Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

If President Obama is establishing BP's liability, perhaps Chief Justice Roberts should administer the federal aspect of the response to minimize the disaster. It seems like somebody should, anyway.
c.f. Jay Leno: "President Obama said today he is going to use the gulf disaster to immediately push a new energy bill through Congress. I got an idea: how about first using the Gulf disaster to fix the Gulf disaster?"
UPDATE: The WSJ explains what's wrong with the Obama methodology, in case it isn't obvious.
UPDATE 2: Instapundit has a relevant graphic. I should add that I find the graphic more entertaining than fair; there's a limit to what we can expect out of a CEO. Except from a PR point of view, if there isn't anything he can do to help the people closer to the action, it should be fine for him to play a round of golf or catch a baseball game on occasion.
