Two props with hard hats

The prez in Ohio again, wasting fuel, babbling on.

Two guys in hard hats staged in the background.  Pathetic.

The rest of the crew was laid off for the day for his appearance.  They’re not real happy.  What’s the matter?  Are they afraid somebody might blurt out the truth?

Rise of the Right doc bottomed out

Chris Matthews' so-called documentary on the Rise of the Right was not a ratings blast coming in under all of Fox's regular programming. I read somewhere that he was at one time pretty fair in his reporting, but he has completely lost his mind over Obama.  I've noticed he doesn't care much for the south, sees only in black and white, is a "typical white person," and doesn't think much of women either.

Republicans always bowing down to the democrats

By bipartisan agreement, Texas GOP Rep. Joe Barton set a new standard in stupid Thursday by apologizing to BP for President Obama‘s “shakedown” of the company.

Furious GOP leaders scrambled to cap a gusher of outrage ranks over Barton’s misplaced mea culpa. By late afternoon, they made him eat his words.

In my estimation, Joe Barton went from a man to a wimp, aided by Boehner,  Cantor, Pence, Miller (of Florida), who else?

I just saw a poll and not a single soul agrees with me on this.  It was a 100% against what Barton said and in favor of this forced apology.

I stand alone.  😐    (P. S. on 6.19,10 – I am glad to find a few people who agree with me.)

But I do not waver.  Think about it.  The White House demands the house republicans do something and they do it within a few minutes.   If they reacted that fast to “public opinion” in opposing everything the democrats are throwing out, that would be good.  But when you think of how fast they jumped to the commands of the administration, it makes me want to throw up.

Plus  —  Obama summonsing BP executives and demanding they set aside money for the victims, it was a shake down and this hearing is like a kangaroo court.

It’s not about the money.  It’s about how it was done.  Of Course, there should be money to help the victims, but he does not have the authority to order a private company to do anything.

Are we going to stand by, or really help, this government take over the entire private sector?  They are well on their way.

I am not sure how they plan to administer the money, but it would be good if they give it to the states so it can be done at a local level and the federal government completely out of it.  After all, it is the federal government who is shutting down Louisiana’s attempt to stop the oil!

What you want to bet the locals never see any of the money.  I doubt there really is any money.  Maybe that’s why they agreed so quickly.  The agreement was they would say there was going to be a fund, but a fund never materializes.  Everybody looks good and promptly washes their hands.

The White House says to house reepublicans, “Jump” and they say “How high?”

A bunch of weak-kneed republicans.  And that includes Joe Barton who caved in almost immediately.

And the oil keeps pouring out.  While these crooks in Washington argue about an apology.

Chris Dodd gives casino millions of dollars.  $54 million to Mohegan Sun Casino. How sweet it is.

I demand that this money go to the Gulf Coast victims.

Have a hearing on it.

P. S. I guess I should say that, of course, Chris Dodd is not giving anybody his OWN money, but tax payer money.  One last heist.

Coast Guard sabotaging oil removal in La

Update: Here’s a very direct little message to Bobby Jindal. I do love it.

Sixteen barges sat stationary today, although they were sucking up thousands of gallons of BP’s oil as recently as Tuesday. Workers in hazmat suits and gas masks pumped the oil out of the Louisiana waters and into steel tanks. It was a homegrown idea that seemed to be effective at collecting the thick gunk.

But the Coast Guard ordered the stoppage because of reasons that Jindal found frustrating. The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges.

Louisiana Governor Couldn’t Overrule Coast Guard

The governor said he didn’t have the authority to overrule the Coast Guard’s decision, though he said he tried to reach the White House to raise his concerns.

“They promised us they were going to get it done as quickly as possible,” he said. But “every time you talk to someone different at the Coast Guard, you get a different answer.”

And who is the commander in chief of the Coast Guard?  None other than Barack H. Obama.

It was estimated today by Tony Hayward that it could be two to four years before the oil in this reservoir is depleted – that is if it cannot be stopped.

And the Coast Guard is shutting down Louisiana’s attempt to do something, to stop the damage.  This is criminal. Because of life jackets and fire extinquishers?  WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?

Instead of shutting down the operation, why didn’t the Coast Guard actually HELP and take a boat load, or a couple boat loads, of life jackets and fire extinquishers down there, if that is their problem.  Bring in enough to more than cover any requirements, hundreds of them, and if there’s not enough room on the barge, just sit there with them in case they are needed and let these barges do their job.

And the Secretary of State says that the government is going to sue the State of Arizona on the anti-immigration law.  Governor Brewer says, “Bring it on.”  Good for her.

There is no doubt about it, we’ve got a serious problem in Washington, D. C. and he’s in the Oval Office (occasionally).
