Last night on CNN, AC spoke with Nungesser again and boy did Billy rip Obama and his admin a new one. It was a thing of beauty. I couldn't find a link, but if someone does, please post the link - everyone needs to see it.
He even connected the incompetence in the Gulf to the war in Afghanistan - saying basically that the thoughts McC has for Obama are probably running through the entire military, just as the same feelings are running through the entire gulf.
The guy is fed-up. And unless Obama can blacklist him from CNN - this is gonna get ugly.
Pass the popcorn.
I wish, but the General probably has more class than that.
I was waiting for this to be posted. I saw Nungesser last night, I hope this thing goes viral. Finally Nungesser isn’t carrying Obama’s oily water anymore. Being stabbed in the back repeatedly, will do that.!
Oh, I thought there was a link...
The military is there.
The Gulf is there.
Some TV comedians are there.
The rest of the folks are coming down that road as well.
To judge by my chance encounter with a couple of marines in transit this past spring, they sure are. It was sometime after 11 PM that a friend and I repaired to the "courtyard" at our Marriott to enjoy our cigars. After a while two young guys in an interior first floor room came out and sort of asked us "what was going on out here." One of them, or maybe both of them, came out with glass quart bottles of beer. They let it be know that they were on their way to redeployment, in Afghanistan I think. My friend is ex-Navy, and it didn't take long for the conversation to become friendly. I think I must have asked them what they thought about their Commander in-chief. Well they just launched, especially the one who had obviously consumed more than his daily ration of beer. Sometimes it wasn't pretty. One of those quart bottles found its way to the cement. And the marine who was still in control of his beer bottle sometimes tried to get his buddy to calm down. We wound up passing around my cigar, as I imagine hippies might do with a joint. And no one spoke an encouraging word about the Commander in-chief.
It was priceless. Needed to be said. AC was speechless.
Found the link. Quality is poor
(not sure how someone who posts to youtube doesn’t have a DVR, but oh well)
Turn the volume up. Maybe someone will post a better version later.
It’s a huge file but here is a link to AC360 podcasts including last nights.
This is all I could find (not sure if it is from the same interview)
President Obama: The BP oil spill has hardened negative perceptions of President Obama’s leadership style, playing into the flipside of “No Drama Obama” — namely that the president is so analytical as to seem aloof. It has highlighted questions raised during the campaign about his readiness to take the “3 a.m. call” and provided evidence of why we’ve only elected three people without executive experience to the presidency over the past century: Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy and Obama. Comparisons to President Carter are overdone — a reflexive attack by the right against any Democratic president. But the tick-tock of each day that passes has been compared to the Iranian hostage crisis in that they seem to symbolize an impotence of government.
When the president of Plaquemines Parish, Billy Nungesser, told a Senate subcommittee, “I still don’t know who’s in charge. ... Is it BP? Is it the Coast Guard? ... I have spent more time fighting the officials of BP and the Coast Guard than fighting the oil.” It was a scathing condemnation of a lack of leadership. And when Nungesser said he wanted someone “with the guts and the will to make decisions” — well, that’s what we elect presidents for. There is still time to turn this around — the $20 billion escrow account was a step in the right direction — but for the Obama administration, it’s later than they think.
It’s not just the people in the Gulf that see O for what he is....an utter incompetent failure.
It’s the entire thinking world, and that includes his fellow muslims.
Fascinating interview. It was interesting to see Cooper try to turn the conversation back to BP instead.
Some background information might be appreciated..
That was beautiful! Nungesser is Awesome. He has not been political at all, he has been concerned about his people regardless of race, party and gender. A sincere individual who is up against a freakin brick wall.
Some of what Nungesser said in that interview:
"I asked the governor, let me go out there at night to stay on the dredge. Let 'em come out there and try to take the permit away. Tell 'em the radio isn't working. We'll smash it with a hammer."
Also, in Nungesser's letter to BO, he issued a threat, of sorts:
""If it (dredging) shuts down at 6 o'clock, I'll be on Anderson Cooper at nine; and it's not gonna be pretty."
I watched Nungesser's interview last night when it first aired. It was a beautiful thing to behold.
I am still looking for a good vid of the interview.
Mike Church was playing it this morning. He was great.
“It could, would, should... It could rain cats and dogs tonite!!!!” Now that is good stuff there no matter who you are!
Are they still dredging or did they stop?
