Now that BP totally ignored US orders about the cap again, it’s time for the UK prime minister to set Jr.jr straight. Here’s a Moonie Times headline on it DESPITE OIL SPILL ‘CATASTROPHE’ CAMERON STANDS UP FOR BP (why quotation marks under “catastrophy”? And why “oil spill”?)
and one in Metro NY (next to the Playboy story) AS GULF DISASTER UNFOLDS, OBAMA AND CAMERON TRADE NICETIES
In NYC, Metro piles on the Palin melee and reports further screwing of the passengers by the MTA following the old pattern: less service, more expensive..
USA Today gets cover of the day for reporting on oil-kill and war death toll
Even Washington Times pays a bit of attention to the oil-kill today, together with Blago’s “mud pies”
In Florida, they worry about Alex’s effect on the oil-kill
in NYC, NY Post milks the spy story day 3 with their favorite no longer red headed spy
and AM NY moans and bitches on the benefit of us. East Siders for the change of the fireworks on the other side of the Isle of Manhattan (I still trust my roof with a view)
Having declared that he cannot suck the oil with a straw and having deployed his strongest weapon “teh speech”, Obama decided the oil-kill is done and it’s time to “turn a corner” (where we can’t see it) Or, in other words, just as he did with any job he’s ever held, he is bored now with the “inconvenience” in the gulf (to use BP vernacular)
Has the president turned the corner on the oil drilling crisis?
This week’s schedule for President Obama suggests that the White House believes he has. After dominating the conversation in Washington all last week, the environmental crisis in the Gulf of Mexico does not appear front and center on the White House calendar.
The oil may be flowing in the ocean but it seems – or so the White House thinks – blame has been shifted
Still, there appeared to be a significant shift in the public relations last week, as anger was increasingly directed at BP and its CEO, Tony Hayward, instead of at the president and his administration.
And the debacle of Texas Rep. Joe Barton apologizing to BP — and then apologizing for his apology — forced Republicans off of their attack lines for several days.
Sucks to be him!
There is a problem however with turning corners too often (assuming they did in any way)
As the cartoon with W – who used the expression one time too often demonstrates, the trouble with turning corners is that…3 times, you’re back.
Because BP’s oil-kill can’t be expected to do everything, today at the whaling summit Obama is expected to argue for killing them outright (lifting the ban on whaling)
Meanwhile, in NYC, from Daily News no less, Obama’s golfing gets noticed – at least by the GOP according to the paper. The rest of us would feel he should gold all the time, damn it!
LA Times serves us the cornucopia of disasters – the war (one of them) and the oil-kill causing mental stress
From Alabama, a history of BP lies – how they got 100 times bigger with the estimates
In Luisiana they keep their hopes in the relief drill
while in Mississipi a new substance comes ashore – hey, maybe we should give BP a Nobel prize for chemistry
Wall Street Journal writes how BP managed to “blunt US’s demand” – apparently 20 minutes photo op with Obama can only accomplish that much
From Missouri (not Chicago) a bit on Blago’s trial
Elsewhere in NYC, the talk of the tabloids is dirty subways
and Metro too
