Now that the oil leak has been plugged, we can now move on to the next step of figuring out legal liability. Check that — the leak hasn’t been plugged, but send in the lawyers anyway!

VENICE, La., May 31 (UPI) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder plans to visit areas affected by the gulf oil spill Tuesday and meet with state attorneys generals, officials said.

The White House has said the Justice Department was looking at the circumstances leading up to the April explosion and spill, but has shied away from saying the department is conducting an investigation.

However, the department said Holder plans to meet with U.S. prosecutors as well as state attorneys general from Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.

This is why the entire Obama administration is so perplexed by what to do about this spill. An oil leak isn’t something you can simply commandeer, bribe, shout down, intimidate or boycott. Anything beyond that, they’re completely stumped as to what to do, and it shows.

    An opportunity. In the words of Elwood Blues; "Blessed mother of acceleration don't fail me now!"

    Your anger is understandable but should one conspirator(gubmint) be able to sue another and benefit when they both are responsible for the accident/crime?($6.00 per gallon gas,anyone?)

    GM stock is still worthless,do we taxpayerz really want an oil company?

    Meanwhile,China and the commie world drill on in the Gulf,unabated.
