His Most Blatant Lie Ever

Supporters of President Obama have been saying since the beginning of the Gulf Coast oil spill that the Administration has been in control and they're getting the job done. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano even said they had an "all hands on deck" approach. Yep, they had the Gulf Coast spill well in hand, regardless of reports to the contrary.

The only "reports to the contrary" have been from right-wingers trying to make this the equivalence of a Bush failure.

What a difference a couple of weeks has made. Now, Napolitano is singing a different tune. Today, she testified before the Senate that the government has "limited capability and expertise" in dealing with situations like the Gulf Coast oil spill.

And how is responding swiftly to a crisis the same as expertise in a crisis? That's not a "different tune" unless you're retarded.

Oh, and I love how you have to keep rewording everything. She said they had "limited capability and expertise in responding to wellhead incidents on the seafloor."

BP themselves, the people you keep praising because they're a corporation, seem to be lacking in capability and expertise, too. It's not exactly a day-to-day occurrence.

But regardless, she went on to say:

"Nonetheless, the federal government has mobilized scientists and industry experts to collaborate with BP to identify and execute the best strategies for sealing the well, and the President has tasked the Department of Energy to participate in providing any possible expertise on that front."

But that doesn't matter, the administration is just "doing nothing" to right-wingers, no matter what they do.

She further said it was "premature" to say whether the Administration's response was adequate.

This is your most blatant lie ever. And that's saying a lot.

Here's the quote, from your own goddamn source :

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said BP's "greed" led to the spill and Lieberman asked Napolitano what she thought of the company's response to the disaster. Napolitano submitted that it would be "premature" to say whether their response was adequate.

Napolitano was clearly talking about BP's response, not the administration's response.

As usual, since you can't find anything real, you have to make shit up. You have zero credibility. Zero. You're a repeated proven liar. There's absolutely no way you can crawl out of this whopper of a lie.

And she even left the door open for praising the private sector, saying, "I would like to, if I might, reserve judgment on the adequacy of the private sector response."

But it's Napolitano saying that, so that means nothing, right?

Of course, that doesn't stop her from suggesting that BP hasn't been honest about their response.

That's because BP was not honest. They called it a "minor spill." Remember? And the letter you're referring to in your link source is referring to BP paying for all the liability, not their physical response to the disaster. So what was the point of that link?

Interestingly enough, I don't see the Administration being all that transparent when it comes to their response to the Gulf Coast oil spill. The "all hands on deck" comment? A lie. The notion that the Administration was engaged on Hour One? A lie.

She didn't lie at all. And that's funny considering you blatantly lied just a few sentences earlier, and that is a proven fact.

Napolitano was absolutely right. The administration was there immediately. There's plenty of transparency to prove who was there and when.

But who is doing the heavy lifting? BP.

It's their responsibility, Mr. Bootstrappy.

Who isn't? The Obama Administration.


Who hasn't been seeking the spotlight and focusing on trying to address the oil spill? BP. Who has been going on TV as often as possible to point fingers? The Obama Administration.

Oh, yes. BP is definitely focusing on the spill and not pointing fingers.

Remember, by your own standards: If even one person isn't there, then they aren't doing anything. BP's CEO wasn't at the spill. Therefore, BP is doing nothing.

Maybe the reason Napolitano is withholding judgment is to give the Administration a chance to catch up to what BP is doing.

It appears that since BP is just making up solution attempts as they go along, BP can't even catch up to what BP is doing. Considering you lied using your own source link, it appears you've got plenty of catching up to do on your own.
