Obama picked a great time to open up more off-shore drilling!
42,000 gallons of oil spilling into the ocean every day, right off the coast of Lousiana, and the Coast Guard doesn't consider it a 'very serious spill'? Give me a break. It's going to take more than a month to seal the well. FORTY TWO THOUSAND GALLONS A DAY. FOR A MONTH.
Here's what it looks like right now:
President Obama mentioned opening up more U.S. areas for off-shore drilling during his campaign, but I thought it was more of a ploy to pick up any right-leaning undecideds. Now it looks like a play for votes in this fall's elections, especially since his approval rating has dropped dramatically after the fight for his health care bill.
After these recent events, I hope this rating drops dramatically too. However, the media is doing plenty to hide the story.
Let's play a game! It's called 'Find the Oil Spill Coverage in the 'Liberal' Media!'
I get that the Goldman Sachs executive hearing in the Senate is important, but this oil spill is just a few days away from hitting our shore. Then let's see if the media stops playing 'Where's Waldo' with it.
