Gulf turning ‘unbelievably bad'
 And the Dems are too timid to use it against the GOP

With a quick solution ominously uncertain, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is on track to become an 
unprecedented economic and environmental disaster with millions of gallons of oil destroying an ecosystem as well as a way of life.

BP America said Monday that it would take another 75 days to finish one of two relief wells it’s drilling to shut down the flow.

By then, if the spill doesn’t worsen and the relief well stops the leak, some 20 million gallons of oil will be swirling in the Gulf,
nearly double the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989.

Unlike the Alaska spill, which coated a rock-strewn bay, BP’s oil will cling to a spongelike coast, entering the pores 
of mangrove forests and sea-grass beds and the breeding grounds for crabs, shrimp and oysters.

Already some of the richest fishing grounds of the Gulf are off-limits, idling thousands of commercial fishermen.

Some restaurants in New Orleans and elsewhere are either out of homegrown oysters or are down to less than a week’s supply.

In Mississippi, charter boats and hotels are reporting declines in business.

“It’s going to be unbelievably bad,” said Jeremy Jackson, a professor of oceanography at the Scripps Institution 
of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif. “This is a problem that won’t go away for a decade.”

THIS is what happens when Democrats let the greedy oil companies run wild.
THIS is what happens when government "gets out of the way."

Here is their plan - another 4,000 oil platforms to kill the Gulf of Mexico for centuries.

I wish I wasn't stuck in a party of sacless cowards who are too scared to speak up.
I wish my president wasn't bending over backwards to please BIG oil and the GOP bastards. 
I miss the nineties, when Monica and how-to-spend-the-surplus were America's biggest problems.

But half the Democrats and the whore media and all the Republicans HATED the nineties.

Half the Democrats said, "What could be worse than another Clinton in the White House?"

How could I be so wrong?     I can answer that, Bart!
