Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleDumbo just isn’t all into the spill, RCP: [1]

A review of the president’s schedule since the rig sank finds that while the oil spill has been a regular part of the agenda, other priorities — and some extended periods of R&R — competed for time. April 22, the day the rig sank and two days after the first explosion, is indicative of this pattern. That morning, Obama traveled to New York City to deliver remarks on Wall Street reform. En route, press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked whether Obama had spoken with officials in the region about the rig explosion, responding, “I don’t believe so.” After returning to the White House, Obama held a reception to honor Earth Day and met with the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

Dumbo’s priorities, Mary Katherine Ham, Weekly Standard [2]:

So, the party out of power was somewhere between two and four times more important than the economy-threatening, ecosystem-strangling, gigantic oil spill, which is Obama’s No. 1 priority. (There’s a joke in there somewhere for a liberal blogger about understanding the president’s inability to differentiate between two overpowering, slimy forces of greed. Bum-dump-ching! Fun with partisan stereotypes.)

Anybody left who hasn’t been offered a payoff job by the Obama White House, please put out your hand Los Angeles Times [3].

Will somebody offer Gloria Borger a clue, from CNN [4]:

All of which leads to President Obama [5]. He was elected because he is cool, calm and analytical. That’s what we wanted to see after George W. Bush, so we made him president. But now the disaster in the Gulf has made many of us want to see someone else — with plenty of anger, emotion and bravado. We want him to yell at BP. We want him to loudly tell us he’s whipping the cleanup effort into shape.

We can’t tell BP ourselves, so we want him to do it for us.

The President we elected and the President we got was a thug from Chicago.   Dim Won, b/k/a Barack Obama neither cool, calm nor analytical.    Rather then being calm,  Obama is troubled by his temper.    Rather than stopping the oil leak in the Gulf, the Obama administration gloats about holding a boot to BP’s throat.   Rather than being analytical, Obama still speaks of Obama Care bending the cost curve down, when in fact it bending the curve up.   Rather thnn admitting that the theory anthropogenic global warming based on fraud,  Obama still wants to impose  Cap and Tax.
