OK, Now the Question is- Incompetence or Deliberate?


The Video below only shows part of the problem with the delays in the Gulf Cleanup.

It's Way Worse than just dicking around and ignorance.

Of course, Teleprompter Jesus thinks delays in containing the oil are ok if it ensures that the Unions are getting their cut of the action.

"The Americans, overwhelmed by the catastrophic consequences of the BP spill, finally relented and took the Dutch up on their offer -- but only partly. Because the U.S. didn't want Dutch ships working the Gulf, the U.S. airlifted the Dutch equipment to the Gulf and then retrofitted it to U.S. vessels. And rather than have experienced Dutch crews immediately operate the oil-skimming equipment, to appease labour unions the U.S. postponed the clean-up operation to allow U.S. crews to be trained."

Same thing with the berms that Governor Jindal was asking for within the first 10 days.

"A catastrophe that could have been averted is now playing out. With oil increasingly reaching the Gulf coast, the emergency construction of sand berns to minimize the damage is imperative. Again, the U.S. government priority is on U.S. jobs, with the Dutch asked to train American workers rather than to build the berms."

Read the entire article. The absurd EPA rules, rules which could be temporarily rescinded during this emergency, are to blame, too.

I guess it's more important to keep some union guys working than to try to keep the coast from being destroyed.
That's what you get when you have a bunch of Community Organizers running things.

A pox on all of these fuck ups.

Hat tip again to Ace
