Somewhere or other in that interview with Matt Lauer, Our Leader said that wildlife would be affected for maybe “a season or two”.
Lynne Sweet has her uses, she provides the full transcript from Federal Service:
MR. LAUER: Have you allowed yourself to even imagine what the Gulf region will look like if oil continues to spew until August, what it will smell like, what the economic situation will be like down there?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I have. And here’s what I’ll say. This is going to be a mess. It already is. But I’ve been down there, and the people are resilient, and these ecosystems are more resilient than I think we anticipate right now, if we act swiftly, if we act seriously.
There are going to be marshes, for example, where the oil goes in and the sea life that’s there is decimated for a season, maybe two. But potentially we can preserve those estuaries and those marshes so that three years from now things have come back; things have bounced back.
Merely “decimated”? For ”a season, maybe two”. Third year, things will have “bounced back”?
Did not get the play that his expressed desire to fire someone who writes his paycheck – so-to-speak – did… but he said it.
