Conservatives seek gov't solutions after oil spill: "All along the Gulf Coast, where the tea party thrives and "socialism" is a common description for any government program, conservatives who usually denounce federal activism suddenly are clamoring for it."
Ironic that hypocrites always yell the loudest for "their" rights!
Damned if he doesn't, damned if he does, mainstream corporate media and bobble head pundits will always make sure President Obama does not come out ahead:
CROWLEY:... this was President Obama and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad week...
CALMES:...the problem is...he had a very long meeting behind closed doors with the people who are actually responding to this, the state officials and the disaster response people. He met no real people and cleaned no real dirty birds and didn't see any oil to speak of besides quarter-sized tar balls. This week he....did have some very effective meetings and photo-ops with real people...Thursday he's going to meet with the survivors of the 11 who were killed in the explosion of the DeepWater Horizon rig, which is overdue...But...it looks reactive.
This was another CNN overt attempt to create a negative opinion!
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) has been a man apart in his low-key response to the catastrophic oil leak still gushing in the Gulf of Mexico. Barbour, a former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, has consistently insisted that pretty much every reaction to the spill has been an overreaction.
MEMO to Haley Barbour: Sometimes it doesn't pay to stick to Sarah Palin's "Drill, baby drill talking points."
Ms. Palin has even switched from "Drill Baby drill" in the Gulf of Mexico to "Drill, baby drill" in Alaska and ANWR!
Barbour the consummate Repuglican dopey politician wanting to cover his rear end while keeping the support of the conservative faithful, speaking from both sides of his mouth had this to say:
... On Tuesday, when oil actually washed ashore on an island off the coast of his state, Barbour initially sounded a different note. "This could turn out to be something catastrophic and terrible," Barbour said, before adding, "but that has just not been the case so far."
I have to wonder if he realizes what a buffoon he really is?
