GLENN: Let me get this in and you'll learn more about this tonight on television and we'll put this in our free e mail newsletter as well. The gulf oil spill. The federal government didn't have what's called a fire boom. You know what a fire boom is? Fire boom is a structure. You can tow it out with a couple of bolts to one of these things and you set the oil on fire.
GLENN: It's why, it's why they haven't burned off the oil like they said they were going to in the first place.
STU: That was what they said in the first thing.
PAT: We're going to burn it off, kind of made sense to me.
GLENN: In fact, federal agencies have a law on the book that they are supposed to have. I think it's like ten of these around the Gulf Coast. In 1994 we have a law that was passed: Got to have these fire booms. So when this happened, American officials called Alaska American Marine and said do you have any of the fire boom things that we are supposed to be keeping by law? We could only find one in our country, one. The government then called BP and said, can you call some friends around the world? Do you have any, do you guys have any connections on any of these fire booms? The government was supposed to have fire booms. It's part of law. They didn't have them. They didn't do their job.
PAT: That doesn't sound at all familiar like what happened with the when they passed the law on building the border fence.
PAT: Where they had to by law build a border fence and then they didn't? That is completely dissimilar to that story. That's the good thing. The federal government never does that.
GLENN: You are mis... I think you are misreading this. I think you are looking at
PAT: No, it's not like it.
PAT: It's completely dissimilar.
GLENN: Look for the stories, look for the stories on fire booms. Look for the stories on fire booms. See if you find that anywhere.
PAT: Haven't seen one yet.
PAT: I keep wondering.
GLENN: That's really interesting.
PAT: I keep wondering why haven't they lit this on fire and burned off that oil.
GLENN: So we're covering we're now having a company call other countries begging to buy or borrow equipment from other countries.
PAT: For the federal government.
GLENN: The United States of America is calling other countries and saying, can we borrow some of that equipment of yours?
PAT: Jeez. Meanwhile demonizing BP all the while.
GLENN: And by the way, do you know who BP gave more money to in the campaign, in the election? Big, big contributor.
PAT: I'm going to guess.
GLENN: Barack Obama.
GLENN: Barack Obama. Just hoping that Barack Obama wouldn't put them out of business. Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids. See you tonight at 5:00 on the Fox News Channel.
