Politico has reported, “Sounding reflective as he heads into a bruising electoral season, President Barack Obama told POLITICO columnist Roger Simon that the Gulf disaster ‘echoes 9/11′ because it will change the nation’s psyche for years to come.” What in the hell is he talking about?! The devastation of 9/11 was due to a terrorist attack on this nation. Perhaps the President got manmade disaster mixed up with enviromental disaster? Since the Obama administration detests the term “terrorism.”
While the oil blowout in the Gulf is devastating, it does not effect the entire nation’s psyche. This comment makes it even more obvious that the President is clueless and out of touch. While we spent the months after 9/11 recovering from the shock of the attack and trying to figure out why terrorists would want to hurt us and even more importantly, living in fear that the next attack could happen at any moment, we will not spend the months following this accident dealing with those same issues. The country will not be going to war over the oil blowout either. And BP is responsible monetarily for this cleanup, while we are on the hook to pay for the War On Terrorism.
Possibly the President is wanting to use 9/11 imagery to tip the American psyche in favor of his Crap & Tax agenda. Obama as much as admitted this by saying, “In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11, I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come.” If he can convince the nation that the situation is dire and that we can never again let this happen, Americans might be willing to support his agenda and the Green Industrial Complex. That is precisely why he is allowing this disaster to expand and get as bad as it has as well. There is no way that our government and the military are this incompetant. It is obvious they are doing this on purpose.
