More on Fallout from Obama-BP Gulf Oil Disaster
Conservative Examiner ^ | 6/6/2010 | Anthony G. Martin

Posted on 06/06/2010 11:38:47 AM PDT by Welshman007

Sources along the Gulf Coast in Louisiana have reported to Conservative Examiner that citizens, private relief groups, photographers, bloggers, and citizen journalists have been barred from access to the region.

Only 'authorized' personnel are allowed, and that includes those journalists that are deemed 'authorized' by the federal government.

Conservative Examiner has also learned that the few authorized journalists and photographers that are allowed in the area have been instructed by the Feds not to write anything critical of the Obama Administration's response--or shall we say the lack thereof--to the crisis. Photographers have also been instructed to limit photographs of the devastation.

These actions by the federal government do nothing but raise suspicions even more about the nature of this disaster and the scenario that led to it.

Those suspicions are certainly not abated at all by reports such as this, in the Telegraph of the U.K.:

Someone really needs to tell Paul that the hair dye at his age just looks ridiculous.

At the same time that the “take-charge” Feds shouldered the responsibility for regulating drilling in the Gulf, they shouldered the responsibility to make sure Americans did not suffer needlessly from disasters related to that drilling.

Yes, BP should ultimately pay for the clean up, but the Federal Government should have moved quickly to make sure the damage was minimized as much as possible.

Has Obama declared a state of emergency in Louisiana yet?

One day I had a song pop into my head:

Salt and Peppers shakers we
Shake together in perfect harmony
Side by side on the dinner table
Oh, Lord, why don’t we?

Frank Sinatra: "You are black, and I am white
Life's an Eskimo Pie, let's.. take a bite!
That was groovy thinkin'
Lincoln, when you set them freeeeeee...

We all know
Cats are the same
Maine to Mexico.
Good. Bad.
Guys and chicks!"

Stevie Wonder: "I am dark, and you are light."
Frank Sinatra: "You are blind as a bat, and I have sight!
Side by side, you are my amigo,
Negro, let's not fiiiiiiiight!"

Stevie Wonder: "Ebony, ivory
Living in perfect harmony."

Frank Sinatra: "Salt and pepper,
Sammy and Dean
Stevie and me are peachy keen!"

Stevie Wonder: "You are white."
Frank Sinatra: "You are black - and who cares!"
Who cares, baby!

Yes but you would have to care about the American people to do that and we all know that that POS that now occupies the WH despises us.

You know, in all fairness, I must admit that the president, any president, lacks the technical knowledge of how to plug this hole.

But this is why I, as president, would employ pressure tactics of the greatest sort to motivate those who do have that knowledge to come up with it and fast.

Imagine the president of the united states sitting at a desk on a beach surrounded by crude oil washing up day after day after day...

That would be pressure. If Obama did that, then I might believe that he is mad. Watching him lollygag around at Paul McCartney shows makes me think that he doesn’t give even a single sh!t about what’s going on in the gulf.

Ah that is a good point. This is the action I would take though. Every day I wake up, this is the first thing that jumps into my head, infuriating me every single day. If I was president, that is where my desk would be. I would view this as the most important item on my agenda bar none. My staff would be there every day too, and if they didn’t like it, they can find another, less important job.

There would never be any need for me to say, “Make no mistake, no one is angrier than me”. People would see me sitting at my desk on the beach night and day in stinking oil and say, “Wow, that president is angry, and he is on the job”.
