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.

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.
