Two years ago: We still remember the Deep Water Horizon Incident (with video)

Long time readers of this blog are familiar with the Deep Water Horizon Incident Timeline, which is still the most visited page on this website and which is still being used by media, academics and interested members of the public.

The video you see below may seem a bit dramatic, but it doesn’t even begin to describe the level of incompetence displayed by Barack Obama two years ago this summer. He played golf, took vacations, gave speeches and failed to even mention the situation in the gulf seven straight weeks in a row in his weekly radio address.

Those of us who live and work on the Gulf Coast will never forget the ineptitude, and absolutely nothing in this video is unsupported. Watch the video, go read the timeline, then come back and watch the video again. It’s four minutes long but could have been 40 and still won’t have covered everything.

How anybody could continue to support this idiot is inconceivable.

The no-drill moratorium he ruthlessly imposed is still costing this country thousands of jobs and billions in economic output.
