Surprise, Surprise Surprise … Congressional Report Claims Obama Administration Misled About Efforts on BP Oil Spill
Barack Obama was on it since day one, NOT! Some like to say Obama misled, we like to refer to it as, HE LIED!
More Obama “Hope & Change” … Congressional report claims the Obama Administration Misled about efforts on BP Oil spill clean up. What, we are supposed to be surprised? You mean the Obama Administration misled us on the BP oil spill efforts like they did when Obama claimed that his administration would be the most transparent ever and the health care debates would be seen on C-SPAN? You mean like when Obama misled the American public in claiming that Obamacare would lower health care costs and reduce the federal deficits? You mean like when Obama misled the American people prioer to the 2008 Presidental election and claimed he would govern as a moderate and reach across the aisle?
Billy Nungesser, president of New Orleans’ Plaquemines Parish, sensed that a chart showing 140 oil skimmers at work — a chart given to him by BP and the Coast Guard — was “somewhat inaccurate.” So, Nungesser asked to fly over the spill to verify the number.
The flyover was cancelled three times before those officials admitted that just 31 of the 140 skimmers were actually deployed.
The incident is detailed in a report released Thursday by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Republicans say the report provides evidence that the Obama administration misrepresented the assets devoted to the cleanup, misrepresented the timing of when government officials knew there was an oil spill and misrepresented the level of control the government had over the matter. It also claims the Obama administration seemed more interested in public relations than cleaning the mess and plugging the hole.
