Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
June 30, 2010
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced. The oil spill represents just the latest blow to an area that has already suffered significant hardship. In addition to fighting the spill, conducting environmental cleanup, and ensuring such a crisis does not happen again, we must help the Gulf Coast and its people recover from this tragedy. A long-term plan to restore the unique beauty and bounty of this region is therefore necessary.
As I announced on June 15, 2010, and pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I assign to the Secretary of the Navy (Secretary) the responsibility to lead the effort to create a plan of Federal support for the long-term economic and environmental restoration of the Gulf Coast region, in coordination with States, local communities, tribes, people whose livelihoods depend on the Gulf, businesses, conservationists, scientists, and other entities and persons as he deems necessary. In addition to working with these stakeholders, the Secretary shall coordinate, as appropriate, with the heads of executive departments and agencies, as well as offices within the Executive Office of the President (collectively, executive branch components).
A Presidential Memorandum is NOT an Executive Order.
I'm wondering if our Dictator In Training Pants knows, understands, or even cares about the distinction.
By the way, if you didn't know, for some strange reason, the oil is still coming out of the hole(s) in the ocean floor where The Deepwater Horizon was located (A heartfelt r.i.p. to the crew who are still there). I think it would be kind of nice if somebody somewhere in a moderate position of authority would allow us, the unwashed masses, in on the little secret of what the plan is to halt the 'little problem' and maybe just for the heck of it, when it might be convenient for someone to give it a bit of a go.
I've a question for Vladimir and anyone else who knows 'da unnawatta erl bidness'....... What's the odds of this itty-bitty leak has gone so far as there's a big ol' mess under the sea floor and there's a big to do "down hole" - as in multiple fractures and 'go up' points ?
