Freep This Poll: Has the Obama administrationís response to the oil spill been enough?
Reuters ^ | 5/27/2010

Posted on 06/03/2010 2:10:35 PM PDT by moovova

As one of the country’s worst environmental catastrophes unfolds on his watch, President Barack Obama is under increasing pressure from lawmakers and residents of the fouled Gulf coast to take over the oil disaster response.

What a strange question? Who's going to order the federal government to do something? The UN?

As I’m reading the responses to that poll, it struck me that the boneheads who continue to blame Bush/Cheney for everything are still poking fun at the FEMA Director during Hurricane Katrina, Michael Brown.

And yet the Obama administration has been so inept in responding to the situation in the Gulf that NOBODY from Obama’s team has stepped forward to say they are in charge!

There is nobody to blame BECAUSE NOBODY HAS THE BALLS TO TAKE CHARGE!!!!

More than enough. Time to focus the nation's attention to more important matters...

It’s almost impossible not to respond to the hand wringing Leftist over there, but what a waste of time that would be.

Those people are apoplectic concerning Obama’s lack of leadership. Excuses a plenty...

One said, “We didn’t hold Bush’s feet to the fire... ...with regard to Katrina.” You’ve got to see the humor in that one.

Others were saying, “What should Obama do, I mean really?” Well, what was Bush to do, I mean really?

Others were carping about how unfair the questions were. They seemed simple enough to me. I didn’t see them as being unfair, because you could answer no to them to get Obama off the hook.

Then there was this gem.


IF we listen to the GOP these are our choices:

1)Lower taxes and smaller government with limited leadership that allows industry to write it’s own rules that are backed up by taxpayer funded bailouts.

OR

2) Higher taxes to fund bigger government that is capable of bailing out private industries when they are incompetent to deal with problems they cause?

The GOP doesn’t care about America or our health and safety. They are only capable of playing politics and have no real ideas, as usual. Ideology is not what America needs now. The BP-Tansocean-Halliburton disaster is a perfect example of why we need to regulate all industries more closely and protect the environment and the Amercian public from those who seek only to profit from it.


Wow! And how was that related to Obama’s leadership? Talk about avoidance...

Another brain trust offered up this gem...


You’re rating Obama on this??? You gotta be kidding. I’ve got two words for ya.

Bush/Cheney.


I don’t want to burn the eyes of anyone here, so I’ll leave it at that. It’s a real brain trust over there.

At some point, even a Leftist must see what a bunch of idiots they have for fellow travelers.

His big failure has been in not "educating" the people on the complexity of the problem.

He's trying to use it for political gain, and can't figure out exactly how to do it.

I like this quote:

“What a bunch of lying hypocrites. A death sentence
for GOP incumbents is the only answer, and
maybe brain transplants for the voters who
keep electing these shills.”

Nothing like the freedom to disagree with someone. So tolerant the left is. And some how I am the one that is violent because I carry a sign at a protest.

This one is breaking down rather nicely.

I love it when an internet poll’s results deny Democrats a chance to demagogue a non-scientific pole.

If I do it, it’s so much more reasoned. ;-)

Not enough. Not enough to make it look like he's done enough.

A crises is a terrible thing to waste. If you pre-empt a crises, what good is that?
