A little over a year ago I posted In2 Right Wing Inanity a post about how the Right wastes opportunities and credibility on false attacks on Obama & Co. Well a year on and I have to say it is still going on. I also have to say that after a year of exposure to lefties I have a compounding malady.
The breaking point that has lead to this new post is the whole BP,Rep. Barton,Obama thing. The 20 billion dollar fund that BP will spend up to two years building is being played as a slush fund,an un-Constitutional act and an aberration to democracy by the Right.
Well the fund was a negotiated settlement. Contrary to many on the right and left I am of the opinion that BP has no intent to offer any more money-evah! I firmly believe that if the 20bn is exhausted and the government goes back to the till you will see a litigation action that will make the Exxon Valdez case look like a parking ticket appearance.
I’ve reviewed the Barton apology as it is called and find the left dishonest on this issue. The prepared statement angle is a red herring. I’m sure it was prepared,but I am equally sure he prepared it. I have the same level of confidence in the fact that Bartons statement spoke to looking into legitimate legal actions by the AG and that BP MUST answer questions. Getting hung up on the apology is silly and petty.
I wish we could approach the subject that we obviously do not have enough sea borne cleaning vessels. The offers from foreign countries have been somewhat dishonestly clouded in Jones Act talk. Truth be told as more oil washes ashore every day we are failing to take up the best offers. The State Dept. states costs are being evaluated as offers pour in. I’m of the school that cost isn’t an object here. Let’s get the right tools for the job now! It would’ve been nice to get them two months ago too but that ship has sailed.
As for Obama bullying BP into coughing up 20 billion dollars. Again…..N-E-G-O-T-I-A-T-I-O-N. BP could’ve clearly taken a chance in courts alone including the souring court of opinion.The actions of the POTUS were in my opinion not totally Presidential. I fail to see where it was unconstitutional.
Left Wing Insanity.
So the above clearly illustrates (to me) how predominantly the right has run with some bad info to all the wrong places. Well the left is no better. The left has secured a superior weapon though and it should be exposed. The left collectively celebrates the concept of the “right wing sound machine” and other such names yet relish using anything from the right to be placed into the echo chamber.
The echo chamber is a leftist production. It takes inane comments and actions as well as other stuff including points out of context and outright lies,insert them into the chamber and turn it on high.It seals out reason,fullness and where needed truth
Soon that message appears everywhere. The right gets blamed.Repeat
Aim Right and Aim True is my advice.
