Obama Compounding the Disaster

More. As others have pointed out, we don't ground all planes after a crash.

Obama's Bizarre 9/11 Analogy - John Podhoretz, New York Post

Will Obama Go Nuclear on BP Tonight? Larry Kudlow:
The Gulf area supplies nearly 30 percent of U.S. oil, and suspension of drilling seems already to be putting upward pressure on oil prices. Oil is up $2 today to $77 — nearly $10 higher than its low in recent months. Retail gas prices are creeping up, too, which could set the stage for a somewhat slower economic-recovery rate. So will rising unemployment in the Gulf region, along with lost tourist dollars. [snip]

Meanwhile, the president is expected to make a clarion call tonight for cap-and-trade — a huge energy tax on the economy that could sink recovery hopes.
Obama stuck on stupid. Yeah, that phrase was coined after Katrina. Which was a natural disaster. The president then was initially blocked from acting by an incompetent mayor and governor. This was an accident based on human error.

And the president is making it all worse. He hasn't protected our coasts, nor given the governors leave to. He hasn't marshaled all resources.

...It's heartbreaking. My friend Pat blogs here: And So it Goes in Shreveport
