Day 53

"60 Spillion Gallons Later: Obama to Meet BP Chairman"

Matt Drudge is brilliant with the headlines.

So after 50+ days, Obama is finally going to meet with the Chairman of the Board of PB? One of my favorite conservative blogs,, has a few words about the meeting this morning.

Karl Rove has an excellent op-ed piece in the WSJ: "Obama and the Trouble With Voting Present." Rove says that Obama has seemed "disinterested" in hearing from experts about the spill. "The pattern of being merely present has been apparent almost since the first days of the Obama presidency." Rove ends this way: "The country has had another president both weak and radical at the same time: Jimmy Carter." Oof. And for those of you who are too young to remember the Carter years, those were dark times.

American Thinker has a provocative post this morning--"A Shrink Asks: What's Wrong with Obama"? Psychotherapist "Robin of Berkeley" discusses Obama's odd mannerisms: "Obama is flat when passion is needed; he's aggressive when savvy is required. What's most worrisome is that Obama doesn't even realize that his behavior is inappropriate." The writer/psychotherapist has some interesting theories about what makes Obama tick. Then he ends his assessment by writing that liberals need to wake up and spit out the Kool-Aid and conservatives need to get together and elect as many Republicans as possible: "Because Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today. Why? Because this is a damaged person." Read the whole article. I thought it was frightening when we elected this guy; it's clearly becoming more so as the days and months go by.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) says that Obama is the worst president in United States history. She calls his response to the Gulf oil disaster "infantile."--"It's an infantile response for the president to point blame at BP when the president has given over full authority to BP to deal with and manage the cleanup. If the president wanted to, he could intervene and he clearly hasn't." [Reference Karl Rove's article about the "present" president.] Read the entire interview with Ben Shapiro at Brietbart's Big Government.

So who's in charge of the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history?

Update. It's no coincidence that Obama's job approval numbers are tanking as the Gulf oil disaster drags on seemingly with Obama and his administration cluelessly floundering for a fix. A new Gallup poll (another Drudge headline): "New Low for O, Slips to 44%." Frankly I'm surprised that any poll shows his approval numbers as being that high.
