Obama & Dems in Trouble with BP Oil Spill … Voters Say Response to Leak Important in Midterm Elections
More bad polling news for President Barack Obama and House & Senate Democrats. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 71% of American voters rate the government’s response to the BP oil spill as somewhat important as to how they will vote in November’s midterm elections. 71%!!! 35% say that the Obama governments reaction and response to the oil spill is very important.
RUT-ROH, considering Americans have given Obama a failing grade on his respionse and leadership to the oil crisis in the Gulf and have even stated in a Democrat leaning poll, that GWB did a better job with Katrina than Obama with the BP oil spill.
Seventy-one percent (71%) of U.S. Voters rate the government’s response to the Gulf oil leak as at least somewhat important in terms of how they will vote in November, with 35% who say it is Very Important.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% of Likely Voters say the government’s response is not very or not at all important to their upcoming vote.
The Obama administration has come under increasing criticism for its response to the two-month-old – and continuing – oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, which President Obama has labeled the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.
Barack Obama has stated he is in charge, yet he has spent more time on the golf coarse than in the Gulf. Now Obama looks to go to the Gulf coast region all the time for photo ops. Sorry Obama, you do not get a second chance to make a first impression.
The feds handling of this oil spill crisis can only be summed up as absolute shere incompetance. Thank you President Obama for your Executive Branch leadership, the voters will not forget.
Making matters worse and adding insult to further incompetance … the federal governemnt, Coast Guard, blocks the crude oil sucking barges. This is how a disaster is managed? UNREAL!!! The Coast Guard shut down the barges. As NRO states, this is hardly a Chuchillean moment.
Eight days ago, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal ordered barges to begin vacuuming crude oil out of his state’s oil-soaked waters. Today, against the governor’s wishes, those barges sat idle, even as more oil flowed toward the Louisiana shore.
”It’s the most frustrating thing,” the Republican governor said today in Buras, La. “Literally, yesterday morning we found out that they were halting all of these barges.”
Finally the barges were allowed to go do their jobs, 16 of them allowed to finally work 8 DAYS LATER!!!
President Obama claims in his words that he is in charge, but his actions and the CLUSTERF#$K going on in the Gulf coast region show quite a different thing. The more this crisis goes on, the more one just has to scratch their head is disbelief at the Presidental leadership in this fiasco.
