“Whatever their motives, the president and his cabinet officers, without any experience in real-world management of anything major, much less a crisis, have no idea how to deal with a situation as technically complex as the Gulf oil spill. It has been left to BP engineers and managers and to Gulf state officials to respond as best they can in a regulatory environment that is politically charged, incompetent, fearful, and hesitant.” – Harrison Schmitt, American geologist, a former NASA astronaut, University Professor and a U.S. Senator for one term.
We elected a feel good president who told us what we wanted to hear, not what we needed to hear. By any measure the last 18 months have been a total disaster. There is no explaining away Obama and the Democrats’ abysmal record. The BP spill is just the latest example of their bungling and political game playing. So steal yourself, things will get worse, much worse. Other dominos are about to fall.
