An avertible catastrophe and an incompetent President equals…

A disaster of epic proportions. As if we needed it, here’s yet more proof that the petulant, community-organizing, man-child bungler-in-chief is in way over his head. He’s a clueless buffoon that the world laughs at.

Did I mention that he’s an arrogant, narcissistic, America-hating POS? I think I have, numerous times, but I digress…

The bungler-in-chief, and the other imbecilic libtards in congress, with the help of way too many RINO’s (who need to be defeated Nov. 2nd and replaced by solid conservatives) have screwed up everything he and they have attempted to remedy since the day he took the oath of office.

If anyone disagrees with me, tell me, and all of us, what they have done that has actually helped a bad situation (Kennedy and Byrd dying don’t count, since God was responsible for that. But it did help a bad situation, if you axe me).

Has anyone thought about how the libs in Congress and in the state-controlled media would have treated Bush/Cheney if this had happened under their watch, and 70 days in, the oil was still flowing out into the Gulf?

And today the incompetent swine in the bungler-in-chief’s regime said that they are worried about the environmental damage that the ships that would suck up the oil might do to the Gulf of Mexico. Can you believe this lunacy?

Avertible catastrophe

Lawrence Solomon, Financial Post · Saturday, Jun. 26, 2010

Some are attuned to the possibility of looming catastrophe and know how to head it off. Others are unprepared for risk and even unable to get their priorities straight when risk turns to reality.

The Dutch fall into the first group. Three days after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began on April 20, the Netherlands offered the U.S. government ships equipped to handle a major spill, one much larger than the BP spill that then appeared to be underway. “Our system can handle 400 cubic metres per hour,” Weird Koops, the chairman of Spill Response Group Holland, told Radio Netherlands Worldwide, giving each Dutch ship more cleanup capacity than all the ships that the U.S. was then employing in the Gulf to combat the spill.

To protect against the possibility that its equipment wouldn’t capture all the oil gushing from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, the Dutch also offered to prepare for the U.S. a contingency plan to protect Louisiana’s marshlands with sand barriers. One Dutch research institute specializing in deltas, coastal areas and rivers, in fact, developed a strategy to begin building 60-mile-long sand dikes within three weeks.

…………

Why does neither the U.S. government nor U.S. energy companies have on hand the cleanup technology available in Europe? Ironically, the superior European technology runs afoul of U.S. environmental rules. The voracious Dutch vessels, for example, continuously suck up vast quantities of oily water, extract most of the oil and then spit overboard vast quantities of nearly oil-free water. Nearly oil-free isn’t good enough for the U.S. regulators, who have a standard of 15 parts per million — if water isn’t at least 99.9985% pure, it may not be returned to the Gulf of Mexico.

    The long term damage his idiocy is causing to the Gulf region makes me physically sick. How much environmental damage has been caused because these morons don’t see that at least 95% of the oil being removed from the water is better than not removing any oil from it? What’s more, he doesn’t seem to really give a damn.

    They are still holding up the super-skimmer that can process something like 500,000 barrels a day. Apparently, they want them to prove that it is 100% effective. As though if it only processes 450,000 barrels a day it might as well not be there. Obama wants this to be a disaster. He didn’t cause it (of course), but he has dragged his feet since, I don’t know, at least the second or third week (assuming that it took him two or three weeks to get beyond the “You’re shitting me?” stage of disaster). He sees it as a hammer to attack big oil. From that perspective, the worse it is, the bigger the hammer.

    Don’t forget forbidding Jindal to construct sand berms because of “concern for the environment”—as if gallons of oily glop were an improvement.

    He has been dragging his feet way longer than that, all evidence is that BP alerted him back in the middle of Feb. that DeepOhfuck was going to be a disaster

    @ snowcrash:
    No. And now there’s talk of “blowing up” the well with a nuke. Might as well nuke NOLA, because that will kill the region.

    Look, I agree with BHO and the government in that they lack the wherewithal to combat the spill and leak--but there’s a saying in politics that “perception is reality”. If the government is perceived to be doing nothing, then it is doing nothing. If they had got off their asses and proceeded to act like grown-ups and act in charge, then 90% of the flack that is flying their way now would have been averted. But to stand there like an impotent, petulant pre-teen and whine about how you can’t do anything makes the government and the POTUS, in particular, look weak. I said it at the swap when I was there that I would not mind seeing BHO fail as that would reflect only on the man, but I don’t want to see a failed presidency, as that would undermine the office. We are seeing the slow-moving train wreck of a failed presidency --and that does not bode well for this country.

    Probably the only thing that can end the reign of this idiot is a major disaster in a Blue State, I don’t want that to happen, Blue or Red, but there are still too many carrying this man’s water. The MSM is our enemy, is the enemy of the last remaining freedom on earth. We need an event that completely discredits Obama and the MSM, I think God might have one in the On Deck Circle. This nation belongs to God and He will not allow its destruction. I heard today that the approval for Obama Care is rising, time is not our friend, that is what these Marxists count on, that with the constant pounding of the MSM and over time, people will cave-in, intensity will wane, socialism will become entrenched just that much more.

    On stoping the BP well.

    Physics.

    A long solid “heavy” steel rod very sharp point on the end down hole, the point tapers to within .01 mm of the inside size of the well casing in the well. This rod needs to be at least 100′ long or longer, it has to weigh at least the same as the force of the oil/gas mixture comeing out of the well. Clear all the shit away from the casing hole. Very stickey risen coated on the rod for bite when the rod is fully lowered into the casing. Slowly drop the sharp point first into the casing hole, when the weight of the rod “its force” is the same as the force of the gas/oil coming out of the well.

    Only problem is, the liars from the U.S. Govt. and BP had trouble on this well weeks before the blowout, the “frack” job busted the well casing down hole and around the casing down hole, once they hit the gas zone the gas moved up the fractures around the casing and up the inside and that caused the blow up , now that is still leaking and could just make the hole larger with my plug deal.

    Of course Zero the Wonder Prez had to make sure it got worse. Had it been remedied or ameliorated quickly, he wouldn’t have had an excuse to shut down off-shore drilling so that his pal Soros could make some serious money from his investment in Petrobras.

    Oh, and there’s Republican governors and red states involved. Didn’t see a lot of photos of his visits to a flooded Nashville or the states hit with the ice storms last year either, and NO ONE called him on it.

    Of course Zero the Wonder Prez had to make sure it got worse. Had it been remedied or ameliorated quickly, he wouldn’t have had an excuse to shut down off-shore drilling so that his pal Soros could make some serious money from his investment in Petrobras.

    Oh, and there’s Republican governors and red states involved. Didn’t see a lot of photos of his visits to a flooded Nashville or the states hit with the ice storms last year either, and NO ONE called him on it. Bush had to wait for a few days to visit NOLA after the Storm and was vilified for “not caring.”

    Exactly.
    It is so obvious that zero is out to punish the ‘bitter clingers.’
    And the fact that he is so brazen and vindictive really shows you what kind of evil pos he is. He is doing this because he can. He is an ignorant, dangerous stooge.

    Soros has been trying to buy himself a President for some time. He contributed massively to Gore, and was financing Kerry big time, not to mention his illegal contributions for Zero. And Soros is no altruist -- there’s money for him to be made through this President. And this traitor to Jews everywhere doesn’t care who gets injured or destroyed in the process -- his track record proves that well enough.

So how about this: in the interests of journalistic transparency, and to offer the American public a unique insight in the workings of the Democrat-Media Complex, I’m offering $100,000 for the full “JournoList” archive, source fully protected. Now there’s an offer somebody can’t refuse.

    So basically, Andy is asking if anyone will send him copies of chat room transcripts? Did everyone sign a confidentiality agreement? My bet is not.

    Would they be all bent out of shape if Media Matters had offered $100,000 for transcripts of emails or chat rooms between, say, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, et al.? I’m thinking not. The MSM has a LOT of explaining to do, in my book, for their literal malpractice in covering the Obama campaign. And I’d love to see those chat room transcripts for how to handle negative news about the One during 2008 or the smearing of Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber.

    Must be killing Snowball that Andy has an extra $100,000 to throw around to get these. His tip jar must the the size of an Alhambra water cooler bottle.

    I can still pull it up.

    Try Down or Not to check whether a site is actually unavailable, or whether the problem is on your end.

    Yes, I do! I’ve have it for 20 years. Another RN is my durable Power -- not the spouse. I will not be tortured in the manner that modern medicine sometimes can do.

    We’ve got to stop calling Obama and his regime names like: “stupid”, “bungler-in-chief”, “incompetent”, ….

    They are many things, but stupid they aren’t. They know exactly what they are doing in the BP spill, the economy, all foriegn and domestic policy. Everything they do is for a deliberate purpose.

    BP’s Disaster is Obama’s Reichstag Fire!

    The Reichstag fire in 1933 was pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany. In 2010, history repeats itself.
