No what people want the government to do is what the founders wanted them to do. The waters that the deep water oil rigs are in, ARE FEDERAL WATERS. It was the federal governments responsibility to oversee them. Ho yea they did not need more regulations THEY WERE ALL ALREADY THERE. They just needed to enforce those that were ALREADY THERE.
Lets face facts if this was in shallow waters the leak would have been pluged long ago. The question should be who is it that has stopped us from getting that easy oil??????? Yep you guessed it, the liberials.
Lets face some other facts, this happen under Obamas appointed people not Bush appointed people. The rig "deepwater Horizon" which failed, was just inspected JUST weeks before the explosion and now leak. It was not Bush appointments that gave that rig waviers that was Obamas appointments that did that. Hey just like if this thing would have happen under Bush this would be his fault. Here so even the dumb twits can get it if Ken Salazar was a Bush appointment then it would be Bushs fault. Now if Ken Salazar was a Bush appointment and then Obama had the chance to reappoint someone else but did not, then it would be both of their faults. Because one would have hired the incompetent jackass and the other kept the incompetent jackass on.
That is not what happen here though, that incompetent jackass was all Obamas doing.
As to Candlemans question, you need to look at your history to understand exactly what the founders wanted and tried before, to understand that they had tried to totally limit the federal governments polocy making. The founders found that total anarchy is what followed and almost tore the country apart. So what they did was include certain federal government rights over the states. There should be no one here that can suggest that the federal government has NOT gone way past what the founders wanted them to in control of the people.
