Not Invented Here

Good grief!  Now it's coming to light that the Obama administration rejected Dutch offers of assistance on the BP oil disaster.  Turns out the Dutch offered us oil skimming booms that can process 5 million gallons of water a day, cleaning the oil out.  Those wise solons of oil on Team Obama's response? "No thanks." Now, 50 some odd days later, we are outfitting four American ships with four of these critters...on a daily basis they will be able to remove 20,000 tons of oil and sludge.  And we could have had these operating...when??



All of this is indicative of having a man in office that is not, nor has ever been, a leader.  Take heed, America, this is what you get when you have someone whose political/managerial record was to vote "present."

Why is it that a man who has spent his entire Presidential tenure letting the world know that America is no longer #1, has to pick this moment to try and do it alone?

Carter must really be liking Obama right about now...
