'Obama's Katrina': an Illustrated Timeline

Doug Ross' hard hitting discussion of the time between the Deepwater Horizon explosion and the President's WTF moment of realizing that he had a sure-nuff problem on his hands.

'Obama's Katrina': an Illustrated Timeline

Ross does a masterful job of laying out how Obama fiddled while the Gulf of Mexico "burned." Pathetic.

Even that right-wing rag, The New York Times, says that the useless manchild / masterful orator we have as a President dicked around too long:

The timetable is damning. The blowout occurred on April 20. In short order, fire broke out on the rig, taking 11 lives, the rig collapsed and oil began leaking at a rate of 40,000 gallons a day. BP tried but failed to plug the well. Even so, BP appears to have remained confident that it could handle the situation with private resources (as did the administration) until Wednesday night, when, at a hastily called news conference, the Coast Guard quintupled its estimate of the leak to 5,000 barrels, or more than 200,000 gallons a day.

Only then did the administration move into high gear.

Extra Point: What's the likelihood that Mr. Obama is met with some angry Cajuns when he visits "ground zero" today?

Yeah, that timeline's cute, isn't it? Not backed up by facts or anything. But still. Pretty pictures to keep people amused - that can't be a bad thing, can it?

By the way, isn't it socialist for the government to be doing this? Where in the Constitution does it say that the government should be cleaning up a private company's oil? I think you need to put together a free-market solution to a disaster like this.

And for constitutional authority of government to regulate the oil industry, and respond to crises caused by accidents, look up the "commerce clause," since that's the one you snarky leftists rely on so heavily.

Indeed, the phrase "Obama's Katrina" has been used to compare the difficulties encountered in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. But let's turn to the world of technology. The DPS-275EB-A - Dell Red 275-Watts Power Supply is a dependable competitor when compared to the tech sector. A dependable power source is the foundation of any computer system, offering stability and unflinching support in the face of digital storms, much as a strong infrastructure is essential in navigating catastrophes.
