Posted on 05/14/2011 12:11:19 PM PDT by BillKneer
While Bungler-in-Chief Obama was in El Paso getting in their faces (i.e., of Republicans) at a stage-managed campaign event, the incompetents of his administrations Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) were doing their best imitation if Jim Carreys Fire Marshall Bill character in North Texas. As the Plainview Herald reported, a BATF training exercise went awry, and the resulting wildfire scorched another 150 acres of the drought-devastated Texas panhandle. The blazes have been extinguished, but the Heralds editor writes that the federal fiasco is far from over:
Motley County Attorney Tom Edwards said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms could face charges for violating the countys burn ban after their actions started a fire that scorched an estimated 150 acres in the northwest part of that county on Tuesday.
Edwards called the incident ironic and inexcusable.
We have the federal government that has just refused aid to the state of Texas for all our fire damage throughout the state, and then here comes federal agents who start another fire, Edwards told KCBD-TV.
Jim Luera, resident agent in charge for the BATF in Lubbock, took full responsibility for the fire after his agency detonated explosives that touched off a grass fire that quickly got out of hand. It took close to six hours for firefighters from five area volunteer departments Motley County, Floydada, Turkey, Roaring Springs and Flomot plus heavy equipment from the Texas Department of Transportation to extinguish the fire.

” Is he a just another lying politician or just a bumble idiot?”
6 of one, a half dozen of the other. It really doesn’t matter. He’s still an @$$hole!....red
The idiots who come to Texas from D.C. seem to be the Arson Division of the federal government. They burned dozens of children to death in their home in Waco during the Clintoon follies, and now they are back to finish off what little grazing land there is left in Texas during this epic drought.
Just stay out of Texas, please, since you don’t seem to have the sense to put away the matches.
That's a rhetorical question, right?
I mean, we're dealing with the Obama administration here...
BTTT.... and.... Josh Painter??
Just in case you missed this ping.
Good grief. The Keystone Kops are at it again. They really DO hate us!
The feeling is mutual! feh
I am to the point that I have to slowly portion out reading the news about obammy and what he’s up to. I had one major heart attack a few years back—hope to avoid another...
Hope Texas determines the 2012 election and costs Obama the election. A normal, non-traitorous president would be rushing to Texas for photo-ops and to make sure the got disaster relief funds. Just to at least try to win Texas in 2012 and help Democrat candidates there
Obama is over confident that the Democrat’s media friends will carry the day for him. Keep the Republican message from getting out. Right now, to get re-elected, Obama is engaged in a charm offensive in Louisiana, permitting off shore drilling after driving them away like an African dictator
Yes, he does hate Texas. Then to have the nads to come here and raise campaign donations from the libs in Austin and make jokes about illegal immigration in El Paso.
Well, I am on blood pressure meds and have been since 2002, but it is because I have a bicuspid aortic valve. I hope to avoid have the “big one”, even with this jackass in the white hut.
I can only hope that it didn’t go over well, to condescend to
people here in Texas.
Well, he only went to the two places he might carry in ‘12.
Other than the DFW and Houston areas, he can write TX off.
Well, we can sure write HIM off....and hope to permanently! :)
