Part the first, here.
Obama on BP – he wants to kick somebody’s a$$. Yes, really. He even said it on television.
Erick is as floored as I am at how low this President has sunk.
He is talking to experts not to find out how to solve the problem but to find out whose ass to kick? Seriously?
That is the President of the United States in his own words.
There is one well leaking caused by the collapse of one platform owned by one company.
Not only has Barack Obama not once talked to the CEO of that company, his big donor British Petroleum, he overreacted and shut down every company’s offshore drilling — every single one. He put, effective immediately, tens of thousands of people on the unemployment line.
And in the President of the United States’ own words, he’s not talking to experts to figure out how to solve the problem, but to figure out who to assign blame to.
This is not leadership. Heck, this isn’t even bullying.
This is failure.
Contrast that with the commencement address he gave to Kalamazoo Central High School (the same day, even?) where he admonished the graduates
Don’t Make Excuses. Take Responsibility Not Just For Your Successes, But For Your Failures As Well. … It’s The Easiest Thing In The World To Start Looking Around For Someone To Blame.”
Really. And a toe-tapper to boot.
That was a first. By uttering that line, Obama crossed a line that no president ever crossed before, passing another milestone in the advance of vulgarity in our culture, and lowering public discourse to a new nadir.
Indeed, it is one thing to spout vulgarities in private meetings or in battle, but knowingly on national television? If you want to further denigrate yourself in public opinion, go right ahead, but it’s another thing entirely to sully the Office of the President. And get your d$%*#$ can off the Resolute desk.
