GIVE em’ Hell, Hillary!

If hindsight is 20/20, then Hillary Clinton needs to be President!

Watch the video and see why…

Why hasn’t Obama given BP a deadline for capping the oil well before we, (the country,) step in with US resources? Our infamous US See-bees are experts at setting underwater demolition as well as the Navy Seals, I’m sure they can blow this well up as one would suspect and seal this well now and forever. The next question is: then why haven’t they done this?

Why hasn’t the President set a drop dead date for BP to handle what it so far, has been unable to handle? If they consider themselves to be the experts in their field but have never dealt with an insurmountable problem such as this runaway spill? Then why do we continue to sit around taking the wait and see approach advised by the “OIL” company running the show?

Meanwhile, marine animals, bird life, fragile ecosystems have to die; because why? BP needs time, months, to drill a relief beside the runnaway well?

“President Barack Obama might also hear some of that anger. He will return to the Louisiana coast Friday to assess the latest efforts, his third trip to the region since the disaster unfolded and his second in a week.

He told CNN’s Larry King that he, too, was frustrated and used his strongest language in assailing BP.

“I am furious at this entire situation because this is an example where somebody didn’t think through the consequences of their actions,” Obama said. “This is imperiling an entire way of life and an entire region for potentially years.”

Obama tells us nothing what we don’t already know… Get off your rear-end and give BP an ultimatum- IT’S NOW or NEVER!. Remember, we do not know if WE with all the military resources at our disposal can get this well capped off and under control.


Bill Clinton talks climate change and health care at CNE

The sun shines for Bill Clinton.

Bill in TorontoOr at least it did this afternoon, when the skies cleared in time for the former U.S. president to address an audience of almost 12,000 at BMO Field at the Canadian National Exhibition.

Clinton, who had just flown to Toronto from the Boston funeral of Edward Kennedy, opened his remarks with words of remembrance of the late senator.

“I knew him for more than 30 years,” said Clinton. “We worked together, sometimes we fought… but throughout it all I cherished my relationship with him because he proved that public service was an honourable way to live, and he gave his entire life to trying to make our country and the world a better place.”

The half-hour speech, tailored to a Canadian audience and bookended by standing ovations, ranged in terms of subject matter from climate change to the health care debate south of the border. Addressing the latter, Clinton did his level-headed best to explain the fervour at town halls throughout the U.S.

“If you look at America, you must wonder what in the world are my friends to the south thinking? Why don’t they just pass some bill? How could it be worse?”


“A lot of you have American friends; you can help us with this,” he continued. “The money’s going somewhere, and the somewhere doesn’t want to give it up… You have to understand there’s a lot of economic incentive to keep things misunderstood and (people) full of fear.”

Clinton switched gears from austere to earnest and back again numerous times throughout the speech. At one point, he spent two minutes explaining his love for fairs, particularly given their place in the political circuit in Arkansas, the state he governed before becoming president.
