Obama walk in sand is prelude to primetime speech

Speaking to troops at the base, Obama said the country faced an unprecedented environmental disaster and "we're going to continue to meet it with an unprecedented response."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Obama.

You sat in the Oval Office for over a year while the Minerals Management Service surfed internet porn, did drugs, and accepted hookers from the very oil companies they were supposed to keep an eye on. None of this was secret. MMS was a scandal-plagued mess on inauguration day. Yes, much of the problem was inherited from your predecessor, but you won your election with a promise that you were going to change the way the government operated; a promise you have failed to keep.

Harry Truman had a sign on his desk that read, "The Buck Stops Here!" It was never more true than in the present case. Many entities share the blame for this, the greatest environmental disaster in history, one which could have been prevented if you had remembered that your job is to take care of America, not Israel! Every blob of oil that washes ashore represents your failure to do your job for the American people. And all the posturing and bluffing that you will deal with the situation now that the disaster has happened will not conceal the fact that your job was to keep it from happening in the first place by making sure the existing agencies, precautions and regulations were being followed.

Instead, you allowed the MMS to go on playing their sex and drug games, while your administration handed out waivers and exemptions to the rules like they were party favors.

And this disaster is the result.

The Deepwater Horizon is America's Chernobyl.
