Day 64 of the Spill Disaster!
The master of evasion strikes again!
Remember in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy's dog Toto pulled back the curtain to reveal that the Wizard wasn't so great and powerful after all? [video] Isn't that what we are seeing with Obama and his mismanagement of the Gulf Oil Spill?
I haven't updated this report on the oil spill for several days for the reason that there has been basically no news on the matter. And it looks like that may be intentional on Obama's part as he's desperate to change the subject and distract the American people away from his failure to lead during this worst ever environmental disaster.
Instead, the White House put out a story on Tuesday that Obama was "angry" because of the Rolling Stone article in which Afghanistan Commander General Stanly McChrystal and his staff made unflattering comments about Obama, Biden and others. What a shame Obama doesn't direct his anger at the bureaucrats who are making the oil spill worse by the day. But then, those folks don't criticize him do they?
Instead of addressing the spill, Obama seeks cover behind a tempest in a tea pot over McChrystal (a manufactured outrage if ever there was one) and at the same time directs his political hatchet men at the Democrat National Committee to put out an ad attacking Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) and suggesting that anyone who criticizes Obama's performance in regard to the oil spill is somehow soft on BP.
Meanwhile, the oil continues to gush from the floor of the Gulf. We still can't get an answer to the question as to why cleanup assistance offered by other countries was rejected and why the Coast Guard is only now asking the Navy for help cleaning up the oil?
Still time to vote in the poll: When it comes to managing a disaster or crisis, who does a better job? Bush or Obama?
