Cleanup can take YEARS

Yes, that is the newest report for the oil cleanup in Louisiana.  YEARS.  Let me repeat that one more time for those supporters of the politicians down there:

This cleanup could take years!

And of course, we have the infamous "how much blame can we put on the President" game, in a similar move to Bush and Katrina.  To put it bluntly, you can't talk down a hurricane and you can't talk down an oil spill.  It just can't happen.  The fact that it took Obama his obligatory week (while spending it at a press dinner) only makes things look worse.

Obviously, something should be done on a federal level with this, dinner or no dinner.  We have an ecological disaster the like of which we haven't seen in years and the "leader of the free world" is trying to talk to it for lack of a better analogy.

If anything, this is an issue just based off of the Commerce clause of the Constitution.  This allows the Federal Government to take action in accordance with the Constitution.  Where is this?  Honestly, has anyone heard of anything being done there besides a bunch of speeches?

I'll not be surprised if BP gets a bailout from this either.  If anything, these people need to be financially liable for all the damage this is causing and will continue to cause for YEARS.  Instead, watch for a bailout to happen because it's "big oil."
