some interesting headlines
what they say
they live from day to day in Fla
but nowhere did I find this headline
Why did the Obama administration just approve more than 400 new leases for oil companies to operate in the Gulf of Mexico?
I guess it’s not for small people to know.
.and just to mess with your heads, I’ll add a quote from Jonah Goldberg (Lucienne’s son) - because it makes sense (broken watch rule) and demonstrates all political stripes agree on this
It’s like a Tonight Show joke.
Leno: “The president is so dorky . . . ”
Audience: “How dorky is he?”
“He’s so dorky, when he gets angry he convenes a panel of experts to tell him whose ass to kick.”
Trying to look tough, like Dukakis did haplessly riding around on that tank in the picture that spoke a million words (and sank a presidential campaign), Obama decided to use a four-letter word to show how serious he is about those mean fellows at BP and their errant flow of oil. Except that this president is so inept that he could only manage three of the requisite four letters. He told NBC’s Matt Lauer that he has been visiting the oil spill region “so I know whose ass to kick”. I mean, raise your hand if you think that that little display of anger for the cameras was about as authentic as Cheese Whiz.
Rich and criminals try to get little people at each others throats again –
in this new meme that NY Post advances today – BP thinks it’s England you see. Maybe I’ll call them UK then..And notice how Murdoch’s NY paper phrases this from UK’s P.O.V (OBAMA DRAWS BP FIRE)
And during this attempt of billionaires to hide behind little people, Mississippi becomes the 4ths state with oil in their fresh water
.And BP-s UK’s lies keep being revealed – it’s 100 milllion gallons in the ocean now
.Stars and Stripes picks the Arlington Story
.while Newsday covers another funeral of a soldier
.and in South Carolina the strange Dem nominee is certified – they’re stuck!
.I’ll end with one piece of uplifting news re: oil-kill
When Fleet Street talks, Wall Street listens!
For some days now, a meme flies over the pond about poor BP getting a raw deal from “bitter Americans”. Not surprisingly Mayor Moneybags sees his BP stock go down and tells us
“The guy who runs BP didn’t exactly go down there and blow up the well,” the
Oh, well! Could the zero people who are out there, promoting the idea that BP CEO Tony Hayward went down to the Deepwater Horizon oil rig to personally blow it up kindly shut up?
“And what’s more if you want them to fix it and they’re the only ones with expertise, I think I might wait to assign blame until we get it fixed,” Bloomberg said.
He concluded sarcastically:
“There’s got to be someone who’s culpable in everything. C’mon.”
That’s the guy Obama supported over the Dem candidate, btw.
Bloomberg: Obama’s Basically On a Fixed Income
.In Bloomberg’s vocabulary, fixed income is when an oil spill doesn’t affect your portfolio.
Since the UK meme started with the Mayor of London, and was supported by the Mayor of NYC, here’s the response of the Mayor of NOLA
“Quite frankly, I would suggest that London Mayor Boris Johnson park his anger at the waters’ edge and redirect it towards BP,” Landrieu said. “This is not America vs. Great Britain. It’s people, families and their livelihoods versus a negligent corporation that is responsible for the loss of 11 lives and an oil spill that threatens our coast, our environment, and our economy.
“In fact, our entire way of life is at risk. So we are going to hold BP accountable for the damage done,” he said. “While Mayor Johnson is concerned about their pension funds, we’re concerned about the lives and livelihoods of our people.”
mentioning the ocean and birds and fishes would have been nice too.
