    So all the guy needs is a phone call if he's on your "side"



    Your favorite guy granted a state of emergency 2 days prior to Katrina.

    He, by YOUR definition, was "on this" before "day one".....



    Nice hypocrisy.

    Hey, if it quacks like a duck...

    I agree, it is foolish to engage you, to expect anything different from you that might reflect facts. Carry on pal.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Such a mouth foamer.... BTW.... by my timeline, Obama was 9 days late compared to your man Bush in calling a state of emergency...



    But let not that get in the way of the hackery show.

    nick rahall's natural resources is "putting the obama admin's regulation of the industry square in his crosshairs"

    Democratic chair presses White House on spill - Jake Sherman - POLITICO.com

    (it'd be a big political plus for the bluedog back home in west virginia---ask alan mollohan)

    rahall was a big name, one of the most sought after centrists, in the health care wars

    rahall is hauling mms before his hearings on wednesday, how embarrasing

    by then the spill will have been spewing 36 days, 18 hours, 20 minutes, 14 seconds...

    We are approaching day 40...oil is still spewing and it has reached the shores. So basically...Obama and his team have done as much to be 'on this' as I have done.

    This is just so incredibly typical. Clintons fema takes 4+ weeks to respond and thats acceptable. Bush's FEMA responded the day after the hurricane hit in mississippi, 3 days in NOLA...and it was a total disaster. 40 days after the oil well explosion the oil is still flowing and the cleanup efforts are nil...but your guy is 'on it since day one'.

    This doesnt really say ANYTHING about Obama. It says an awful lot about you.

    Who, exactly, is complaining? Besides you, I mean.

    It appears that you feel the government should have hundreds of oil drilling experts on hand at all times, ready to jump. I dare say, if there were no oil spill, you'd be whinging about the government employing useless oil rig scientists when it should be focusing on running the country during this period of intense global economic and cultural conflict.



    Your questions are patently absurd. Do you know how dumb you sound?



    Sounds more like you bashing a president you don't like, for any reason you can dream up, to me.
    You believe the Obama lies with no proof anything was done.

    Is that why Louisiana has to do things on their own.

    Feds have done nothing to stop the gusher or to prevent the oil from coming to shore.

    All the feds have done is point the finger and complain it is not being stopped.


    Louisianans take oil cleanup in own hands as frustration mounts


    Frustrated Louisianans took the oil cleanup into their own hands Sunday, heading out in boats to lay protective booms around a bird sanctuary threatened by a black tide.

    "We're going out to Cat Island right now where a thousand pelicans are breeding," Billy Nungesser, president of the coastal Plaquemines Parish told AFP.

    Some of the birds at the island sanctuary have already been coated in oil and have carried it back to the nests, he said.

    While they're not trying to rescue the oiled birds for fear of doing more harm than good, Nungesser said local residents refused to stand idly by as more oil lapped up into the fragile wetland.

    "Our crews are out there laying the absorbent boom," he said, adding that he couldn't understand why BP and the Coast Guard weren't doing more to protect his coastal parish.

    In neighboring Jefferson Parish an emergency manager commandeered all 40 boom-laying boats hired by BP which were sitting idly at Grand Isle as oil sloshed onto beaches.

    Bloggers and callers to a radio talk show cheered the dramatic action late Saturday night, promising the official their votes if he sought elective office.

    Earlier in the day, WWL-AM radio station repeatedly replayed a taped interview in which a Coast Guard official in Terrebonne Parish took the blame for not ordering BP to do more, then flippantly said: "I guess I'm just slow and dumb."

    Frustration has reached a boiling point as more delays stymie efforts to cap a pipe which has been gushing oil into the Gulf of Mexico from the wreckage of a BP-leased rig some 52 miles off the coast of Louisiana since April 22.

    Favorable winds and currents have kept the bulk of the massive slick offshore, but the heavy oil began to seep into coastal marshes on Wednesday and some 66 miles (106 km) of coastline and 30 acres (12 ha) of marshes are now affected.

    The amount of oil being suctioned up to a waiting boat from a mile-long tube has slowed to 1,360 barrels a day from the previous average of about 2,100, BP said Sunday.

    Meanwhile, a "top kill" attempt to plug the leak by injecting heavy drilling mud into the pipe which was originally set to begin Sunday has now been delayed to Wednesday.

    The delays have fueled the outrage of locals, who are already wary of relying on government as a result of the chaos which followed after Hurricane Katrina tore through coastal Louisiana in 2005.



    Notice Obama and the Feds are doing nothing

    Since day 1 and you believe him?


    Obama Fiddled While the Gulf Burned - HUMAN EVENTS


    President Obama has tried to sugarcoat his administration’s inadequate and tardy response to the worst oil spill in our nation’s history. His claim that the administration has been “all-hands-on-deck ... from day one” is laughable.

    The Deepwater Horizon well exploded on April 20, but the President did not make his first remarks on the incident until nine days later and finally visited the region May 2, 12 days after the massive explosion. In the days after the spill, the administration did not express much concern and the Coast Guard commander for the region said that “we do not see a major spill emanating from this incident.” Instead of sending the “A-team” to the region, the President dispatched a deputy Interior secretary.

    Prior to addressing the Gulf disaster, the President found time to blast Wall Street and the governor of Arizona, advocate Earth Day awareness, meet with the Rev. Billy Graham, pitch racial politics in his weekly radio address, prepare his jokes for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, make a racially divisive video to activate his political coalition for the 2010 election and hold an impromptu news conference on a range of topics. In this news conference, the President discussed everything from the Supreme Court to immigration, but did not mention the disaster in the Gulf.

    It was not until April 29 that President Obama deemed the massive explosion right off the coast of Louisiana to be worthy of comment. It was at that point that his administration finally realized that they had underestimated the severity of the explosion. Only then did the administration move into a frenzied state of “action” trying to cover-up their initial mistakes, inaction and utter ineptitude.

    Commercial fishermen in Louisiana could have been utilized from the early hours of this crisis to deploy boom and protect delicate marshland. Sadly, there was an unacceptable delay and even now, not enough fishermen are being used and many continue to wait for a call to action that has not come. In addition, the controlled burn of the oil was not started until four days after the second leak was discovered.

    Five years ago when Hurricane Katrina hit, government officials at all levels failed the citizens of the state. This time, there are similar failures from government officials who waited much too long to take action. Dealing with an emergency effectively requires decisive leadership. On that important test, President Obama failed miserably. Of course, the liberal mainstream news media has given the President a pass. If a Republican President had neglected such a crisis for so long, there would be a media firestorm.

    During his visit to Gulf, the President once again pinned the blame on British Petroleum (BP), the operator of the well. Yet, this blame game does nothing to help Louisiana deal with another Katrina-like threat. Of course, BP will have to pay for the damages and is ultimately responsible, but when the Gulf Coast is threatened by a massive oil spill, it becomes the responsibility of the President of the United States as well. Our federal government has many more resources than BP and those resources should have been deployed from the first day, not nine days after the explosion

    The President’s six-hour visit does not offer much satisfaction to our fishing industry which has been shutdown by this incident. Approximately 30% of the seafood consumed in this nation comes through the wetlands of Louisiana, so this disaster will impact retailers, restaurant owners and consumers throughout the country.

    Today, the estimates are that the well is leaking 5,000 barrels per day, but the President’s point person for the disaster Coast Guard Commander Adm. Thad Allen said the leak could increase 2,000% to an unimaginable level of 100,000 barrels per day. The environmental consequences of such a monumental mountain of oil are too scary to contemplate.

    So, let me get this straight. In your world, when someone speaks is some kind of indicator as to when they started any actions? You BP lovers (Vance and rev) only embarrass yourselves when you try to deflect responsibility for this catastrophe from BP to Obama.

    Carry on privates.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
