I could be wrong but I, seriously, doubt that one single American placed their vote for US President based on his Oil Industry expertise yet there are now many hot-airheads crying “Why hasn’t Obama stopped the spill of oil into the Gulf?” Well, this is totally absurd if one really cares to think about it. First of all, it was the “drill baby, drill!” philosophy that guaranteed this kind of disaster would, eventually, occur.
What has our president done? He has employed the Top Experts in the World to come up with a way to stop the leak. If you had a legal problem, wouldn’t you want to hire the best attorney, if you could afford it? If you had a water problem in your house, wouldn’t you hire the best plumber? If you had an electrical problem, wouldn’t you hire the best electrician to fix it? This is, exactly, what President Obama has done in this situation. Unfortunately, no one seems to have an answer. Absolutely None of the other major oil companies have offered any solution to this crisis. Why? Because they are in no better position to deal with this kind of problem than BP is. If it happened on one of their oil rigs, they wouldn’t have any notion of how to stop the leak either. This is, precisely, why we need to stop all off-shore drilling and begin to, vigourously, pursue alternative Energy sources like Solar and Wind power.
Go ahead and bash the US President all you want but I challenge each and every bad-mouther to enlighten us all as to what you think he should be doing that he hasn’t already done to address this dire situation, which is Not the result of anything he did or failed to do.
This is the worst environmental disaster in US History and it behooves all who truly care for the environment or the people affected by this crisis to cease their attempts to make political gains from it!
Stop Bashing The President … He’s doing the best that Anyone can! There is not one single person who can prove otherwise. If so, then please step forward, with some facts (please), because I’m sick & tired of people who are more willing to be part of the problem rather than being part of the solution.
