This is nothing new whatsoever because that's the majority of politics.
A sham, a bamboozle, a dog and pony show, it does not matter whether it is those idiots running BP, or the idiot running the White House.
I'm tired of listening to the talking heads and their masters.
I am not listening to their lies, cover-ups, and crimes anymore.
It just has become far too easy and far too obvious since I know what I know about politics, politicians, and the liars that they are paid to
The Gulf of B.P. Oil Disaster : A National Emergency Situation and Smoke On the
Notice how this is building, and building, to where it will soon be a bigger disaster?
It is all the same two-faced entity, depending upon which face they decide to show to us, depending upon which they are trying to get from us.
TheMythLives, you seriously need to read this book, about the fallacy of Presidency.
The Cult of the
Presidency: America's Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power
Amazon Review :
The Bush years have given rise to fears of a resurgent Imperial Presidency.
Those fears are justified, but the problem cannot be solved simply by bringing a new administration to power.
In his provocative new book, The Cult of the Presidency, Gene Healy argues that the fault lies not in our leaders but in ourselves.
When our scholars lionize presidents who break free from constitutional restraints, when our columnists and talking heads repeatedly call upon the
"commander in chief " to dream great dreams and seek the power to achieve them--when voters look to the president for salvation from all problems
great and small--should we really be surprised that the presidency has burst its constitutional bonds and grown powerful enough to threaten American
The Cult of the Presidency takes a step back from the ongoing red team/blue team combat and shows that, at bottom, conservatives and liberals agree on
the boundless nature of presidential responsibility.
For both camps, it is the president's job to grow the economy, teach our children well, provide seamless protection from terrorist threats, and
rescue Americans from spiritual malaise.
Very few Americans seem to think it odd, says Healy, "when presidential candidates talk as if they're running for a job that's a combination of
guardian angel, shaman, and supreme warlord of the earth."
Healy takes aim at that unconfined conception of presidential responsibility, identifying it as the source of much of our political woe and some of
the gravest threats to our liberties.
If the public expects the president to heal everything that ails us, the president is going to demand--or seize--the power necessary to handle that
Interweaving historical scholarship, legal analysis, and trenchant cultural commentary, The Cult of the Presidency traces America's decades-long
drift from the Framers' vision for the presidency: a constitutionally constrained chief magistrate charged with faithful execution of the laws.
Restoring that vision will require a Congress and a Court willing to check executive power, but Healy emphasizes that there is no simple legislative
or judicial "fix" to the problems of the presidency.
Unless Americans change what we ask of the office--no longer demanding what we should not want and cannot have--we'll get what, in a sense, we
Between the corporations, like BP, stalling to force the Presidential Administration to pay them to clean up this mess, and the President stalling
because he has no idea of how to force BP to clean up their mess I'm done.
This is exactly why I have never had customer loyalty to any one brand of oil company, gasoline company, or car company, I buy what is the best value
for my dollar, based upon criteria that has nothing to do with bling.
A car gets you from point A to point B just as the gasoline that gets you there.
As far as I am concerned both BP and Obama are liars and I'm not buying it.
Never again will I listen to a single word uttered out of the liars in Washington D.C.
This is nothing more than a sham, a con, and a conspiracy to force us to buy into the next piece of legislation which will force our hands to pull our
wallets out of our pockets to purchase "eco-friendly"
cars via Congressional mandate.
I'm not buying the lies and I'm not buying a P.O.S. "eco-friendly" car either.
Because those greedy jerks in Washington D.C. and their think-tanks could not convince enough of us that the threat of "Global Warming"
I believe wholeheartedly the entire event in the Gulf of Mexico was done, via sabotage, just to force this slimey leglislation, which fits with
Know what politicians and dirty diapers have in common?
They're both full of crap.
The thread below is from two years ago and it speaks of what I saw then.

The only thing I did not have forecast was the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
Everything else is dead on the money.
