Critics "don't know the facts"

Just a quick blog post on President Obama's press conference today. As Politico headlines he actually said:

“Those who think that we were either slow in our responses or lacked urgency don’t know the facts. This has been our highest priority since this crisis occurred,” Obama said during a rare news conference in the White House East Room. “We understood from day one the potential enormity of this crisis and acted accordingly.”

I am frustrated too. But, lets all face it. The federal government has zero capacity to actually stop the leak. The oil companies do.

What our government does have is the capacity to prepare for the oil hitting land. And only a very little bit has started to arrive on 3 barrier islands in Louisiana. So, while I am frustrated just like everyone, what else the heck can our government do? The leak is 100 miles off shore and about a mile under water.

Hardly just one island

Recently I happen to fumble across your pathetic blog. After carefully reviewing this blog Blue it has come to my attention that you are a pathetic, hopeless and a coward. Not only do you copy other people's writings, but you so stupidly attack people and hide behind this lame blog. Are you still upset becuase you cannot become a politician, is your criminal background getting in the way. Or is it that you are such a coward that you cannot tell people in their face what you think.
