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?

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.
