Obama walk in sand is prelude to primetime speech (MSM Barf alert!)
Associated Press ^ | June 15, 2010 | Erica Werner

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Laying the groundwork for an evening speech to the nation, President Barack Obama walked a pristine stretch of sand on Florida's shoreline Tuesday and pledged to "fight back with everything we've got" against the spreading oil lurking offshore.

In a speech at Pensacola's Naval Air Station, Obama took note of the painful contrasts around him: "The sand is white. The water's blue," he said. And yet, he added, "those plumes of oil are off the coast."

To the tune of “Black and White”

“The sand is white. The water’s blue,”
“This is my chance to steal from you.”

One night, Obama had a dream that he only saw one set of footprints in the sand after walking with an AP reporter...

I have a hunch that phrase WILL attach to Obama, no matter how the Libs try to stop it.

Can't wait for the book. If I was Mike Cullen, I'd start selling them NOW, not June 29.

When the bammer said “we (the feds) have been on this disaster since day one”, he bought it. His imminent failure should prove once and for all, to anyone with a brain, that he is not infallible, the nanny state will fail, and he’ll do to healthcare what he’s doing to the gulf coast.

His nonchalant, finger-pointing towards this whole disaster is a complete disgrace.

His little parades around the Gulf, “eating” shrimp, enjoying a drink or two and declaring this his own 9/11 makes him look like an even bigger tool than I could have previously imagined. His idiocy and cluelessness is epic.

Next he’ll be running TV ads after his speech of him walking along the sand and saying “Come on down! The water’s fine!”

This is a total puff piece by one Erica Werner. The adulation of Obama is so transparent, it's laughable.


Some excerpts:
Obama was poised to seize the handling of oil spill damage claims from BP, if necessary, to ensure that people get the help they need to recover.

Voicing increasing confidence in his ability to confront the nation's worst environmental crisis, Obama was set to outline a comprehensive response and recovery program, while assuring not only the people from the afflicted region, but all across America, that his administration will guide the country to a recovery.

The trip gave him ammunition for the speech and for his meeting with BP executives

That pledge was reminiscent of George W. Bush's promise to rebuild the region "even better and stronger" than before Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Bush could not make good on that promise...

Presidents reserve the Oval Office for rare televised addresses. When they take their place behind the desk, it's a time for solemnity and straight talk — often a moment of history. There is a sense of gravity. One man by himself before one television camera speaking to the nation.

He didn’t even consider the Ft. Hood shooting or Christmas bomb plot to be terrorism.

He calls THIS another 9-11. He’s a pro-Islamist, anti-capitalist tool.

His “outrage” is phony.

He is not concerned about the environmental impact, he’s interested in what he can push through in the wake of the environmental impact.

Postulating Zero’s speech:

“Today, I walked along the pristine white beach of Pensacola. I saw a vibrant economy based on families vacationing and enjoying the beauty of Florida. I spoke to Tom, who runs an ice cream concession on the beach and works endless hours providing for his family. I will not let this oil spill ruin the Florida beaches or economy of the state.

We will fight it. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in Florida, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight it with growing confidence and growing strength from the air, we shall defend our islands and sounds, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!”

I can imagine this idiot saying "I got people". Well, that would only work if he surrounded himself with competent people, but he surrounded himself with idiots, idiots much like himself. They are good for rhetoric and rabble-rousing only, but couldn't produce or lead anything constructive even if their collective hides were faced with imminent starvation. And now people are surprised that he is ineffective? PuHLease....The American people voted for an ad campaign, and now they are getting what they voted for.

Elections have consequences.

Expect the media to pull out all the stops tonight to defend Obama.
His presidency is collapsing under the sheer weight of massive incompetence, and this speech is almost a desperate, “last stand” effort to turn things around.

The MSM will be in full worship mode tonight to save their man.

From his POTUS election campaign to every day of his administration, it’s always about the direct construction of image, as there is NO substance there. In as much as image making, not substance, is the heart of modern day “journalism” it took no effort at all for the lemmings of the media to slavishly follow their pied piper; as they still do.

Matthew 7:24-27 (New International Version)

The Wise and Foolish Builders
24”Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
