Resign... or Change, Mr. President

I'm not bashing Obama, just letting you know what's going on...

While defending his own policies President Obama has routinely been rude and sarcastic to his predecessor, George W. Bush. Yet Obama appears to be making the resident of the previous White House look like a genius compared to his own serious missteps in office.

Case in point – Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's performance and the communication of priorities on the issue of oil rig safety in the Gulf of Mexico.

It seems incomprehensible that the president and other members of the administration still have jobs when it is now being reported that the federal government was apprised by BP on February 13 that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig was leaking oil and natural gas into the ocean floor.

In fact, according to documents in the administration's possession, BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the well for roughly ten days in early February.

Further it seems the administration was also informed about this development, six weeks before to the rig's fatal explosion when an engineer from the University of California, Berkeley, announced to the world a near miss of an explosion on the rig by stating, "They damn near blew up the rig."

Which leads me to some questions for the president. If I were in front row of reporters in the White House briefing room, here’s what I’d like to know:

1. It appears, Mr. President, that you were informed by BP about problems on Deepwater Horizon on February 13 and the company wanted your help. What did you say?

2. Given this new revelation, Mr. President, how can you can sleep at night knowing that your inaction cost the lives of eleven men in Louisiana?

3. Did you inform the victims' families about these facts when you invited them to the White House for last month's photo op?

4. You've said, Mr. President, time and again, that the buck stops with you. Doesn’t that statement seem like something bordering on propaganda when you follow it up with what appears to be a false sense of outrage by telling Matt Lauer that you're looking for rear ends to kick?

5. Does the buck stop with you… or not?

6. Are you going to insist that Mr. Salazar step down from his post in disgrace and shame?

7. Will you hold another prime time television press conference and tell the entire truth to the American people? -- These would be the actions of a man who says that the buck "stops" with him.

8. I know when this news was breaking midday on Saturday about the latest BP developments that you and the Vice President were out on the golf course. Was it 39th or 40th time you've played a round in 18 months? (Just for a point of reference President Bush played golf 24 times in eight years.) Never mind, your priorities are for you to decide. At least until election night

I really do feel bad for the people of USA. They believed in this man and he has betrayed you all, and he has allowed an enormous catastrophe to happen and continue for well over a month.

I know its not the same but we all get screwed by our leaders, they offer promises they have no intention of keeping to get into office then once there they drop the hammer, like today's budget in the UK where they have basically widened the gap between rich and poor even further, and bankers who got us into this mess have largely escaped the cuts.

This is human nature and theres really nothing we can actually do about it.

I thought it was an interesting way to present his question, too bad we won't ever get any answers...

Bushco is Obamaco.

Obama may be a good speaker, but the legacy of bush's policies are being furthered under Obama.

One corporate clown replaces another

I voted for neither Bush McCain, nor Obama.

So.... you want President Biden? Or is it Pelosi?

Vote in your local and state elections. You have far more of a chance at impacting policy.

the President is a figurehead.

A lot of people get distracted and lose their eye on the ball. It is all theatre, Obama is part of the Bilderberg, Bohemian grove NWO organisation. When he bashes Bush it is all theatre so it takes away the eyes from the ball.

I have the dark feel that something really disasterous is going to happen and that Obama is trying to prepare himself with gaining the trust of the people. At which he is doing misarable job by the way.

The monetairy system and the ecological system are being distroyed. There are fungi killing bats to extinction which cause insects to eat all the crops, there is the misterious bee problem and who knows what the oil will do to the animals and flowers of the sea. And they are not done yet....

Why...? To distroy what God created and to prevent for humans to be happy.
