Malfeasance Defined: Obama

    The congressional hearings of American oil executives showed that the people that were actually successful in the business, the American oil rigs in the gulf, the ones that never had the safety lapses that BP was continually cited for were never consulted by the Obama administration.

    Let’s repeat that again: The experts in the field who actually drill and operate deep water oil wells were never consulted by the administration for ideas on how to stop the leak.

    I guess they’re not green enough, like BP.

    KC reminds me in the comments that the people/countries that actually know how to clean up oil spills that offered their help immediately were told to fuck off by the Feds. Some of them have been grudgingly recontacted since the voters are all pissed off.

    This is deliberate, folks. Nobody could be that incompetent.

    And what else but deliberate malfeasance could it be that his handpicked “expert” deliberately falsified scientists’ conclusions (who recommended that drilling in the gulf continue) to recommend that there be a 6-month moratorium in which he KNOWS that the rigs will LEAVE and not be back for years? And he wants to force BP to pay for temporary unemployment for those rig workers and support people that HE kicked out of work? Bastard. Whose going to pay their mortgages? I’ve got new for you, slick. Unemployment benefits won’t.

    This also bears repeating – the people who know what to do, how to do it, with the equipment to do it AND offered to DO it were ignored/insulted/told to bugger off.

    Yep. I just read that the oil sucking barges ordered by Bobby Jindal were turned back by the Feds because they couldn’t confirm (the Feds) that there were enough life preservers on board.
