper saying that people will compare this to Katrina and they did not say that any coservatives had made this comparison. Learn how to read.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I'm glad BP is slated to foot the cleanup bill. Not sure this has an impact to "proposals." What Obama proposed is nowhere near actionable so there is time to reverse. All he has to do is say "After this disaster we'll going to re-think these proposals." Plus Dems haven't passed laws allowing for off-shore drilling yet. Whatever happens you can bet the GOP will oppose them.

HAHAHAHA! Try to blame Obama for this mess, just try it. No more drilling around here. There are plenty of oil reserves in the deserts of the world we don't ahve to destroy our precious gulf coast. Just pay for the oil you want instead fo assssinating presidentrs and trying to colonize Arabia.

Its really unbelievable they are not prepared to deal accidents, because they do happen. I hope with the "drill baby drill" mantra in Va being spewed, the Governor will take a look at this disaster and hold the companies to a higher safety standards and get assurance when accidents do happen the response is better than this.
Did you even read the article and all that BP is doing to contain and clean this up. The reason the leak is so bad is that a safty valve that is supose to cut off the oil failed. If we find out that is because BP did not maitain the equipment then bash away but until you actuall have some facts stop making stuff up.

So you are content with $5-$10/gallon gas, or would that be the man trying to oppress the world. Yes you are right, we should not try to use the resources available in our own sphere of influence, silly politicians...

Well as a person who is for offshore drilling I want a full investigation into this accident and how to prevent this from happening again before they start drilling off VA.

Dude once again you need to read before you post. SS was just responding to this comment and did not blame anything on Obama.

Set solid standards, regulate "appropriately", penalize those who fail to meet standards, and utilize our resources effectively. Seems like a rational policy could be achieved. No?

I'm with you, this really shouldn't turn into a huge political debate. We've got a major ecological disaster on our hands, let's get all resources necessary to handle the problem and worry about the who/what/why later.
