I see there's someting like 30 countries offering Oil Spill Cleanup assistance but Maggot Obama refused to take ANY OF THEM UP until today when he grudgingly permitted 12 or so of 30 to help.

What a clown!

Obama now owns oil spill; but that's Not comforting

By Cheri Jacobus -
06/17/10

It’s his.

Obama now owns the BP mess. His Oval Office oil spill speech was a colossal disaster. Far from being uplifting or helpful, it disappointingly added fuel to the fire. Devoid of answers, solutions or leadership, the president’s speech was a stark reminder of why campaigns are tough, invasive and a brutal examination of a candidate’s experience and record. Or at least should be.

If only candidate Barack Obama had been truly scrutinized and thoroughly vetted to lead the nation and be commander in chief, perhaps we could have been spared this sad, scary failed test of a president. An unusually gifted speaker when addressing his utopian dreams for the nation, when faced with addressing the reality of the job of president of the United States, the former community organizer falls frighteningly short of being even merely adequate in his current employment.

Couldn’t he just have scored a lucrative cable television talk show instead? He seems far more suited for that role.

While Obama promised to “make BP pay” for the gusher in the Gulf, it struck me as something a president would say regarding terrorists, or would-be terrorists and those who aid them. But not this president.

Americans are focused on stopping the oil from pouring into the Gulf of Mexico and onto our beaches, killing untold wildlife, the tourism industry, the fishing industry and real estate in the coastal states.

But our useless president wants us to rally around him in his call for revenge, rather than results. The speech didn’t just leave his supporters in the media stunned. It stunned all of us, and it’s hard to shock a country that’s been assaulted for nearly 60 days straight by the oil and this impotent president.

Obama Is Delusional on Gulf Oil Spill Cleanup Efforts

June 16, 2010

By Bonnie Erbe, Thomas Jefferson Street blog

I’m all for optimism, but is it possible President Barack Obama is being a bit too optimistic in his promises about the Gulf oil disaster? This week he told reporters that,

"Things are going to return to normal" along the stricken Gulf Coast and the region's fouled waters will be in even better shape than before the catastrophic BP oil spill.

When? In the third millennium?

This is optimism on steroids. Marshlands and inland waterways have been destroyed. Habitats for fish and wildlife will be oil-covered for decades if not longer.

Jobs in critical U.S. food and other industries will not return to normal in our lifetimes. We won’t even know the extent of the damage until months or years after the oil stops pouring into the Gulf from the pipeline that used to be part of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. And the president promises us “better”?

Obama: Snake Eyes of Snake-bit?

Americans want leaders on whom the sun shines.

June 18, 2010
By Peggy Noonan

The lack of adequate federal government response appropriately redounds on him.

In a Wall Street Journal investigation published Thursday, reporters Jeffrey Ball and Jonathan Weisman wrote the federal government at first moved quickly, but soon "faltered." "The federal government, which under the law is in charge of fighting large spills, had to make things up as it went along." It hadn't anticipated a spill this big.

The first weekend in May, when water was rough, contractors hired by BP to lay boom "mostly stayed ashore," according to a local official. "Shrimpers took matters into their own hands, laying 18,000 feet of boom," compared to about 4,000 feet by BP's contractors.

The administration's failure to take impressive action after the spill dinged its reputation for competence.

The president's failure to turn things around Tuesday night with a speech damaged his reputation as a man whose rhetorical powers are such that he can turn things around with a speech. He lessened his own mystique.

Reaction among his usual supporters was, in the words of Time's Mark Halperin, "fierce, unforeseen disappointment."

Dan Froomkin of the Huffington Post called the speech "profoundly underwhelming," a "feeble call to action."

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich called the speech "vapid."

Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times said the president looked "awkward and robotic."

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann famously said "It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days."

Chris Matthews scored "a lot of meritocracy, a lot of blue ribbon talk." Mr. Olbermann, on Mr. Obama's well-written peroration: "It's nice but, again, how? Where was the 'how' in this speech when the nation is crying out for 'how'?"

Obama still impressed with “Academia” over “Real World”

Americans want leaders on whom the sun shines.

June 18, 2010
By Peggy Noonan

Two growing weaknesses showed up in small phrases.

The president said he had consulted among others "experts in academia" on what to do about the calamity. This while noting, again, that his energy secretary has a Nobel Prize. There is a growing meme that Mr. Obama is too impressed by credentialism, by the meritocracy, by those who hold forth in the faculty lounge, and too strongly identifies with them. He should be more impressed by those with real-world experience. It was the "small people" in the shrimp boats who laid the boom.

And when speaking of why proper precautions and safety measures were not in place, the president sternly declared, "I want to know why." But two months in he should know. And he should be telling us. Such empty sternness is ... empty.

MSNBC Trashes Obama's Address: Compared To Carter, "I Don't Sense Executive Command"

June 15, 2010

Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Howard Fineman react to President Obama's Oval Office Address on the oil spill. Here are the highlights of what the trio said:

Olbermann: "It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days."

Matthews compared Obama to Carter.

Olbermann: "Nothing specific at all was said."

Matthews: "No direction."

Howard Fineman: "He wasn't specific enough."

Olbermann: "I don't think he aimed low, I don't think he aimed at all. It's startling."

Howard Fineman: Obama should be acting like a "commander-in-chief. "

Matthews: Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel prize. "I'll barf if he does it one more time."

Matthews: "A lot of meritocracy, a lot of blue ribbon talk."

Matthews: "I don't sense executive command."

Employment & Obama Environmental claims at Odds

JUNE 28, 2010
By JAMES R. HAGERTY And AMOL SHARMA

U.S. Agency Won't Back Sale of Coal Equipment; Company Says That Costs Jobs

For the second time in recent weeks, the Obama administration's environmental policies have clashed with its efforts to boost American jobs.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank, a federal body charged with promoting U.S. exports with loan guarantees, decided against backing a sale of coal-mining equipment to an Indian company. The guarantees were denied amid the agency's concerns about the mine's environmental impact.

Bucyrus International Inc. said it was likely to lose orders totaling as much as $600 million for mining machinery from a subsidiary of Reliance Power Ltd. of India because of a decision by the Ex-Im Bank against providing loan guarantees to help finance the purchase. The orders were contingent on obtaining the guarantees, which would cut the cost of financing for Reliance, part of a conglomerate headed by Anil Ambani.

A person familiar with the situation in India said Reliance has chosen not to purchase the mining equipment from Bucyrus because of the bank's decision.

The bank's chairman cited Obama administration policy against backing projects with heavy carbon emissions.

The decision means "throwing 1,000 jobs in the ditch," Tim Sullivan, chief executive officer of the South Milwaukee, Wis., maker of mining equipment, said in an interview. Bucyrus cited an estimate that the order would create or protect 984 jobs in 13 U.S. states.
