I see Obama is still saying he’ll pursue off shore drilling “only if no spills can be ensured”.
He said that the first week, too. No new lines, I guess.
Can this fuck up get more transparent? Or weak.
In the same Reuters report:
Creating a commission helps Obama show leadership in a crisis that has drawn heavy criticism not only of companies’ safety practices but also loose government oversight.
I heard Al Gore (we’ll fight elections to the death! We will, someday!) say a week ago that the whole world looks to America as the natural leader.
I don’t think so. They say it at the point of a gun, not otherwise.
* well… of course not being a Bible devotee I mangled the quote from Matthew:
‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
