Is it me, or do you also notice a bit of irony in the public’s outrage over the oil spill?

First, before it happened, I was constantly hearing about how government needs to get out of our lives, that government should not impose regulations on free enterprise, and that the markets would correct themselves.  Conservatives alleged that the country was headed for socialism.

Now, almost all I hear is that the government was slow to act and irresponsible regarding the oil spill.  So which is it?

The government has no expertise in the drilling business, yet people are expecting the government to fix the problem.  I have just about decided to turn off the television for a few weeks, so that I do not have to hear about it anymore.  For a news junkie like me, that’s a surprise.
