Wow! Rolling Stone Exposes Obama

Rolling Stone Magazine, not exactly a conservative publication, has a lengthy exposé on Barack Obama with regard to the oil spill in the Gulf. While the publication lays a lot of historical blame on the Bush administration it slams Obama for allowing the lax culture to continue. Rolling Stone makes it clear that Obama said he would put an end to this before he was even elected and that he failed to do it.

Like the attacks by Al Qaeda, the disaster in the Gulf was preceded by ample warnings – yet the administration had ignored them. Instead of cracking down on MMS, as he had vowed to do even before taking office, Obama left in place many of the top officials who oversaw the agency’s culture of corruption. He permitted it to rubber-stamp dangerous drilling operations by BP – a firm with the worst safety record of any oil company – with virtually no environmental safeguards, using industry-friendly regulations drafted during the Bush years. He calibrated his response to the Gulf spill based on flawed and misleading estimates from BP – and then deployed his top aides to lowball the flow rate at a laughable 5,000 barrels a day, long after the best science made clear this catastrophe would eclipse the Exxon Valdez.

Imagine that, a fairly liberal publication exposing that Obama failed to do what he said he would (which seems to be a pattern) and pointing out that the blame is his. He and his sock puppets can blame George Bush but if the claim is made that Bush set the process that allowed this into place and that Obama vowed to change it, and did not, then it is his fault.

Read the article. It is very good and shows how the reality is much different than the picture being painted by Obama and his toadies.

Lack of experience and lack of leadership are not what we need in the White House.

Never surrender, never submit.
