Given the Dems’ opposition to any drilling whatsoever (except by China off America’s shores and Mexico in the Gulf while American companies are moratoriumed), would it be cynical to wonder if the Obama Administrations horrendously incompetent and super slo-mo response to the oil leak is intentional?
The team assembled to investigate it is long on ideologues, short on technical expertise. Obama turned down help from 23 of 28 countries. He impedes those who are actually trying to stop the oil from spreading. Miles of oil boom go ignored in a warehouse.
Obama could do any number of things to smoothen the oil cleanup… But he’d rather play golf.
I wouldn’t be the first to ponder so:
This guy does really not want to be president. He doesn’t want to deal with America’s problems. He wants to make sure he gets his transformation done. So, we had an oil slick, added benefit… Now we can cancel offshore drilling. – Rush Limbaugh
Maybe they want to prolong this fiasco as long as possible in order to turn public sentiment against drilling for oil – thus benefiting their crony alternative energy plans? (Not that Big Oil aren’t their cronies too.)

What took you so long?
In related tactics, Obama probably spent all that money keeping his birth records hidden in order to keep baiting birthers, so that he has an easy-to-reach red herring/ad hominem defense to toss whenever valid criticisms of his performance as President surface.
(But we found it anyway.)
Sarah Palin would already be on the case if she were in charge. Yet another example of how Sarah Palin – or anyone else for that matter – couldn’t possibly be a worse President than the Teleprompter Messiah.
