Dear President Obama,
In this great time of need we are looking to Washington to lead, follow, or get out of the way. So far your administration has been willing to do anything but. When great action is needed, we are still on the starting blocks. When words of wisdom are being waited to be heard by citizens whose lives are being impacted you send out Robert Gibbs. When a clear concise location of the accident has been discussed, the Head of Homeland security identified the Ocean of Mexico.
To be fair, you have spoken with resolve on this matter. You have made it clear who is responsible when you said, “Let me be clear: BP is responsible for this leak. BP will be paying the bill.." Quietly behind the scene Nancy Pelosi and the Three Stooges are discussing raising the Federal Tax on oil 32 cents a barrel or quadrupling the existing tax. If BP is responsible for the leak and will be paying the bill, why are they trying to raise $11 billion (11,000,000,000) over the next ten years? Is that how long you are planning to take to fix this situation?
BP is continuing to attempt one never before tested method to resolve this crisis after another. And again you have taken the action of using the force of language in the situation by saying: “And while there will be time to fully investigate what happened on that rig and hold responsible parties accountable, our focus now is on a fully coordinated, relentless response effort to stop the leak and prevent more damage to the Gulf.” So far, your relentless response has been: "Plug The Damn Hole". I suppose that is relentless, such harsh words to be spoken to someone or an organization who donated more to your campaign than to any candidate in any previous election. Maybe you can get the U.N. to draft a resolution that oil and water don’t mix.
President Bush was criticized after hurricane Katrina for not acting before the Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco (D), requested action. Now you are refusing to act after the Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal (R), has: submitted a plan, amassed resources, and is standing on the coast waiting for approval to begin the process. You are still waiting on the results of an “Environmental Impact Review” of building sand berms. Never having considered the impact if you don’t build the berms.
This can be but a mere foreshadowing for Dec 23, 2012. Should something actually happen like an asteroid comes hurling through the great cosmos towards our plant, we now know what the response will be. First you will seek a New World Order to come together and devise a plan to deal with the situation. Then you will commission a Galactic Impact Review of the effects of destroying or adjusting the course of the object that will spell certain doom for the entire human race and all living creatures should it reach Earth. While the plan is being studied by college professors, you will have to seek the assistance of foreign nations to travel to space to view the asteroid because you retired our space fleet. All the while that citizens of planet Earth are watching the countdown to impact with anticipation, Congress will be raising taxes to fund their own escape.
