Obama aide: leak is biggest environmental disaster (Paging Capt. Obvious) ^ | May 30, 2010 | AP

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's top energy adviser says the Gulf oil spill is probably the biggest environmental disaster the country has ever faced. And she says the government is responding with what she calls its largest environmental response ever.

Already it's been called the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.

Browner says more oil is leaking into the Gulf of Mexico than from any previous U.S. oil spill—including the Exxon Valdez spill off the coast of Alaska in 1989.

Government estimates say that between 18 million and 40 million gallons have been dumped into the Gulf.

Browner spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press."

“Why should he stop at GW? MAO-bama will ultimately blame God who created earth and the evil BP employees.”

Truly, the only thing he is good at is blaming others for “his” failures. He is a complete failure as a president however, in my opinion, he seems to be pretty good @ bashing America, vacationing and drug use.

Obama Hussein Barrack or whatever his name is, if that is even his real name, is no student of history.

Obama Hussein Barrack needs to read up on what eventually happens to Messiahs.

You set yourself up as the Global Savior, then when things go wrong, it is your fault.

Where are his magic powers now?

Hmm. If this is the biggest US environmental disaster ever, and Obama has said he’s been in charge of it since day 1, and that ultimately the responsibility is his,

then isn’t it fair to say that not only has he really screwed up big time if he has been in charge since day 1, and that it’s his ass (buck stops here) that’s failed to get this under control?

And that maybe taking two vacations while this worst eco-disaster in US history occurs, maybe is extremely poor judgment on his part and that maybe he better get his ass back to work fixing this?

I believe he planned his news conference on Thurs—when BP thot they were going to be able to cap the well. He sounded soo confident and wanted to take responsibility—
His actions—going on 2 vaca, and fundraisers speak volumes....

will the media ever wake up?

“Where are his magic powers now?”

I think he’s getting them “recharged” in Chicago this weekend. He’s running home to feed his ego by the corrupt machine that put him in office.

I have a feeling another executive order is on the way....along with nationalization of a part of the oil industry. The market will love that...

You have 0bama pegged. He is an alien who could care less about America except to implement some wacko leftist theories he learned in college. He likes the glory and having people duped by his silver tongue and sucking up to him. He might have some pseudo tribal identification with American blacks, though he isn’t one with his Kenyan parentage..
