Or is it the media that leads the insanity? At a time when the economists all agree the only thing that will bring back jobs is confidence of Corporate America in a turn around of the economy the media is busy talking about OBama in his fancy pants at the gulf. All of the cable news and networks main line of attack is how OBama does not show emotions enough. Would we really feel better seeing the man who leads the Free World looking like a bum and shedding tears?
Hasn’t the media spilled their guts for years about candidates as well as elected officials looking weak and unprofessional when they did shed a tear? Or have they all forgotten about the media circus around Walter Mondale, that they created? Have they all gone nuts! Are we just as bad? The latest polls show that 57% of the Country thinks that OBama is not doing enough about the oil crises in the gulf.
I do apologize to the 37% that does seem to understand that government has nothing to do with British Petroleum’s obvious neglect of the problem that arose and their callous disregard for safety of the people over their profit margin, and still have their sanity about them yet. I do not include you in this post. Why is it so much easier for the rest of you to always blame government and give Corporate a free ride even when they prove they do not care about “we the People” but only the bottom line of profits, time and time again? Corporate pays their political cronies in both special favors and donations and have hired people,lobbyists and media to lie for years and yet you believe them over government.
The facts are the Federal government cannot do anything more than what it has done because at this point British Petroleum cannot do more than what it is already doing to stop the flow of oil. All the best scientists have been asked for their help despite the media giving the politicians or other interests their 2 minute bite to state otherwise.
When it comes to making payments to the businesses BP will move sadly at their own speed. Obama has placed pressure on them to do more than they currently are doing. I’m certainly not defending BP but we can all bet they are getting false claims at least at the same rate they are getting legitimate claims because unfortunately tragedy draws these kinds of derelicts.
This is untested territory in that this is the worse disaster in the history of oil companies. No one in truth, knows what they are doing. B.P. has never been in the market to lose money. That is a fact that we can all count on. The longer this disaster goes on the more money British Petroleum will lose. Unless mankind learns the unknown through trial and error, many times, they do not have the answers. Life does not get solved in real life like it does on television. The last thing BP wants is for this disaster to continue. That is the greatest fact of all.
Six months after OBama got into office we had the nut cases running loose in America screaming that OBama hadn’t done enough to turn around the economy or to save jobs. We have the Tea Party screaming conspiracy with the government in every facet of our lives and others bound and determined to get rid of Social Security. Never mind that before the Bush administration drained the Social Security funds it was the only government program that was working.
Somehow despite all this media lead insanity foreclosures dropped 3% this month and unemployment has dropped to the level it was at in 2008 before OBama took office. I have spoken a lot of the need to show emotions on the family level but I assure you with the mess that Obama was left with if he did show emotions the press and the Republicans would be all over it. From day one they have wanted evidence to use against him that he was not yet experienced enough to be president. I haven’t a doubt, and neither should you, of what a Circus both would make if he looked or acted anything less than Presidential.
If OBama had gone in and demanded a show of regulations and standards having been met in the oil industry prior to the disaster the Republicans would have been all over that screaming how the government under OBama’s care was nothing more than a regulatory company whose only goal was to straggle free enterprise or something as equally prophetic.
What created the economical disaster that we are in seperate from the gulf crisis was that government took off all regulations that allowed the greedy to go wild. I assure you that any attempt made to put the regulations in place will only set off the Republicans as well as the nuts that scream conspiracy.
Now we have the media and the nut cases running around saying that OBama doesn’t emote enough or dresses too well or doesn’t care about us. He only cares about health care. Gee I wonder who he has had to fight tooth and nail to get this watered down package for if not for the people inspite of the nuts being the ones that have been heard.
At this point the non-vote of the Republicans clearly shows that they are against any regulation of the insurance companies because at present the healthcare that could get passed was more insurance reform than healthcare reform and even that has been vetoed by the Republicans.
First we scream that government is too much in our lives and then we scream that government doesn’t care and is not doing enough in our lives. I for one am grateful that we have a president through all the messes that he is up against has shown all of us how to keep our heads down and to keep cool when under attack. It is way pass time that we let him do his job and the media report what really matters. For instance how their pettiness caused OBama to cancel a trip to Asia and thereby upsetting the Asian Nations at a time that we need all the friends that we can get.
