BP's oil spill is getting bigger and messier every day. I've been waiting to post on the topic until I could see a clear political debate forming. "Ick" and "ack" are pretty much universal, bipartisan reactions. The politics are evolving.
The questions are: Is the Obama administration doing enough? Have they wasted too much time by waiting for BP to plug this hole? Does there need to be more oversight over the oil industry? What are the implications for energy politics? Is anybody going to say "Drill, Baby, Drill" ever again? Will this mean more money that goes to green energy? Who is going to pay for this clean up? Does BP have enough money to pay restitution and to collect all the crap from the ocean?
