The White House
Holy Mary. So, what did you think of President Obama's Address to the Nation tonight over the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill? Little wacky, huh? What was the POINT of tonight's talk?
I found this on You Tube and wanted to post it....and....just in case you didn't get to see our Commander in Chief in action tonight you need to take the next NINE minutes to see this for yourself.
The BP Oil Spill is now the biggest man-made disaster in America's history. President Obama even pulled out "the Priest card" tonight in trying to stop this crisis.
Tell me, is this a President in control of the situation or can we do better?
Are his "facts" correct.
Some White House watchers are saying President Obama had lots of his data wrong, and what do you think about his lets "page the Priests" to help fix the leak?
Here is the LAST 3 PLUS minutes of his talk:
"It's a faith in the future that sustains us as a people. It is that same faith that sustains our neighbors in the Gulf right now.
Each year, at the beginning of shrimping season, the region's fishermen take part in a tradition that was brought to America long ago by fishing immigrants from Europe. It's called "The Blessing of the Fleet," and today it's a celebration where clergy from different religions gather to say a prayer for the safety and success of the men and women who will soon head out to sea, some for weeks at a time.
The ceremony goes on in good times and in bad. It took place after Katrina, and it took place a few weeks ago, at the beginning of the most difficult season these fishermen have ever faced.
And still, they came and they prayed.
For as a priest and former fisherman once said of the tradition, "The blessing is not that God has promised to remove all obstacles and dangers. The blessing is that he is with us always," a blessing that's granted "even in the midst of the storm."
The oil spill is not the last crisis America will face. This nation has known hard times before, and we will surely know them again. What sees us through -- what has always seen us through -- is our strength, our resilience, and our unyielding faith that something better awaits us if we summon the courage to reach for it.
Tonight, we pray for that courage, we pray for the people of the Gulf, and we pray that a hand may guide us through the storm towards a brighter day."
Yikes....enough of the chit chat.
Plug the damn hole!
Paging Father Tony....!
