Business Insider ^ | June 22,.2010

Nothing brings people together like a disaster, right?

Wrong. America has turned down help from around 30 countries and international organizations. Obama has dismissed miracle cures from Croatia, barges from Sweden, and containment boom from various obscure allies, according to the State Department [pdf].

He's definitely not accepting chemical dispersants from the country that started this whole mess, England. Click here to see the offers Obama refused .

The Wee Wee would rather handle things by himself using his expert leadership skills and his highly qualified team of professional administrators.

An abbreviated list:

Anyone surprised about this? Obama and his minions want to stop oil drilling, so they are pimping this diaster to advance it.

Quite a list. A lot could be done with that help.

Oh my no, no, no, no.

The intention is to allow all the time possible for this event to grow into a full blown crisis. That way, legislation can be authored as a solution to the sad, but true, and obvious ineptitude of the private sector, which in turn, brings about total government control of the oil companies.

Just like the denied statement to Kyl. It does not matter who or what dies, or suffers. The end justifies their means...

Just to clarify - The second paragraph is my interpretation of the tactics of the current administration.

Thanks,

The country that started it? BP is 40% UK owned and 39% US owned. All these companies are INTERNATIONAL companies.

It is very obvious that cleaning up or capping this terrible oil spill, which may wreak more problems than we now know, is not in Obama’s best interest. Consequently, he is dragging his feet on any viable chance of saving our coastal states irreparable damage, the good health of those affected, not to mention the heartbreak happening to sea life and coastal wild life. With a majority of Americans opposed to his drastic moves since occupying the White House, and even the Military in disagreement with his foreign policies, how much longer should this man continue in his deliberate destruction of our great country?

Anyone else find it ironic that the company BP (Beyond Petroleum) that touts itself as being so green is the company that has screwed up the environment big time?

Heck, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both Senators from MAINE couldn’t get a response from the Obama administration when they offered to get miles of containment booms from their state!

The British offered half of their national reserves of eco friendly chemicals to use in the oil spill , instead obama chose to use a chemicals from Chicago (no kidding) that is toxic and banned in most of the world. Seems he has friend and connections in chicago he owes favors to!! A congressman last night stated that we have 1500 skimmer boats in harbors waiting (just in case ) for another national disaster oil spill. He stated that we only have 20 in the gulf at this time.
