I love the title of this blog. It's a combination of three pretty fun things. First it implies a conspiracy theory, always a good time, it's satirical which is fun and it blames Obama also a good time. That's my explanation for any Obama zombies who might have needed one.
First off I'm actually going to applaud BP. I know conservative side with big business blah, blah blah. Well, I'm not really a fan of big business I've worked for several VERY large companies and truth be told not really a fan. My applaud of BP is they're doing the best they can with no help from the administration.
But it's they're fault you say. Yeah maybe, maybe it was the company who owed the rig, maybe it was Haliburton, maybe it was the eco-nuts who made them drill in water a MILE deep, maybe it was the administration who rubber stamped they're last inspection, maybe Barry really did release the Krakken. At this point it doesn't really matter. What matters is that BP is taking full responsibility for it.
They're taking responsibility for it and doing the best they can to figure out a way to fix it. What has the regime done? Other than sending lawyer, more lawyer a swat team, a bunch of empty suite bureaucrats and throwing hissy fits and threatening to "Keep their boot on BP's throat"?
Nothing. Not one blasted thing. Their are no reports of the army corps of engineers helping or any other productive section of government doing anything to help. And what do I have to say about that? Good! BP is better off without the governments help. This is their business and I have no doubt that they are doing a much better job than any government agency every good. Don't get me wrong I have the utmost respect for the armed services, but they are not in the oil business.
I understand that this is a horrible ecological disaster and it's one of those things that could very well fall under a category that the government needs to do something about. I understand that this is going to turn in to a horrible economic disaster for the south and possibly for the whole country. So why ,your probably still asking, am I glad that the regime has not really gotten it self involved in this. The answer is simple... The federal government has a bad habit of messing up every thing it touches, and that goes double for the current regime.
Do I even have to list examples?
The NOAA had a plan that they developed almost twenty years ago for just such an occasion and they just sat and watched like a bunch of stoned teenagers. The President didn't even mention it till nearly a week after it happened, and then he tried to take credit when everybody thought that the top kill worked and then we find out it didn't and now I bet he's pissed. The
Governor of Louisiana had a plan to help protect they're shores from the oil, the plan was to build a series of barrier off the coast, and the administration told him no, they needed to study what the environmental impact of building they barriers would be.
I can answer that one...A lot less than thousands of gallons of oil washing on to the shore and bayous of the Louisiana coast doesn't take a genius to figure that one out. So just based on this last paragraph I have to say... There is a saying "Lead, Follow or get out of the way"...so I guess what I'm saying in summation... The Obama regime needs to GET OUT OF THE WAY!!
Not to mention unless Obama has something constructive to say or gets out he magical messiah diving suit and goes down and caps the well him self I've heard from him all I need to hear about this.
In conclusion to British Petroleum I applaud you for taking responsibility and many of us know that you're doing the best you can under the conditions your in and with what you are allowed to do
