Blogging the Gulf Oil Spill

Lots of my blogging buddies are talking about OilBama this morning and this photo creation by The Master of Photo Shop Carol is priceless!  Love it!  Carol is finding humor in Toby Hamden's piece which I found pretty funny, too.  I mean, the entire situation in the Gulf is so not funny, but Hamden eviscerates OilBama and his response to the crisis.  This line, in particular, summed it up for me, as well as for Carol:

His approach to the issue was that of the law student suddenly fascinated by a science project. 

Exactly.  Perfect.  

Little Miss Attila makes an excellent point, which, I'm sure, the environmentalists will ignore:

Folks, what the hell is so much less delicate about the Gulf of Mexico than ANWR, where we could drill much more safely than in the Gulf? Nothing—that’s what. The ecosystems in the Gulf are far more vulnerable than those in ANWR—as are the local economies that depend on them.
Gateway Pundit has video of Liz Cheney's evaluation of Obama's response:

"Going down to Louisiana and saying, 'Gosh, you know I'm heartbroken,  I'm angry,  I'm frustrated, and then going on vacation to Chicago really doesn't send a message that this is a man who is leading."

She's correct; as I said earlier, appearances count for something.  That's why George W. Bush quit playing golf after the outbreak of the Iraq war because he said,

"I didn't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

Clearly, Obama doesn't share that opinion.

No, he's Mr. Cool, Mr. Cerebral, "the most intelligent president" we've ever had.

And finally, don't miss Don Surber, who ties it all together, nicely.

I loved Rush Limbaugh's take on "Just plug the damned hole!" statement.

Rush said if he were a father, getting ready to go to work, and his daughter stuck her head in the bath room and asked, "Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?" He would have to reply, "That's none of your business."

How can you make an oil disaster worse than it already is? You stop drilling. Somehow the oil patch has worked just fine until Obama decides they aren't doing things correctly and it is his responsibility to fix something that none in Washington know little about. So we can no be assured of paying more for all oil products, being more dependent on foreign sources, increasing unemployment and adding more layers to the Federal bureaucracy. Everyting this guy does seems to be against the economy and our recovery, can we stand another 2 years?
