Napolitano on Obama Response to Oil Nightmare: “System Worked”

By John W. Lillpop

As beaches in the Gulf States are being converted to repositories for raw, unrefined petroleum, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is calling for calm while defending the lethargic dithering of Barack Obama.

As she did after the attempted terrorist attack over Detroit on Christmas Day, Napolitano suggested that the “system worked” when in fact the entire world knows that President Obama has chalked up another miserable failure of epic proportions.

As reported in part at reference 1:

“This was a situation that was treated as a possible catastrophic failure from day one,” Janet Napolitano, homeland security secretary, said on NBC. “We had independent projections being done at the beginning and realise this incident evolved over time.”

“The administration has faced criticism that a “controlled burn” of the spill did not begin until four days after a new leak was discovered. Ms Napolitano, who along with other US officials took to the airwaves on Sunday to discuss the leak, said early efforts to contain the spill had been impeded by weather conditions.

“Mother Nature has not exactly been friendly,” she said on ABC News.”


Has big, bad Mother Nature unfairly picked on our inexperienced president and the dim wits in his cabinet? Shame on mean old Mum Nature!

Perhaps the old gal is a racist Republican looking to produce a “Waterloo” for our incompetent chief?

Still, Mother Nature did deal America a rotten hand when she made it possible for Napolitano to secure a responsible position with government.

By the way, where the hell is FEMA?
