The Obamessiah addresses the nation tonight about the Gulf oil spill. Conservative columnist Mona Charen writes a beauty:
“My fellow Americans: Events of the past 55 days have taught me some valuable lessons about leadership and I'd like to share those with you tonight.
When the Deepwater Horizons rig blew up and spawned a terrible oil spill on April 22, my administration's response was conditioned by decades of liberal and leftist thinking about business and government. My background in academia and community activism had never exposed me to the basics of making business decisions or to the fundamentals of a market economy. To the contrary, my friends on the left and I tended to see businessmen, doctors, bankers -- pretty much anyone who made a profit -- as selfish creeps. ‘There comes a point when you've made enough money’ I scolded, when urging passage of a financial reform bill.
So when the oil spill became a national story, our instinct was to bash the company.”
And my favorite line:
“Most of all, we must, as grown-ups, recognize that sometimes terrible things happen and there is no one to blame.”
No matter what he tosses at us, most of America ain't buyin' it.
I just hope Obama doesn’t talk too long. He’s pre-empting Jimmy Kimmel’s Game Night NBA pre-game show.
