Obama Stoops To Bully

with 17 comments

It's A Tough Job

I suppose it was bound to happen eventually but I am deeply, deeply disappointed in President Obama’s treatment of Tony Hayward.  It’s not worthy of him.

As I’ve written previously, Tony Hayward undoubtedly made some mistakes in his earlier handling of the oil spill crisis but,  apart from two or three minor gaffes (which have no substantive effect on the real issues at all), I’d like to know who could have done any better and how?

As Barack’s biggest fan I’m not going to give up on him.  I’m just sad to see him playing Big Bully Yankee.  It’s undignified, unnecessary and he should reflect on how often when America exercises its power without proper thought it ends up hurting its own.  No country on earth has sustained more friendly fire, blue-on-blue casualties.  I thought the era of dumb and dumber was behind us.

Tony Hayward is a brave man probably doing the most difficult job anyone in the oil industry has ever been faced with.  Obama should be backing him up, not undermining him.  BP shareholders should be asking themselves who they could replace him with.  There is no one with his experience.

The depths of venality plumbed by Stephen Byers, Geoff Hoon, Patricia Hewitt, John Butterfill, Margaret Moran and Baroness Morgan are exceeded only by their crass stupidity at getting caught.

Looking For Business Sweetie?

I thought that Alan Duncan had taken the biscuit for being dumb and dumber when he was caught on concealed camera on the Houses Of Parliament terrace last year.  It is almost beyond belief how these people can be so stupid and so gullible, blinded by their own greed and avarice.

Byers, Hewitt and Hoon may well have brought the Labour Party into disrepute but all these fools have brought our entire political system into disrepute – again!
