Video: Brutal time line of Obama’s oil spill failure

This has seriously got to be one of the most effective use of web ads I’ve seen in a long time. Anyone can be clever or flashy but this is chock full of substance which is presented in a very convincing manner.

I’m flashing back to the repeatedly overplayed video of President Bush mentioning something about terrorism and then taking a golf swing. The media and left-wing advocates went nuts using it over and over again. One has to wonder how that compares to the amount of time President Obama has spent golfing, hiking, speaking and conferring while the oil continues spilling into the Gulf.

The icing on the cake is the MSNBC montage of Chris “thrill up my leg” Matthews and Keith Olbermann explaining how their hope and change excitement has faded.

Not much can be said to spin out of the at considering the facts all align against Obama’s response. He has made the Hurricane Katrina response look like a well-coordinated effort, which is no small feat.

    Must be updated and updated many times before elections. “As the World Turns” has less drama along with less twist and turns than obama’s “Flight from Love of Country”. No one has hurt her Gulf and shores as he. Perhaps preventable to shores and minimized in Gulf..

    We have administration who one member says take advantage of bad situation and President who tries to take advantage, apparently on purose, by making situation worse.

    Getting off my editorial foreign ship skimmer came anyway when told NO by barry. Barry won’t sign Jones Act allowing for ships to help.

    Did “The ‘A Whale’ skimmer” force the foreign Ship aid issue for Gulf. Gosh YES.

    70+ days later:

    “Environmental Protection Agency approval is required because some of the seawater returned to the Gulf would have traces of oil.”

    “The ‘A Whale’ skimmer designed to collect up to 500,000 barrels of oily water a day through 12 vents on either side of its bow.”

    Who wants ships that remove say barrel of oil from sea but puts back into Gulf a few dropn.

    Well barry gives in a little. Hey, what’s the rush.

    “With no assurances it will be allowed to join the Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup, a Taiwanese-owned ship billed as the world’s largest skimming vessel was preparing to sail Friday evening to the scene of the Deepwater Horizon disaster.”

    “The company is still negotiating with the Coast Guard to join the cleanup and does not have a contract with BP to perform cleanup work. The company also needs environmental approval and waiver of a nearly century-old law aimed at protecting U.S. shipping interests.”

    “Environmental Protection Agency approval is required because some of the seawater returned to the Gulf would have traces of oil.”

    “Finally, on Day 70, Barack Obama is allowing the Gulf Coast limited access to additional help from foreign skimmer boats in the fight against BP’s spewing oil.”

    “Barack Obama is still arrogantly refusing to waive the Jones Act, an act that would open the doors for foreign skimmer boats to help defend the environment from the Gulf oil disaster. Skimmer boats can collect BP’s spewing oil before it reaches the shores of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida damaging sensitive marshland and estuaries, and harming wildlife.”

    “Today, a release from the State Department reveals that special considerations will allow some of the skimmer boat help offered from over 30 countries to participate in the defense and clean-up efforts. The details of which countries and organizations will be allowed to help weren’t released, but only 12 countries and international organizations were referred to in the release.”

    “In the final days of the Bush administration, three Black Panthers — Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson — were charged in a civil complaint with violating the Voter Rights Act in November 2008 by using coercion, threats and intimidation at a Philadelphia polling station — with Shabazz brandishing what prosecutors called a deadly weapon.”

    Yeah, Obama should have been down there with his finger in the leak…

    I think it is so funny, if obama had put all US resources from the beginning you would have cried, “Let the free market clean it up!”.

    Damned if you do damned if you don’t. It is always amazing how people will do anything to draw a line.

    Don’t want barry’s finger in leak. Well ok. Want barry not waving regulations for BP, most violations in Gulf.

    Bush waved Jones act in 3 days. Obama does allow limited foreign ships after 70 days but won’t wave Jones Act.

    His exception might be because foreign ship came here when told not to.

    We gave his finger with oil on shore. Dead birds, fish, and mammals. Could have been contained better with ships made for it than fishing boats. But NOOOO.

    America had no Ship skimmers. Some recently have been retro fitted. Like 60 days late.

    It takes no effect to find fault with barry.

    He’s making November Christmas.
