This is what is running our Country, and just think of all those that ELECTED this bunch of misfits that are not qualified to do their jobs, but yet you are paying their wages.

There was the delayed response. There was the worrying about the image. There was the lack of resources. No, I’m not talking about Hurricane Katrina, but the Obama Administration’s handling of the British Petroleum oil spill.
But it gets better. It is not only like Bush’s Katrina, but like Halliburton too.
Turns out Barack Obama has gotten more money from British Petroleum than any other American politician. Not just that, but BP spent $15.9 million lobbying the Democrats and Obama last year.
The result of all that money to Obama? The Obama Administration exempted British Petroleum from an environmental drilling study.
Oh, and while the oil was spreading, the Interior Department Chief of Staff was white-water rafting on the Grand Canyon as part of a “work-focused” trip.
That’s like Obama’s Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, who stayed on a ski vacation post-Christmas instead of returning to deal with the panty-bomber.
These guys remain amateurs. They run a good campaign, but they can’t govern to save our lives.
