Remember the Oil Spill in the Gulf?....
How soon we forget (unless the prez was GW)...

"Obama goes to La. to address oil spill" May 2

"President Obama made his first visit to the Gulf Coast since the recent oil spill Sunday as administration officials defended their response to what could be the nation's worst offshore spill in at least 21 years....

Speaking briefly in driving rain, Obama called it a "massive and potentially unprecedented environmental disaster" that could take many days to stop. He said the priorities are to plug the spill and protect the estuaries.

It was the first time since the April 20 explosion of a BP oil drilling platform that Obama devoted a full day to the gusher. Aides worked to prevent comparisons to President George W. Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which damaged Bush's presidency....

Waiting for him there were environmental activists such as Michael Gravitz of Environment America, who said the risk of an oil spill should have been recognized earlier.

"The administration didn't cause this thing, but after a while, people will look at them and say,'Where are the results?' " Gravitz said.

Napolitano, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen fanned out on the Sunday news shows to defend the administration's response.

They said 70 vessels and 1 million feet of boom to collect oil were prepositioned, a command center quickly set up and efforts made to coordinate with state and local officials.

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said the administration still could do better. "The federal government has leaned forward since day one," she said on CBS' Face the Nation, "but obviously it's not enough."

"Amid criticism over oil spill, Obama will visit Gulf Coast again"

By Anne E. Kornblut
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, May 26, 2010

"... Obama will also travel to Louisiana on Friday, the White House said. He will get an update on the oil spill response and cleanup and will meet with residents who have been personally affected by the oil gushing from a damaged undersea well head, officials said.

... The show of greater attentiveness from the president comes five weeks after an April 20 explosion on a rig off the Louisiana shore killed 11 workers and triggered the oil spill. It also follows criticism from Republicans, and some Democrats, that the administration has not done enough in the crisis.

Although senior administration officials have voiced growing disapproval of BP... the mission of the Friday trip is not to declare war on the firm....Instead, the official said, the trip will demonstrate that Obama is "on top of it."

Democrats inside and outside the White House are clamoring for more, though....

Obama's last trip to the Gulf was last-minute, brief and had little lasting effect. He flew in and out of New Orleans on May 2, drove two hours to a Coast Guard station and got a briefing before taking a quick helicopter tour. He did not even see the oil slick.

...Democratic strategist James Carville, who lives in New Orleans and has been highly critical of the administration's actions, said he is "glad" Obama is coming.

But he said the president has been too measured overall. "Eleven people are killed because of multinational corporate greed, malfeasance and possibly criminal negligence? I think Franklin Roosevelt would have jumped out of his wheelchair and run down here to be in the middle of this."

<quoted text>Let me try this one more time as it is my Christian duty. "Sorry, stupid, but that does not address abortion nor homosexuality...we have a religious difference: you baggers seem to think you are God; I know you're not. Here are the only condemnations the only you hypocrites claim to support ever made (red print): Did Jesus condemn anyone, in the sense of saying "You will go to Hell?"? These are the only instances of the top of my head where Jesus comments on people in this tone. Matthew 26:24 (Douay Rheims) 24 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man shall be betrayed: it were better for him, if that man had not been born. Matthew 18:6 (Douay Rheims) 6 But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 19:23 (Douay Rheims) 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples: Amen, I say to you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 23:27 (Douay Rheims) 27 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones, and of all filthiness."
It's not just that there's no condemnation of homosexuality or abortion, it's also the fact that you can't recognize yourself in the condemned that might be a problem. Oh, well, it's your eternity.
When Satan himself tempted Jesus in the desert, he also tried to use the Word of God to make his point. Jesus made it backfire on him. Your words are hollow to anyone who knows the Bible. You might convince those ignorant of it, of course.

Why don't you just agree to disagree.

Those Black Muslim Panther ghetto rats are showing up as "observers" at polling places all over the country. Fortunately, many Navy Seals and other military members are showing up as observers as well to "level the playing field". Let's have a rumble!!

With days to go before the 2012 elections, Ohio Senate hopeful Josh Mandel is taking heat from an unexpected source: his in-laws.
On Monday, Mandel’s wife’s cousins took out an ad in the Cleveland Jewish News blasting Mandel for his anti-gay policies. Nine cousins signed the open letter, including members of the Ratner family, a prominent Jewish family in Cleveland that Mandel married into, according to Salon.

The guy's such a creep he could be Ryan's brother, separated at birth. The Rovian Kochs have outspent Sharrod Brown by over twelve to one and still can't make the deal that this wimp's worthy. That one should be a real bell-weather as to just how much Husted managed to cook the books if he's even close in the final tally.

Sorry, Ab, but Jesus did not say "the devil can quote scripture for his own purpose." That's one of the reasons I can let you "holier than thou" haters get by with your ignorance, you use it against others.
