HotAirPundit sums up the continuing joke that is the “from day one” Obama administration’s response to the oil spill:
Funny how V.P. Biden has plenty of time to fly to Wisconsin for a fundraiser for Russ Feingold, go to the World Cup and watch soccer, come back and play golf with Obama, but he can’t seem to find the time to listen to these Parish Presidents who are facing an absolute crisis in Louisiana.
Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said he and other parish presidents waited three hours to meet with Biden — who “walked in, took a picture, and was on his way“:
“I thought we were gonna sit down and have a meeting… I wanted to show him my 5 point plan why the berms were important, why we have to have a long term plan… I said listen, tell the President it’s not too late, but if we don’t make some serious changes and a sense of urgency does not take hold here we will lose this war and it will be his fault.”
Imagine how much faster Biden would have blown him off if Nungesser would have told him to “lower our taxes”!
Here’s Nungesser venting his frustrations to Anderson Cooper while a featherless oil-soaked pelican looks on — oh wait, that’s James Carville — nevermind:
