Obama: Gulf Spill Echoes 9/11 — FORE!

You wouldn’t think it would be difficult for President Obama to understand why his response to the Gulf oil spill leaves many of us more baffled than Joe Biden in a Dunkin Donuts with no Indians behind the counter.

Obama skipped the memorial service of those killed in the Deepwater Horizon explosion to attend a fundraiser for Barbara Boxer. This morning, Obama compared the spill to 9/11, and right after comparing the oil spill to the most deadly attack on American soil, he went golfing for four hours.

“Not one man on this force will rest for one minute until the people who did this are behind bars! Now let’s go grab a bite to eat…”
–Lt. Frank Drebin

9/11 — you remember that day, when people died in an accident caused by airliners taking maintenance short-cuts combined with government environmental regulations that made buildings taller than they should be followed by the president using the tragedy as justification to pass Cap & Trade. The similarities to the Gulf spill are uncanny!

In any case, BP’s 48 hour deadline is up, and, as promised, Obama plans to lead a dramatic return to the Gulf tomorrow:


And, on this topic, here’s the quote of the day. These weasels must snicker when they write this stuff:

Fifty-four Democratic senators wrote to BP’s chief executive, Tony Hayward, demanding that BP put an initial $20bn into a ring-fenced fund. Although BP has pledged to pay clean-up costs and damages, “history has taught us that corporations often fail to live up to their initial promises”, the lawmakers wrote. They demanded a response by Friday.

Corporations don’t come through on their promises nearly as often as politicians — luckily the Democrats are on it. We’re in good hands here.
