Obama, Oil & Outrage

June 30, 2010


Full column here.


Today we get the news the President has finally allowed foreign ships to help with cleanup in the Gulf. This could have happened two months ago had the President preferred pollution control to politics.

(Please read this quickly before Obama shuts down the internet that Al Gore invented between massages. Fighting that there Republican-caused global warming and saving the polar bears must make Al Gore real kinky in the neck.)

It does not matter what color you paint your politics, every single American should be outraged by the lack of performance by this Administration concerning the Gulf oil spill.

As the Gulf waters and shorelines are poisoned far and wide, moment by moment, we find a President fumbling so terribly, we now have the worst environmental catastrophe on record. There is no end in sight. The economic and ecological consequences will be horrendous.

Obama’s agenda: Overwhelm the system 

by Wayne Allyn Root


Barack Obama is my college classmate ( Columbia University , class of ’83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

— Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care! It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

“You know what my biggest fear is?” our host asked. “It’s not really Obama, for what he’s done is to accelerate what the liberals have been slowly doing for decades – so quickly that their socialism is obvious to everyone. Which means the solution is obvious to everyone. My biggest fear is that voters will give Republicans the power to repair America on November 2nd – and the Republicans won’t have the courage to do it.”

“All he knows how to do is keep on talking.”

An administration lacking focus.

U.S. Rep. Charles Djou is calling on President Barack Obama to waive a 90-year-old law so foreign ships can help respond to the huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The logical question: why wasn’t this done two months ago?

D.C. SCOTUS Examiner Hans Bader has the answer:

Crucial offers to help clean up BP’s oil spill came “from Belgian, Dutch, and Norwegian firms that . . . possess some of the world’s most advanced oil skimming ships.” But the Obama administration didn’t accept their help, because doing so would require it to do something past presidents have routinely done: waive rules imposed by the Jones Act, a law backed by unions.

Few would fault anyone for an accident.  The spill—for all of BP’s shortcuts—was an accident.  Casting overt blame is unreasonable.

However, failure to do everything possible to stop the leak and clean up the mess is entirely the fault of this Administration.   Even the crowned princes of the Left at MSNBC admit, after the President’s remarks last night, this Administration is thoroughly incompetent.

ObamaCare: add senior citizens to endangered species list

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

                 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Well, it passed and we are starting to see what’s in it, and what it means for the country, especially for American senior citizens.

ObamaCare is only the acknowledged first step in nationalizing the entire healthcare industry but already financial experts don’t see a way to stop the bleeding.

Costs will soar.  Quality care will diminish.  Access will shrink.

The $940 Billion patchwork plan supposedly designed to cover about 8 million people without health insurance will probably drive that many seniors out of the system according to one analysis.   And the $940 Billion figure is only the beginning.

In the first decade, try on $3 Trillion for size.

BHO troubles mount: SestakGate opens for RomanoffGate, with Blago in the wings

No doubt Obama Administration officials were hoping their ‘clarifying’ disclosures just before the three-day weekend would make the Sestak scandal go away.

But like the President’s Memorial Day speech, that game was rained out as well.

Today, there are renewed calls for answers and investigations, and there are new revelations the Administration offered a federal job to Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff if he, like Sestak, would step out of a campaign in deference to a candidate preferred by the President.

From the AP report on the Romanoff matter:

The new revelation of a possible political trade again called into question President Barack Obama’s repeated promises to run an open government that was above back room deals.
