None of that oil should have ever reached shore.

Based on this article, the poll doesn’t say that Obama’s response was worse than Bush’s. Did they even ask people that question? All this says is that 6% more people view the response negatively. It doesn’t say which they think is worse.

Make no mistake, I wasn’t even aware that Obama had responded to the spill.

Let me be clear, the only thing I have seen him do is party.

Moreover, President Tar Ball sucks.

States Rights!! Jindel had to beg....and I'll bet Obama loved every bit of it.

Same thing with the brave Governor of Arizona in re; to immigration..."Beg Me"...

?Me thinks he's taking the "I Won" a bit too far.

Every national news outlet signed off the first night of Katrina basically saying that New Orleans had dodged a bullet... everyone including Bush went to sleep thinking everything was ok...

When we all woke up the next morning everything had done to hell in a handbasket... Bush and other rescuers started to respond ... but then moronic people in New Orleans started SHOOTING at the people trying to help them. This cause several days of delays before rescuers could be safely brought in without fearing for their lives.

Compare that to what Obama has done... it's been like a month and a half now... and all he has done is pick up a few tar balls and appoint a commission to study the problem between his golf games and parties.

RE :”A month and a half after the spill began, 69 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll rate the federal response negatively. That compares with a 62 negative rating for the response to Katrina two weeks after the August 2005 hurricane.

I still think Bush was a crappy president but a poll like this REALLY warms my heart, finally Obama and democrats are getting what they deserve. They demigod-ed Katrina to death and this is justice, sweet smelling justice too. (Glad it aint President Mccain.)

"I love the sweet smell of oil in the morning staining the Obama legacy" to steal from Apocalypse Now.

Unfortunately, by the time the next presidential election happens, this will all be forgotten.

I think they wanted oily birds and spoiled beaches to justify Cap n Tax, seize oil companies and pursue their “green economy”. Fortunately it is backfiring on them, bigtime!

Media fail repeatedly to mention the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 giving POTUS complete responsibility for immediate action in cleaning up an oil spill.
