Talk is cheap President Obama …
President Barack Obama ia all talk and no action when it comes to the BP oil spill and the ecological disaster in the Gulf of Mexico that is recking environmental havoc on Louisiana. Obama decided to not only show a lack of leadership with the BP oil spill as he is in over is head, Obama also decided to ask un-Presidential while doing an NBC interview as he says, ” … we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”
Classy, President Obama, real classy.

“I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”
As reported at CNN, Barack Obama is trying to defend his actions in dealing with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis. Barack, you were really on it. Sure you were. The explosion on the oil platform took place on April 20 that killed 11 workers. The rig sank two days later, and it was not until May 2 that Obama finally visited the Coast Guard command center in Venice, Louisiana.
Obama says during his interview that he was down there (the Gulf Coast) a month ago before most of these talking heads were even paying attention. Really Sir? You were there a month ago yet we are in day 49 of the environmental disaster. As Hot Air stated, he is days and weeks late and three dollars short.
“See? He’s mad. He cares.” It’s completely out of character with his Cool Hand Luke persona and roughly six weeks too late, which means it’s as phony as a three-dollar bill, but so what?
Barack Obama is trying to do every “I care” and “I feel your pain” political ploy because as many have previously stated, the BP oil spill is his Hurricane Katrina. Ouch, we stand corrected … it is much worse than his Hurricane Katrina. According to an ABC poll, 69% of American give the federal government (that would be Barack Obama) a failing grade to the federal response to the BP oil spill. A near whopping 70%, that is going to leave a mark on the midterm elections and most likely the clean up of the Gulf Coast region will be still going on in 2012 when Obama faces reelection.

What is most amazing is that Hurricane Katrina received a 62% negative rating for the federal response as opposed to Obama’s 69% for his handling of the BP oil spill. Even 56% of Democrats give Obama a failing grade for his handling of the issue.
There’s partisanship in views of the federal response, with Democrats less critical of the
Democratic-led government. Nonetheless, even among Democrats 56 percent rate the federal
response negatively. That rises to 74 percent of independents and 81 percent of Republicans.
Partisanship ran in precisely the opposite direction in views of the Katrina response under the
Bush administration. Just 41 percent of Republicans rated that response negatively, rising to 64
percent of independents and 79 percent of Democrats.
Remember when Senator Obama called President GWB administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in the context of Katrina and, during the 2008 campaign, declaring, “We can talk about a trust that was broken, the promise that our government will be prepared, will protect us, and will respond in a catastrophe.”
Guess what Barack Obama, WE THE PEOPLE think that your ” UNCONSCIONABLE INEPTITUDE” with the BP oil spill is byond INEPT!!! Once again you big mouth and campaign rhetoric has come to bite you. This is the most over his head President in the history of the USA.
