If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to live under a President Chavez, you’re getting a good first hand look.
As most of us already knew, the Obama administration has nothing but disdain for the average American bitter clinger. As if the freedom-robbing healthcare bill wasn’t enough, the thug-in-chief is now suing Arizona and halting the collection of oil in the gulf.
I’m surprised that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was “surprised” to learn that the Feds were coming after Arizona for attempting to enforce Federal law already on the books. From her own press release…
Governor Brewer said, â€œI just visited with the President in the Oval Office about our differences over immigration policy, and the one firm understanding we had was that within two weeks he would provide details of his commitment to deploy National Guard troops to the border. While I am grateful that
communications have taken place about a possible visit by Administration staff before the end of the month, there is not yet a confirmed date. More importantly, no information about additional troop and border security enhancements has been provided by the Obama Administration to the citizens of Arizona.â€
Her first mistake was meeting with the liar-in-chief. Her second mistake was believing a word he said. At least she’s fighting back, to some degree.
LA Governor Bobby Jindal is fighting back as well, but it may be too late.
So why stop now?
“The Coast Guard came and shut them down,” Jindal said. “You got men on the barges in the oil, and they have been told by the Coast Guard, ‘Cease and desist. Stop sucking up that oil.'”
A Coast Guard representative told ABC News today that it shares the same goal as the governor.
“We are all in this together. The enemy is the oil,” said Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Dan Lauer.
But the Coast Guard ordered the stoppage because of reasons that Jindal found frustrating. The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges.
The governor said he didn’t have the authority to overrule the Coast Guard’s decision, though he said he tried to reach the White House to raise his concerns.
“They promised us they were going to get it done as quickly as possible,” he said. But “every time you talk to someone different at the Coast Guard, you get a different answer.”
When you here President Zero and the rest of the Federal bureaucrats say that they’re doing everything they can, just know that they’re doing everything they can to destroy the country.
Heckuva job, Brownie.
