Over 2,000 Skimmers Available In US That Obama Refuses To Use

by Brittany Pounders on June 22, 2010

If one was a cynic than you would believe that the complete inaction on the part of this adminstration was purposeful and used in an effort to perhaps ram through their agenda.  A crisis was created, its almost as if it is deliberately not being fixed, clear options on the table are not being used and one can only wonder why!

Senator Lemieux spoke with President Obama and the exchange between the two over the 2,000 skimmers in the US currently going unused to clean up this massive oil spill will blow your mind!

Senator Lemieux says, “I think it is outrageous that we only have 20 skimmers off the coast of Florida.  There are 2000 skimmers in the United States and we haven’t even asked as a federal government for those skimmers to come into the gulf….the federal government who wants to take over every other aspect of our life can’t get this one thing right…”

President Obama’s response about the skimmers not being used was, “We can’t take these skimmers from other places in the country because they might have an oil spill!”   What?!?

The exchange continues…

Another case of the children being in charge!
