Oil Cleanup Sham?: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight a Louisiana politician accuses BP of shipping in cleanup workers for Pres.  Obama's visit and then letting them leave right after he did. We're keeping them honest.  Plus, the death of child actor star Gary Coleman and more.

    Frank from Talhahsee has a great idea, and if you want something done right, do it yourself. It is time to stop being bullied by BP and thier lawyers and for the locals and those who are not locals to join together and use whatever means at their disposal and start to clean up the mess themselves.
    Look at what the people of Fargo did to keep thier city from flooding. They worked together.
    Obama's visit means nothing unless he wants to muster the coast guard and navey to help, but my bet he won't. Let's do it ourselves or we will be looking at the dead Gulf of Mexico before we know it.
    unimaginable, yes...but what do you think is going to happen if nothing is done and the oil keeps pumping out.
    Keep the pressure on Anderson...

    To all the people of my country (USA) and the rest of the world; keep this forfront in your mind; the oil companys are very powerful financially, and they believe that they can do whatever they want and no one can stand in their way. Wrong ! remember! they have all that money because of all of us, the people (customers); without us, they would have 'no money", their filthy rich because of us !

    I dont want to hurt the sentiment here, but i hear that BP is also planing a defense strategy that EPA and MMS and other government organizations did contribute to the crisis as much as they did

    they said government agencies helped elevate the situation vs. moving the emergency management thats available

    Go Figure!!!

    Why aren't the fisherman that are out of work being hired by BP to help with the clean up? I am sure they could use the money and would do a great job with the clean-up. I don't understand.

    @Starr I think somehwere around 40 percent of this country's seafood. Maybe or was it 22 percent. Topkill they are pumping drilling mud, monitoring, then trying the junk shot, the monitoring, then pumping drilling mud.That's what I gathered from the press conf this afternoon.

    Those aerial pictures of the marsh show the vulnerability of the marshes.

    That's a good invitation from James Carville. Just to get around and talk to people. Glad to hear New Orleans is doing well.

    Science on the fly...I really don't know how to respond to that. The anger I have for BP is unprecedented. Thanks to the CNN reporters sharing their reporter's notes.

    Where to begin.Somebody listen to Charlie Melencon and James Carville. Orginally from Kentucky moved to Lafayette, La 1989. Career as a Real Estate Broker in the last 38 days during my daily travels my heart drops to know and see the many shrimp boats on land. Katerina can not shed a light on this catastrophe event. Stop pointing the blame, sitting on capital hill wasting time and help our people in Louisiana.You think the federal government has foreclousures now. Just wait a couple of months...The lives of this culture will die.......quicky...unless you have lived and shared your life with the most wonderful culture you will never understand.......

    I don't see a multi-faceted approach – why aren't there big oil tankers out there pulling the oil off the surface; why isn't there activity at every breech of the booms; why is it that their actions seem sequential – if this is a war room approach they are missing major elements of this attack on the problem.
