The Houston Chronicle is reporting the Netherlands, a experienced oil producing nation, offered the United States help in dealing with the British Petroleum spill very quickly after it started, but the Obama Administration turned them down, opting instead to coordinate with BP to stop the spill and contain the damage. Made worse, with the Obama administration threatening criminal and civil prosecution of British Petroleum as well as Obama refusing to keep open communication with British Petroleum’s CEO, the coordinated efforts of the company and government could go nowhere with no one talking to each other.
Compounding all of this is a U.S. law “that requires all goods be carried in U.S. waters by U.S.-flagged ships, … prevent[ing[ Dutch ships with spill-fighting equipment from entering U.S. coastal areas.”
Barack Obama wanted so hard to run from this disaster lest he be forced to accept responsibility for it has led to untold ecological and economic destruction. Obama is so over his head with the job of being president of America. He needs help and he is too arrogant to take any. The Democratic party pick a real lame duck with this one. He can't get anything right.


  1. Regime Is To Meet With BP Ceo And Others From Company To Discusss Oil Spill. CEO Should Be Ready For Ass Chewing And Photographers Ready To Make The Ass Chewing Into A Photo Op That Will Be Seen World Wide.One Thing This Regime Has Is Great Photographers.

    Regime May Not Have Acted Quickly On The Oil Spill Disaster But Photo Ops Are Another Matter.

    Regime Is Talking Tuff But Is Showing Nation That Government Does Not Have All The Answers To Everything! Should BP Be Punished. Dam Right They Should Be If Investigation Shows They Were Negligant. I Also Think Government Officals In Chaarge Of Inspection May Have Been Negligant, But Photo Op And Lawyers To THe Gulf To Investigate The Only Ones Who Might Be Able To STOP The Leak Is At Best Premature And At Worse Stupid Unless There Using Lawyers To Plug The Leak!

    Any Outside Help Or Input That May Help End This Disaster Should Be Listened To And Dam The Regulations That Keep Other Thoughts From Being Heard or Tried!

  2. This is so sad. Obama and BP are doing a bad job at fixing this.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
