Here we are on April 30th watching an out-of-control oil well, one mile deep in the Gulf of Mexico, spew oil towards America's coastal South.
As oil edged ever closer to the US mainland, there was little response from the U.S. Government. That is understandable, for the Feds and President Barack Obama were preoccupied bashing the state of Arizona and Wall Street's Goldman Saks. NINE DAYS after the oil rig exploded, the Obama Administration finally decided to try and take charge of the situation. An awful lot of oil was pumped into the Gulf of Mexico during those nine days.
NOT TO WORRY. Super Obamaman to the Rescue. At 4:37 pm this afternoon, President Obama strolled into the Rose Garden of the White House and promptly blamed BP for everything and promised that "under the law" he will see that BP be responsible for the clean-up operation. Man, It's a good thing George Bush is not the President in charge of this Man-made Disaster, or we would really have a big mess on our hands. Thank God for Barack Obama, it is all in his hands now.
President Obama never mentioned that he recently announced plans to open large swaths of the U.S. coast to offshore deep-well oil exploration. But he did say "Let me be clear: I continue to believe that domestic oil production is an important part of our overall strategy for energy security." Oh, thank goodness, but too bad he won't allow drilling in Alaska where there is more oil and the means of obtaining it are easier and less dangerous to the environment.
But President Obama did explain why he was AWOL from the Gulf Coast for ten days. It was a big misunderstanding. For nine days his staff suggested that he check out the happenings on the "Gulf." So for nine days straight, Obama headed out to play another nine holes of "GOLF."
Bye, Bye Miss American Pie, Drove my Government Motors Chevy to the Levee and the Levee was gone.
