Apparently, when simpleton Sarah Palin said that President Obama should call her regarding the BP oil spill, what she would have told him on the phone was: "Call the Dutch!" Seriously, she thinks that the Dutch—because of the story about the boy sticking his finger in the dike—would be experts on how to fix this spill?
It would be funny if it weren't so scary how powerful this idiot is.
Meanwhile, the president's speech on the BP crisis was roundly panned. My problem with the whole thing is...I don't see how this problem gets fixed. It's hard for me to blame him when I don't see a plausible solution that he's failing to see. But he hasn't addressed the issue specifically enough—and that's just going to keep his approvals leaking as long as the oil leaks.
Meanwhile, all the Republicans are BP cheerleaders—and isn't that worse?
