Before you go to another website, I kindly ask you to consider a few verifiable facts, and I promise you that I will provide the links. Consider this:
The oil spill must have started as early as April 20th this year. Well, it was a known fact already on May 6th, that the U.S. goverment was not accepting foreign help on the dreadful incident. Iran, as implausible as it sounds, offered help, besides others. It is fairly evident that with joining efforts with all the countries willing to help, the task of cleaning would take less time than by the U.S. alone. Firms as the Jan De Nul Group could be of great help if properly required.

The situation is still not getting better, and to top it, almost at the same time, as Obama is going golfing (he’s golfing a lot more than Bush), the BP CEO is going sailing. By now it is clear that both the president and Tony Hayward are as clueless in PR as they can be. The “let them eat cake” is superfluous by now. Whose ass should be kicked, we know that already.

(…) Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal (…)

That was said by none other than presidential hopeful Barack Obama himself on June 3, 2008 (He sure didn’t know those words were going to haunt him forever). Instead of looking for the real causes and solutions, Mr. Hope-and-Change is looking how to involve more politics in such an hour. Remember, a good 100.000 barrels are estimated to be thrown into the ocean every day. I don’t know much about what BP is doing, I concede (that is, not counting the oil filtration machines the Beyond Petroleum farce is buying from Kevin Costner – no joke!), but this no acceptance of help truly enrages me.

There is still a lot of people talking about the brilliance of Barack Obama. Some would say that passing the Health Care Bill grants him a great place in American history alone. They might be right, but for the wrong reasons. Stiff defenders are already giving up. I don’t care how much bulletins are posted on Deepwater Horizon Response, the approach of the U.S. goverment was flawed since the very beggining. I won’t speculate, this blog is not the place for conspiracy theories. But sacrificing the environment, people and the economy in the name of a cap-and-trade legislation, thinking the bigger the spill, the more easy is to pass the law, is downright criminal.

BP used the motto “Beyond Petroleum”, presenting itself as a green company. It never was that way. BP was only trying to please the environmentalism movement. Environmentalism is loaded more with wishful thinking and good intentions than real solutions. In a nutshell, cap-and-trade legislation would bring the entire global economy down. Let’s get realistic. Please don’t sell us more fraud and fear, and we will start to consider what to do next.

Barack Obama sold himself as a postpartisan, compentent, cool and rational president. Until the oil spill I was very reluctantly giving the benefit of the doubt, but giving it anyway. After what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico not anymore, I might add.

Barack Obama must be held accountable for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, not for causing it, but for making it intentionally worse.

Paul Maršić has ranted.
