Yesterday in a news conference our President said that he is going to take personal responsibility for the BP oil spill and clean up. My response is: You pompous fool! This is political suicide. Your poll numbers are in the gutter over this mess because people mostly blame your inaction for making this mess worse than it could have been. Now you are basically saying “my bad” and claiming you are going to fix the worse man made disaster in the history of our country? You can’t invoke Bob the Builder and will this to happen like you did in November of 2008. You are going to fail, fail, fail. And it is going to cost you your job and make you an even bigger laughing stock in the eyes of future generations.
At the same news conference our President said he is going to make us part of the clean energy movement, make us competitive with the Chinese with regards to developing new renewable energy resources. I say: Good. Get it done. This needs to be approached with all the vigor of the Manhattan Project. Take from the budgets of failing programs like the “War on Drugs” and redirect them to this idea by declaring a “War on Fossil Fuels”. I also like the idea of offering prize money to individuals and companies that successfully develop technology to achieve this goal. If this works, Barak, you may yet leave a legacy that will make your little girls proud.
