I’m starting to get the feeling that President Obama is no workaholic.
His much trumpeted “War on Petroleum” speech in the Oval Office last week fell flat to most listeners, regardless of political affiliation, because our “genius”, Harvard educated President made it clear to the entire world that he knew less about the Gulf spill than the average 10th grader.
What has this man been doing with his time for the past two months?
You’d think by now Obama would at least have something intelligent to say about containment booms, or sand berms, or the Jones Act, or flow rates, or the coming hurricane season and its possible effects on the cleanup effort.
Sen. George Lemieux had this to say about a recent talk with Obama: “He doesn’t seem to know the situation about foreign skimmers (or) domestic skimmers.”
The President has access to the best information in the world, and yet I would swear the man hasn’t spent 20 minutes on Google researching the spill.
Even the commission Obama so proudly announced that would investigate the disaster and make sure it never happens again isn’t designed to produce any useful information … it doesn’t have one oil expert on it!
They’re just a bunch of left wing political hacks whose transparent purpose is to tell the President exactly what he wants to hear … namely yet another lame excuse for Cap and Trade legislation.
Obama’s ignorance regarding the oil spill, while not necessarily surprising for a man with a penchant for voting “present”, does illustrate one of the root problems with so-called liberal “intellectuals” … when you already know everything, there isn’t anything new to learn.
Is it just me, or do you also get the impression that Obama views his job as President as going from one photo-op to the next?
Obama was in the White House for only a few weeks before he started farming out his authority to dozens of “czars”. There’s a good reason why no other President has ever done that, because what’s the point of being President if you’re not going to make the big decisions yourself?
I wouldn’t be surprised if members of the administration have stopped asking Obama permission for every little thing. As long as it follows the liberal mindset, like trying 911 terrorists in New York City or advocating equal pay for illegal immigrants, they probably figure Obama doesn’t care what they do.
No wonder Obama has ample free time for rock concerts and 5 hour golf sessions. He basically handed over his presidency to a collection of left wing radicals who are busy doing the job for him.
