“The seven experts who advised President Obama on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium -- something they actually oppose. The experts, recommended by the National Academy of Engineering, say Interior Secretary Ken Salazar modified their report last month, after they signed it, to include two paragraphs calling for the moratorium on existing drilling and new permits. Salazar's report to Obama said a panel of seven experts "peer reviewed" his recommendations, which included a six-month moratorium on permits for new wells being drilled using floating rigs and an immediate halt to drilling operations. "None of us actually reviewed the memorandum as it is in the report," oil expert Ken Arnold told Fox News. "What was in the report at the time it was reviewed was quite a bit different in its impact to what there is now. So we wanted to distance ourselves from that recommendation." Salazar apologized to those experts Thursday.” [emphasis added]

“Can't anybody here play this game?” — Casey Stengel
Does the Obama Administration understand that it has not been tasked with playing a game, but with performing the executive duties of our federal government? I am not convinced that it does understand.

We are in the midst of a continuous stream of crises, and the routine response from this bunch of criminals and clowns is to deflect, deny, dissemble, and denigrate anything and everything that is inconvenient to their vision of reality. Meanwhile, the monstrous international dangers lurking in the wings are sizing up the pathetic situation in the White House Situation Room and drooling in anticipation of a particularly generous gift-giving season.
