The White House appears resigned to living with the BP oil spill for some time to come. But that’s not surprising—since President Obama and his team were briefed from the outset that the blowout at the Deepwater Horizons rig was epic in scope—and would not be fixable for a long, long time.Strangely, you will no longer find paragraphs one and three of the above passage where it originally appeared Friday evening. Having intimately known BO for 48 days now (ewww ... that came out wrong), I can confidentially surmise that BO added making Richard Wolfe edit his post this weekend to the Regime's many diversions.
Carol Browner, director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy, told Obama in late April that the blowout would likely lead to an unprecedented environmental disaster, a senior White House aide told The Daily Beast. Browner warned that capping a well at such depths had never been done before, and that they ought to expect an oil spill that would continue until a relief well was drilled in August, the aide said. (Browner’s office did not immediately reply to a request for comment).
That bleak prognosis, delivered so early on, has infused Obama’s senior team with a sense of fatalism about the spill from the start. Little that has happened since has changed their mindset. Now six weeks later, the president’s top advisers expect the oil spill – and the negative stories – to continue through August.
And the diversions are making me angry.
Here I work, tirelessly, day in, day out, for free, without sleep, to ruin his presidency and all he can do is decide to “live with me.”
He spends His idle time dithering away on vacations and date nights and stress relief on the golf course. When He does work, He blasts Wall Street and Arizona and makes racist political videos.
Meanwhile, the broken condom on my pipe captures only a fraction of the oil I'm gushing, and the Regime is suddenly telling everyone this morning that I will be the longest orgasm in history, lasting into the fall.
Which makes me think that all of BO's recent pomp and circumstance, about it being His job to fix me, about being angry with BP, is more TOTUS blather for the chattering class. What I'm really starting to understand is that He does want to be remembered as a one-term president.
But not as a "very good" one.
No, BO will be remembered for a title that "we are the ones we've been waiting for" never dreamed of receiving but apparently will live with, too, despite all the damage control and rhetoric and photo ops of BO rolling up His sleeves and picking pieces of His brain off the beach.
For it is becoming crystal clear now that history will remember my BO simply as the Disaster in Chief.
