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.

In the immortal words wrote at Michelle … Viva la transparency!

      Alinsky taught that lies were acceptable and
      recommended as a means to an end for radicals.
      Obowma, in turn, lived and taught Alinsky approach.
      Actually, a liar by any other name is still a liar. It
      should be alarming that the technique being employed
      to ‘Totally Transform’ America relies on LIES. Not
      much good to come from that.

      Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up his policies so far. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it

      Forum broken….
      SM: Not broken, had maintenance done on it last night.

      obama lied to the electoral leading up to the election and was elected under false pretensions….
      time to hold him accountable and start Impeachment proceedings…..The ground swell is picking up…with a Republican House and Senate after the November elections…..maybe there is Hope for Change….

      I have reached a troubling conclusion based upon what I have observed. Obama is purposely letting the Gulf suffer and the reason he’s doing it is because he wants to implement Cap and Trade and more cynically he doesn’t like the British. One of his first acts as President was to send a gift (bust of Winston Churchill) back to England? What the hell kind of President does something like that? Nobody, and I mean nobody, including the most incompetent moron in any business would do what Obama has done to deal with this crisis. He’s not that dumb. He’s doing it on purpose and he’s a cold bastard. He couldn’t care less all the jobs lost, people suffering because of his actions and inactions, and the Americans that will be affected for generations because of what he has done. He doesn’t like the British, he doesn’t like capitalists, he’s an idealogue, and he’ll do what he has to do to make life miserable for them. Think the Reverend Wright when you look at all his actions and then it all makes sense.
      SM: Agreed. The actions or inactions that Obama has taken in the Gulf coast are so inept and incompitant that they almost have to be perceived as on purpose.

      The LEFT used to call GWB stupid, with that standard what would one call Obama’s leadership and handling of the BP oil spill?

      Just to clarify things, Billy Nugesser is president of Plaquemines Parish, the parish (county) right next to New Orleans. Plaquemines Parish has nothing to do with Orleans Parish, other than they are side by side on the map. It is an incorrect statement to say he’s president of New Orleans’ Plaquemine Parish, becasue New Orleans (Orleans Parish) has nothing to do with Plaquemines Parish – they are two separate parishes (counties for everyone else).
      SM: Does it really diminish what he said?

    9. books on July 3rd, 2010 12:36 pm

      No, I was just clarifying it for people who don’t live down here. I don’t know who’s been more vocal over the lack of help from O’bummer & Co. – Jindal or Nungesser. Seems O’bummer & Co. doesn’t want to hear what any of our officials are saying, and he certainly doesn’t want to help us.

      Don’t forget obummer went to a Madrasas(sic) and learned the Qu’ran and Muslims are also taught that it’s alright to lie..

      Jindal is not taking the word of the U.S. Coast Guard regarding working boats and other on-shore work groups. He has brought in twenty National Guard troops to report directly to him on the daily activities towards the clean-up.
      The on-shore groups that have been filmed are an absolute joke. The amount of work going on is less than a group of sixth grade students could accomplish.
      I don’t know how much more the people can endure. It is time to litterly squash the Democratic Party into nothingness at the polls in November.

      I live overseas and have watched Obamas rise to power from the start as its about the only history of him that cant be sealed.
      I have seen him racially divide your country like never before and do see he does not care or understand the sea is a non partisan ocean.
      Its even connected to our oceans too and its a crime he has prevented clean up just to further his political agenda, I do wonder if he wants you to suffer like he claims his people have under whites hands.
      Read his books and you will hear his veiled racism and hate between the radicals in his life about typical white people.
      Face it 20 years of Wright appealed to him until the media exposed it, even then he saw nothing wrong with his churchs views and awards to Farrakan.
      Obama would have had many night being mentored by the bigot Wright on politics.
      Obama seems to lie alot but has help from media to create a new term like Misspoke or misled as if it is not just plain old lieing.
      While Obama fiddles the ocean is still leaking and life is ending. Why not just blow it up and seal the leak, it has worked for Obama and his original birth certificate. He sealed that fast and air tight so he can do things when he wants.

      #12 Sadly Sir you are correct. The whole world knows he is a fraud and many many many helped him in this takeover of this Country. Now, will anyone help us expose and remove this fraudulent President from office?

    14. Michelle Smith on July 4th, 2010 11:57 am

      Jindal is trying to get things done but he’s only getting resistance from our lackadaisical government. The majority of us know that Obama does not want to fix the problem; he wants to use this to further his agenda. Hell Obama & his administration are the problem. They have no desire to protect Americans, their desire is to destroy America and turn us into a third world Country.

      SICKENING beyond belief

      Where are all the strident environmentalists to hold O’bama’s feet to the fire on this Gulf catastrophe? In the face of such mind-boggling environmental and economic disaster, not only is the administration deceptive and conniving, and the press slavishly complicit in shielding the truth, but the environmentalists do not holler and scream WHEN THERE IS ACTUALLY A DESERVING CAUSE TO CHAMPION, instead of the phony issues they support when there is political hay to make.
      SM: Hell, Obama;s EPA is much to blame for the disaster caused by the oil spill in not allowing ships to help and preventing other measures from being used.
