Rudy Giuliani was on Hannity last night and had a good point after being asked about the Obama administration’s response to the oil spill:
It couldnâ€™t be worse. This would be an example if you taught Leadership 101 of Exactly NOT what to do. Minimize it at first. Two days after or three days after it happened, go on vacation. Heâ€™s been on vacation more often than by far heâ€™s been to Louisianaâ€¦ The reality is the Administration has made every mistake it could possibly make right down to the criminal investigation of BPâ€¦ And, if theyâ€™re being criminally investigated then why are we allowing them to do it? If we got a bunch of criminals doing it then why are we allowing them to do it?
Think of a bank that was robbed and trashed. The police suspect it was somebody who works a the bank, and they’re in the midst of investigating — but until the investigation is complete they’re letting the suspect keep the keys to the bank and the safe so he can go in there alone every night and try to clean up the mess that was made.

Update: Director James Cameron’s offer to help plug the leak has been declined. So much for getting footage for the opening credits of “Titanic II: Deepwater Horizon.”
Update II: Live video of the riser pipe after it’s been cut being prepared for the lowering of a cover that will hopefully be able to capture most of the leaking oil and bring it to the surface — keep your fingers crossed:
