“President didn’t use his superpowers to see into the future or spin time backwards,” say teeth-gnashing pundidiots.
Here it comes. The whore media just can’t help themselves.
Even though the President has done nothing to be faulted for, it hasn’t stopped the press corpse from trying to link the disaster in the gulf to a wholly-manufactured “White House crisis.” From drudge’s little asswipe Politicon:
W.H. in P.R. ‘panic’ over spillExcuse me? Obama's reputation? You little repuke-asskissing trolls.
The growing oil leak in the Gulf threatens Obama's reputation for competence.
And from AssPress writer Erica “Weiner” Werner:
SPIN METER: There since Day One? Maybe notOh really, you fucking cunt. Talk about “spin”. Jesus Christ: --
To hear Obama administration officials tell it, they've been fully engaged on the Gulf Coast oil spill since Day One, bringing every resource to bear and able to ensure without question that taxpayers will be protected.
April 20 (10 p.m.): Oil rig explosion. The U.S. Coast Guard Response System assigns primary responsibility for cleaning up oil spills to BP as the responsible party.Lots more at link above.
April 21: otherwise known as Day One. Bint. Deputy Secretary of Interior, Coast Guard dispatched to region. Following a briefing with President Obama, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Thad Allen, Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe, and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, "Deputy Secretary of the Interior David Hayes was dispatched to the region yesterday to assist with coordination and response."
Search and rescue efforts begin for 11 missing. BP confirms U.S. Coast Guard was "leading the emergency response" CNN.com: "The U.S. Coast Guard launched a major search effort."
April 23: Coast Guard "focused on mitigating the impact of the product currently in the water." Federal agencies have technical teams in place overseeing the proposals by BP and Transocean to completely secure the well. A high readiness posture to respond will remain in place.
April 25: Response team implements try to contain oil spilling from source, weather delays cleanup.
April 28: Federal officials realize spill was far more severe than BP led them to believe. "Government officials said late Wednesday night that oil might be leaking from a well in the Gulf of Mexico at a rate five times that suggested by initial estimates...
"For days, as an oil spill spread in the Gulf of Mexico , BP assured the government the plume was manageable, not catastrophic. Federal authorities were content to let the company handle the mess while keeping an eye on the operation...
“But then government scientists realized the leak was five times larger than they had been led to believe, and days of lulling statistics and reassuring words gave way Thursday to an all-hands-on-deck emergency response.”
April 29: Homeland Security declares spill "of national significance"; BP insists its "plan can handle this spill."
Take a look at some of the new pics coming out, of the rig engulfed in titanic flames -- the right wouldn’t have been quiet even if Obama had pissed on the fire from a goddamn helicopter a second after it happened.
Bonus: Fux Noise trots out incompetent, mega-fail horse-judge Michael Brown to further erode his and their credibility. For shame.
