Are You Kidding?

Obama has been completely absent on the oil leak in the gulf, well, except for some useless complaining about how BP has been handling it.  

We had LA Governor Bobby Jindal asking for federal permits to start building islands of sorts between the spill and the beach...Obama was silent.

As thick oil flows into the sensitive marshes of the Louisiana coast, Gov. Bobby Jindal called on the White House and BP today to either stop the oil spill or get out of his way.  

Jindal is still waiting for the federal government to provide millions of feet in boom and to approve an emergency permit for a state plan to dredge and build new barrier islands to keep the oil from reaching the marshes and wetlands.
Jindal is so desperate for the islands, he's said he'll build them even if it sends him to jail.
"We've been frustrated with the disjointed effort to date that has too often meant too little, too late for the oil hitting our coast," Jindal said.

Then yesterday, Democrat Heavy Weight James Carville blasts Obama. 

The "political stupidity is unbelievable," Democratic strategist James Carville said on "Good Morning America" today. "The president doesn't get down here in the middle of this. ... I have no idea of why they didn't seize this thing. I have no idea of why their attitude was so hands off here."

Then today, Obama says, don't sweat it people...we've been in charge the whole time.  I got this!

OK, if we are to believe you, then why was the Governor of the state that is directly affected NOT in the loop?

I have never been a fan of Obama, but I at least believed when it all came down to it, he would do what HE thought was best for the country.  When pirates kidnapped the captain, Obama allowed snipers to take out the pirates.  I'm sure he would have rather brought them here to 'understand' why 'we' deserved their piracy, but he did the right thing.

Now I'm convinced that Obama does what is good for Obama.  Obama-care has a few political casualties already, but Obama doesn't care.  Jindal was not kept out of the loop, he was flat out IGNORED.  Obama couldn't allow him to get involved and actually show leadership during a crisis.  That would highlight Obama's lack of leadership.  Plus, if it worked, WOW! That would really make Obama look bad. 

If you don't agree with me, fine, but you can't possibly disagree that The Obama is an egomaniac to a level we've never seen.

In his speech today he mentioned his daughter Malia.  What kind of BS lines has he been feeding this 12 year?  Seriously, if she was 4 or 5, I could see this happening...

"When I woke up this morning and I'm shaving," he said, "Malia knocks on my bathroom door and she peeks in her head and she says, 'Did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?'"

Of course, I don't believe that ever happened, I believe Obama made up the scene to score political points.  And frankly, in my book he lost points.

The dude sat on his hands for almost 40 days, and now that BP may have actually fixed the problem, he is ready to swoop in and take the credit...

Yep, that's our president...
