President Obama, "Bam Bam", "Brother Bam", Get to the Gulf now! I mean put on some old shoes and go and step into the marsh Man! Louisiana needs to see you! You can't just be eloquent in a situation like this.
For years now, the Republican Right has chanted "Drill Baby! Drill!" admonishing Environmental activists as "Kooks, commies, and quacks"! The Republicans, just last year, were saying that folks who were concerned with the dangers of Off-Shore drilling were out of touch with the desires of the American Public!
Well, here it is! That danger that was ignored is all over the Gulf! Big Oil and Big Business decried Regulation! But we reduced oversight on the banks and look where that got us! Bailout!
We reduced regulation on the oil companies and let them drill!
It's time to regulate them! We can't afford for this to become a trend!
"This is an isolated incident Mr. President!"
So What! So was 9-11 but we still created the Department of Homeland Security and passed the Patriot Act! Ok, I'll admit, both ideas were terrible, but Damn it! Something got done!
Now, get down there and DO Something! Only Do it Smart!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
