I have believed from the beginning that the Deepwater Horizon Disaster was caused by “Dear Leader’s” minions mindlessly manipulating all sorts for disaster, natural and man made for the purpose of furthering their agenda of remaking this country into a Euro-socialist state.  Well, how about this?

President Obama’s carefully scripted scheme to deflect blame for the Gulf oil spill is starting to crumble. A new report from the Center for Public Integrity puts the White House in the spotlight for its failure to acknowledge the government’s own role in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Obama has repeatedly blamed BP for the spill, telling the nation in a televised Oval Office address on June 15: “We will make BP pay for the damage their company has caused.” A day later he pressured BP to set aside $20 billion to pay economic damage to the region.

But in the critical first days after the explosion, the new report reveals the U.S. Coast Guard disregarded its own firefighting policy and might have caused the oil rig to sink — prompting the leak that resulted in the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

I wonder sometimes if their role was more active than this passive negligence would suggest, but I can see this as being the minimum.  Hot Air is all over the story too.

Support for the building of a fence along the Mexican border has reached a new high, and voters are more confident than ever that illegal immigration can be stopped.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of U.S. voters now believe the United States should continue to build a fence on the Mexican border. That’s up nine points from March when the Obama administration halted funding for the fence and the highest level of support ever.

The fence: doing jobs the Federal Government won’t do…

 This should really piss off the 70% of the country that is tired of “Dear Leader’s” imperial attitude and ways:

According to an internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services memo going the rounds of Capitol Hill and obtained by National Review, the agency is considering ways in which it could enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action” — that is, without the consent of the American people through a vote in Congress.

(Emphasis mine)

Isn’t it nice to know that The Won doesn’t give a rip what the American People think?

Lack of Posting

I have been busy with training and work related things and have not had time to post anything. I should be “back” sometime in the next week or so. In the mean time, but sure to check out people in my blog roll.

It’s That High????

Gallup’s 2010 Confidence in Institutions poll finds Congress ranking dead last out of the 16 institutions rated this year. Eleven percent of Americans say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress, down from 17% in 2009 and a percentage point lower than the previous low for Congress, recorded in 2008

Frankly I am surprised that there are even that many people who think that bunch of thieves, liars and knaves are worth of confidence. 

Underscoring Congress’ image problem, half of Americans now say they have “very little” or no confidence in Congress, up from 38% in 2009 — and the highest for any institution since Gallup first asked this question in 1973.

In other words, this is the most hated institution in American Life since, I don’t know, forever? Makes you wonder why the states tolerate it.  The whole Congress should be disbanded, the Federal bureacracy dismissed and the executive department heads tarred and feathered.  I have no use for any of “inside tbe beltway” gang.

So says Shirley Sherrod. 

Shirley Sherrod, the woman at the center of the racism storm that has consumed Washington the past few days, told me she doesn’t know if President Obama supports her, but she welcomes the opportunity to talk to him about it, and to offer a few lessons of her own.

“I can’t say that the president is fully behind me, I would hope that he is…I would love to talk to him,” Sherrod said on “GMA.”

“He is not someone who has experienced what I have experienced through life, being a person of color. He might need to hear some of what I could say to him,” she told me.

Is *she* racist since all criticism of Dear Leader is racist?  Inquiring minds want to know.

William Tate at American Thinker spotlights an Inspector General’s report alleging the GM dealers were allowed to stay open if the were “minority of female owned.”

Decisions on which car dealerships to close as part of the auto industry bailout — closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler — were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky.
[D]ealerships were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority- or woman-owned dealerships. [Emphasis added.]

Thus, to meet numbers forced on them by the Obama administration, General Motors and Chrysler were forced to shutter other, potentially more viable, dealerships. The livelihood of potentially tens of thousands of families was thus eliminated simply because their dealerships were not minority- or woman-owned.

As has been widely reported, the Inspector General’s study skewered the Obama Gang for strong-arming the companies into closing 2,000 dealerships, costing an estimated 100,000 people their jobs during a recession.
One way or another, the decision of which dealers to close was political not business.  More dealers that donated money to Republican candidates were close than those that support Democrats.  Who knows what other back room deals had to be made.  Money kicked back to Dear Leader’s campaign committee?
