The latest situation with the Gulf oil disaster and the
spin by our supreme leader reminds me of the movie "Jaws".
I order to project the "warm fuzzy" feeling that he is
actually in control, and has leadership knowledge of the
situation, we see this headline in the Yahoo news
"Obama: Go to Gulf beaches; most still open, clean"
At a White House news conference Thursday, Obama said while three beaches in Louisiana have been fouled by oil, the rest of the region's beaches are clean and safe. He says Gulf state governors have asked him "to remind everybody" the beaches are open.
There is a six mile long muck monster lurking below the
surface of the water.
It's tendrils are already reaching the southern coast of
the country as I write. Killing everything it touches. Harming even those
things it doesn't touch (note reports of workers being rushed
to hospital because of fits of dizziness.
And Mr. Vacation in Chicago, golf not Gulf, back seat driver is
telling us to ignore reality. Monsters in the water - 'Fugetaboutit'.
Just make sure to spend your hard earned money at the local
beach resort. Jump and play on the beautiful 'black gold' sands of
our southern beaches.
I have it all under control.
I won't be there in person, but I will be there in spirit.
The ploy backfired in "Jaws" and it isn't going to work here.
How about you start acting like a President, and stop playing
spoiled brat, rich boy with our money and lives.
