NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE - PRESIDUNCE odumba's LACK OF ACTION & ROADBLOCKS TO STATES FOR CLEAN UP AND PREVENTION HAVE BACKFIRED!

HAS OUR IDIOT-IN-THIEF GIVEN THE $MILLION$ DOLLAR BRIBE BACK TO BP YET! HELL, HE HAS NOT EVEN TALKED TO THE PRESIDENT OF BP YET!

odumba CLAIMS TO BE IN CHARGE SINCE DAY ONE ... 52 DAYS LATER HE IS STILL DOING NOTHING BUT LIP SERVICE! WELL, HE IS PLAYING GOLF, PLAYING HOOPS WITH HIS HIGH PRICED HOMIES AT OUR WHITEHOUSE COUNTRY CLUB, VACATIONING, AND PARTYING WHILE THIS IS GOING ON - THAT SHOULD ACCOUNT FOR SOMETHING!

Soon after the explosion crippled the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, commencing the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Royal Dutch Shell Corporation offered BP and the Obama Regime the use of some fifty supertankers that were standing by, ready to go to skim up the oil and limit the damage from the spill.

BP and the Obama Regime refused.

Why would they refuse to use a proven method of oil spill containment in the opening days of the disaster?

Apparently, he would rather see the beaches of states that didn't vote for him befouled with oil than upset his union puppet-masters.

There's also the theory that Obama is just monumentally incompetent.

I believe both are one in the same.

Typical, BP will threaten to file for bankruptcy, if BP doesn't get ANOTHER big government BAILOUT. F that. Nationalize the oil companies. We now know other rigs are leaking and the oil companies tried to hide the truth. Enough BS already.

It's too bad. British Petroleum destroyed the Gulf and wants US socialism. BP should have stayed in the UK and dumped oil in the English Channel.

The gulf destroyed? Rubbish. Alarmist enviro-kook.

Why didnt B.O. accept the help offered, again?

When you puzzle over the incompetence of Dear Leader's handling of the gulf oil spill, the economy, healthcare reform, and just about everything else he touches, just remember this astute observation regarding Dear Leader's qualifications for the most powerful position in the world:

"Obama is the first president whose presidential campaign was his qualification for the office he sought."

The pre-Chairman Zero basically said as much before the 2008 Hopeychange election.

Using perhaps the royal plural -- a harbinger of grandiosity to come -- Obama cited the size, cost and complexity of his campaign: "Our ability to manage large systems and to execute, I think, has been made clear over the last couple of years," and "indicates the degree to which we can provide the kinds of support and good service that the American people expect."

With this profound ability to "manage large systems" and "execute," clearly the world is the limit for the Beginner-in-Chief -- at least in his dreams.

If this mess doesn't get cleaned up soon, this American disaster just may reach British shores by way of the Gulf Stream. This isn't even Bp's first spill in U.S. territory. They need to be kicked out!
