June 15, 2010. President’s Oval Office. Prime time TV coverage. A good time for Obama to use the power of his office to give assurance to the American people that the Gulf Spill is under control; and that the federal government is at the helm driving the ship. Does he grasp the opportunity? No! Hell, no! He spoke to us as if we were 5-year-old kids, gesturing, and acting like the kindergarten teacher upset with the class. Sad!
The first one-third of the speech rambled on about the issues in the Gulf and the inadequacy if the MMS….for the past 10 years. Another shot at the Bush Administration…will he ever learn to take some responsibility! Then he spent the last two-thirds talking about his dream for clean energy. Never once did he state that his #1 priority was to stop the damn leak! How can this man not address the most important question on everyone’s mind face-to-face? He has no answers….he is just a dreamer with no clue about how to accomplish the minutia involved in completing a task! He is clueless!!
He has seized this disaster to politicize his clean energy initiative! He has no clue how to get to clean energy, but he is willing to spend billions to embark on a journey without any road maps! Jimmy Carter spend hundreds of millions on synthetic fuels…..and it turned out to be an economic disaster. Billions were spent on ethanol…..a total waste! Now, Obama wants to take a country with a $13 Trillion deficit with a soon-to-be broken healthcare system, almost 10% unemployment, and little hope for a quick turnaround, and push a pie-in-the-sky clean energy pipe-dream down the collective throats of the public. Barack….it will not fly!!!! Enough is enough! Bobby Jindal got it right…he said that the government had failed the people of the Gulf!
This is no time to be politic…..leaders inspire! Obama has missed the mark….again!!!!!!!!!
