    That's your answer?

    Really?

    Do I need to explain just how lame that is?

    You lived up to my every expectation of a rightie. Congrats.

    Or maybe you were expecting an engraved letter from the President, hand delivered on a silver platter, explaining it all to you in monosyllabic terms?

    You WANT me to be butt hurt but I'm not. I just would like some answers from the White House.

    I'm sure I'd be turned down but your little attempt at smarmy repartee is boring. I'm asking for leadership. He's got none so far and you have no explanation which explains the nonsense your spewing.

    According to the White House they've been on the job since day one. If Obama's Spock, he's not handlilng this with much logic.

    You tell me. Isn't that posted on the White House website? How much money, equipment etc.? No answer?

    This is why we need leadership from Obama.

    I tried to reply but just couldn't without laughing. Sorry.

So what more do you want the President to do, exactly? Give us specifics, not your vague and whiny "But he's not doing enough! He's not informing me personally about every action being taken! WAAAAHHHH!" GIVE US SPECIFICS.
    Specifically: Leadership. You apparently don't know what that means. I'll explain: Leadership is the process where a person empowers, motivates and takes on the responsibility to get a task or tasks completed through others. There are 11 agencies but no leader to combine their efforts to get things done. Specifically.

    You are seriously misled. Obama is leading nothing.

    Quote Originally Posted by Glinda View Post

And we all know if Obama were to do such a thing, you'd complain that the only reason he was there was for a "photo op."
    Other than creating strawmen, you really have a talent for spin.

    I was equally critical of the lack of action, the lack of leadership and the confiscation of property. You'll be happy to know Nagin and Governor Blanco as well as the locality of NO were also part off the problem.

    There's nothing for me to be hurt about. Look you idoloize Obama and have your head up his ass so far you can taste his lunch. WE GET IT. He can do no wrong and he's the messiah according to you. I don't hate the man, I just want him to lead. He's not. Don't be so weak. If you can't debate, just say so.

    That's what I want. Given there's 11 agencies working around the clock since day 1... you'd think there'd be a lot of things to review given the scope of the disaster. I don't even NEED other specifics... I'd be happy with what I requested but even that simple task cannot be performed.

    Irrelevant until the Oil is stopped.

    I want Goverrnment out of my business 90% of the time. From a State's perspective, this isn't my business as it's not affecting me one iota. But it's a national tragedy so I weigh in. So yes, this is the exception where the Fed should step in and bring their weight and influence. They're just not. For 11 agencies working since day 1 - they're suck jerking each other off a lot and you seem to like it.

    I just don't and think they can do better.

    Now don't cry. It's okay when others don't agree. Buck up. You'll do better next time.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's Bush and BP. Can't pin this on anyone else according to the apologists.

    You asked....

    WHAT EXACTLY IS IT YOU OR THE CARIBOU BIMBO PROPOSE TO DO TO STOP THE OIL GUSHING FROM BP's SCREWUP?
    And I reminded you that Barry won the election.... I guess I was expecting too much from a mouth foaming liberal bull **** artist to get the connection.

    Carry on with your useless foul mouthed rants.

    Everything is Bushes fault.... they are so spring loaded to blame Bush that if this administration ever did anything right they'd **** up and still blame Bush.

    No. You want to blame Obama for things that were not of his doing and out of his control.

    Who do you think is running the show at the White House? Here's a hint: Obama doesn't have a puppet master like the previous president did. If you think Obama takes his marching orders from anyone else in his administration, you're dreaming.

    It's a fact. The Coast Guard was there right after the blast. It's unfortunate for you that this doesn't fit in with your "Everything Obama does is WRONG!" ideology, but it happens to be the truth.

    Again, the Coast Guard was on the scene immediately after the explosion, and they haven't left. Since April 20, they've been joined by tens of thousands of individuals from various other federal agencies and organizations trying to repair the damage BP has done.

    Exactly. THROUGH OTHERS. That's precisely what the man is doing – attacking the problem from multiple directions through the use of multiple federal agencies, in an attempt to complete the task of picking up the oil-soaked leftovers that BP is spewing all over the Gulf.

    "Idolize?" That's pretty funny! I may respect the man for taking on the task of trying to clean up the numerous disasters left in the wake of the previous administration, and do believe he's got the best interests of the American people at heart, but I sure as hell don't think he walks on water. He's just as fallible as anyone else is. The thing is, you see only in absolutes – if Obama's not fixing whatever problem right now, right away, this instant, and doing it in exactly the way you want it done, he's not only not leading, he's doing "nothing."

    As already noted, people in hell want ice water. I want a big bag of money and an end to Bush's oil war in Iraq. Sometimes you get what you want; sometimes you don't. In this case, Obama is doing what it is possible to do as a president at this time. That it doesn't satisfy your warped idea of what a president "owes" you, or fulfill your list of "wants" is of no concern to me or to him.

    Finally, I'm not the one expecting him to walk on the oil-soaked waters and fix everything, here… you are.
