LA Parish Pres. Billy Nungesser on Biden Visit: "I Was Disappointed, We Waited 3 Hours and I Got 30 Seconds With Him"

"We waited with the other Parish Presidents for over 3 hours, he [Biden] walked in, took a picture and was on his way, I got 30 seconds with him"

Biden "walked in, took a picture and was on his way"

Nungesser: "I thought we were gonna sit down and have a meeting... I wanted to show him my 5 point plan why the berms were important, why we have to have a long term plan... I said listen, tell the President it's not too late, but if we don't make some serious changes and a sense of urgency does not take hold here we will lose ths war and it will be his fault"

V.P. Biden has plenty of time to fly to Wisconsin for a fundraiser for Russ Feingold, go to the World Cup and watch soccer, come back and play golf with Obama, but he can't seem to find the time to listen to these Parish Presidents who are facing an absolute crisis in Louisiana..



WASHINGTON (AP) -- The United States is accepting help from 12 countries and international organizations in dealing with the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico The State Department said in a statement Tuesday that the U.S. is working out the particulars of the help that's been accepted.

The identities of all 12 countries and international organizations were not immediately announced. One country was cited in the State Department statement -- Japan, which is providing two high-speed skimmers and fire containment boom.

More than 30 countries and international organizations have offered to help with the spill. The State Department hasn't indicated why some offers have been accepted and others have not.


I saw this from Bobby Jindal at Facebook a friend had posted at their page.


Wild Thing's comment........

All so Biden could give the news a photo to print and say he’d been there

Billy Nungesser on Day 71 (from the video): “And there is no sense of urgency to get it to work. If we brought all that kind of equipment [skimmers] and put it out there and this oil is light and we quit spraying dispersant and surround it with all these fleets from all over world we’d be kicking butt as the President says, out there before it comes ashore underneath the surface.”

Basically confirming that if the skimmers, in particular the Dutch skimmers, were deployed early, none of the oil would have reached the shore.

It's amazing, isn't it? These Parish Presidents and the folks who live there know what needs to be done to protect the coastline while Obama and his "experts" don't have a freaking clue.

I heard 10 or so Oil Rigs are already sold and will be moved to a country who wants the oil. Even Brazil.

I think obama knows exactly what he's doing in this, he wants to shut down the country and bankrupt us in order to affect a communist form or government. This oil leak just seems all to convenient. By doing nothing and letting these rigs leave the area just accelerates obama's agenda and that is the total collapse of the country.

Nobody is that stupid, that would spend the country into such debt for no apparent reason and try to convince the world he is saving the economy single handedly. Even Socialist Europe is surprised at what the U.S. is doing and won't go along with it. Almost all of Europe has gone to a conservative form of government because the Socialist policies are NOT working. They never have. This bunch in washington are convinced that Socialism/Communism hasn't been done the Right Way and they are here to show the world that they are right and also at the expense of the American people.

Had they talked to Biden, their disappointment would not have been any less. Mark, Rush said it well. Communism doesn't work because the communist leaders are capitalist. They get theirs and live well.

Interesting how Obama shut down drilling and countries like Brazil are going ahead full steam with drilling. Also interesting how Obama is giving Brazil 2-billion dollars for their oil exploration. What's more interesting is that George Soros invested heavily into Brazil's oil exploration about the same time Obama said he would give them 2 billion.

Just one more example of our government at work.
In any situation there three options and ONLY three through which the situation can be successfully concluded:
Get the hell out of the way

Our government is introducing a fourth option - which is guaranteed to lead to failure,at least in our view.
