Obama and crew caught with their pants down doing dirty things.

They did not like the report their "experts" came up with so they added their own paragraphs to the final report AFTER the "experts" had signed off on them!
The "experts" balked when they found out and leaked it to the news. They feel it is unsafe to stop ongoing drilling since this may destabilize the wells and cause more leaks! The whitehouse doesn't care about such trivial things it will not let a good disaster go to waste dammit!

More transparency and not letting a good disaster go to waste from our beloved leader.

Though the report claimed the analysts, picked by the National Academy of Engineering, "peer reviewed" the department's recommendations, the experts say the two paragraphs that called for the moratorium were added only after they signed off on it.

To the contrary, the experts warn that such a moratorium could not only harm the economy but make the situation in the Gulf more dangerous. The April 20 oil rig explosion occurred while the Deepwater Horizon well was being shut down -- a move that is much more dangerous than continuing ongoing drilling, they said...

Not one bit surprised by this, it has become painfully obvious, more than any president in history BO does not represent the people.

I am a former Obama supporter and I can't wait until he's gone.
