Barack Obama is not a manager – he is not an executive – he is not a leader – he has no experience in cutting through the red tape to get things done. Some of us warned everyone else about these deficiencies during the 2008 presidential campaign but America was more interested in ‘hope and change’.
53 Days Later Obama Administration Decides to Accept Dutch Offer to Help With Spill

Remember: The Gulf Oil Spill Is Like 9-11
Three days after the Gulf oil rig explosion, the Netherlands offered to send in oil skimmers to pump oil off of the surface of the ocean. The Obama Administration turned them down because they were not 100% efficient and small amounts of oil would be pumped back into the Gulf with the excess water. EPA regulations do not allow for residue water to contain any oil. So rather than use equipment that was not 100% efficient the Obama Administration chose to let all of the oil run into the Gulf.
This is not just bad policy, it is criminal.
Since the Obama Administration turned down assistance from The Netherlands at least 125 miles of Louisiana coastline has been ruined by the BP oil spill. Tar blobs began washing up on Florida’s white sand beaches near Pensacola days ago. And, crude oil has also been reported along barrier islands in Alabama and Mississippi.

Now, some 59 days later, Obama has apparently reconsidered the offer from the Dutch. It’s a little late, President Obama!
What about these creatures, Mr. Obama?
