Certainly no one has blamed the President for the actual disaster, but folks are coming out of the woodwork who are critical of his handling of the problem. As I recall, my only comment was that Salazar did have the opportunity to shut it down when he recognized how poorly the permitting process was being handled.
Now, however, it seems as though people from the left to the right of the political spectrum are being critical. Each with a different criticism which has truly become a litany.
I can see only two topics that make me cringe.
1-With all of the vacations, golf and BB games, dinners, that abominable awards ceremony where he fawned all over the contributions of the Beatles as though they were the opening act for the Second Coming or perhaps it was the other way around, wouldn't you think that he would keep a low profile so the country would think of him as being just a tad serious while disaster is surrounding our southern coastal states? I'm as sure as I can be that there would be plenty to keep him busy at the White House.
2-The constant politicization and campaigning and laying the blame on George W every time he opens his mouth. Does he not realize yet that he won and is the President? Shouldn't someone tell him he should start acting with some of that gravitas the Democrats love so much and act Presidential?
Let's all pray for answers to the problems both with illegal immigrants and the devastation of the southern coast, both of which threaten livelihoods and the way of life our friends and neighbors have worked so hard to achieve.
