Fearless Reader’s Dead Zone

Toby Hamden, writing for The Telegraph, notes that “When any political leader feels they have to declare that they are ‘fully engaged’ in an issue, it is clear that they are in trouble. Talking about it undermines the very point you are trying to make—not to mention that pesky Oil Spill Cam showing that, forty days into the Deepwater Horizon disaster, not a whole lot had been achieved.”

When the president-in-training visited Grande Isle, LA on May 28, 2010 he looked like a “law student suddenly fascinated by a science project.”  Hamden’s description made me giggle uncontrollably.

Another delightful descriptive, which incidentally makes me love Toby Hamden now, was:  “Obama engaged in the obligatory populist bashing of Big Oil and, of course, demonstrated the Obama Administration’s version of Tourette’s Syndrome, blaming the previous administration for the situation when, by my reckoning, it’s a full 16 months since Bush left office.”

Hamden rightly points out that Friday’s visit was Obama’s second to Louisiana in the thirty-nine days since disaster struck.  In the same period, Bush visited the post-Katrina region seven times.

USS Neverdock implores us to take a quick look at Obama’s record, something the left wing media steadfastly refused to do during the campaign, shows he is unfit to be president. Add these home field disasters to Obama’s miserable handling of the economy and foreign affairs, and the writing is on the wall—America is headed for disaster.

Little Miss Attila contends that parallels between the Gulf oil spill and the RMS Titanic continue.

How long will it be before this man-child orders the Oil Spill Cam shut down?  The mesmerizing images from the sea bed are infuriating the American public and give unadulterated evidence that this is not Obama’s Katrina—it is his Dead Zone.
