S*! We need to tell Rush that this asshat has had so many catastrophes that we’ll have to make a list.

While I agree... unless the State Controlled Media picks up the story, (and they won’t), the masses will remain clueless and it won’t be an issue.

Katrina was only Katrina because the partisan media saw it as a jolly opportunity to flog Bush. All they’ll do to 0bama is cover for him.

Agree. And sometimes I think the lamestreams intentionally don’t pick up lines of thinking originated by Rush.

But what’s the alternative?

I think we have to be satisfied that Rush, Glenn, Savage ARE now the mainstream media. The New York Times will never cover that story either!

There’s no doubt that Bush would’ve already been strung up over this. This is a “back burner” news story just as Ft. Hood was/is. The masses are being cheerily led down the path of Marxism and propaganda. I agree it’s BO’s “Katrina”. But only to those who stay informed and remember the injustice by the media on Bush.

It’s worse at least with Katrian there was a 5 day notice to get out. Obama just sat in DC and did nothing. I heard an expert on TV yesterday say something about how the fire should not have had water used on it because he said that is what made the platform sink. Who scr*ed this up so badly?

Add to that, he certainly has no administrative abilities - if he did it would have manifested a long time ago.

“I think we have to be satisfied that Rush, Glenn, Savage ARE now the mainstream media. The New York Times will never cover that story either!”

The problem is, there are many more who only hear what the SCM tells them. I think this must be much like it was in Nazi Germany, and the average citizen won’t understand the nature of the problem until it’s too late.

One of the very few measures of joy I can take in this is that Obama hates the SCM. They will lick his boots right up until he kicks in their teeth.

They sent Axelrod out this morning to say that comparing this to Katrina is not FAIR.

Whine whine whine whine. Guess they’re all wee wee-ed up at the very mention of Katrina.

It’s so much worse. They waited ten days to respond. After all he just had to keep to his campaign schedule.

All the while he was hoping and praying the oil will reach the shores of LA.

That’s exactly what they are doing. The 0bots are out in full troll mode on the local news sites. They are also trolling other sites as well.

Jindal had a news conference and he didn’t come right out and say that zer0 was doing all he could to hinder things but that was the impression I got from his frustration at the federal response to his requests for assistance. The oil leak is in federal waters after all.

Bush was the lowest executive branch employee who was Republican. The responsibility was actually Mayor Nagin’s and Governor Blanco’s.

It was blank0’s fault for not initiating the federal response for Katrina. Katrina was an act of God unlike this oil leak.

This ongoing incident is happening in federal waters with an international company. So it seems that the feds should be doing much more to help get things under control than they are.

I agree with you. What ‘made’ Katrina, “Katrina” was the Media picking up every complaint and amplifying it in the arena of national politics. They won’t do any such thing with Obama. What they will do is create a situation in which Obama can continue to demonize energy companies and further hinder energy exploration.

As I said here on FR on 11/4/08 - all things changed on that date - nothing is the to be the same again. Obama may not want to “manage” the affairs of state, but he fully intends to plunder her resources for his much larger agenda.

This isn’t an act of God but a man made disaster happening in federal waters. He should have acted a week ago when they knew that there was a massive leak.

The liberals said that Obama’s response to Haiti would show the world that he really knew how to respond to a disaster, unlike Bush.

Gee... haven’t heard much about Haiti in the news, lately.
