The news from the Gulf doesn't get any better, nor do the responses to the ever-burgeoning disaster. It really shouldn't surprise us: some problems are beyond the ability of politicians to solve, especially the current crop we have. It's a matter for engineers and project managers to solve and all the government can really do is give them the means to solve the problem and then get the hell out of their way.
There's plenty of news about the governmental response that could merit a denunciation or two, but frankly my heart isn't in it. I hated it when the Left excoriated Bush during the aftermath of Katrina and while it's understandable why some of my colleagues on the Right would feel the need and the justification to return the favor to Barack Obama, it really doesn't do much to solve the problem.
