I don't make this stuff up.

If you are smarter than a fifth grader, you know that there are 5 oceans in the world: The Pacific; the Atlantic; the Indian; the Southern and the Arctic.

For many years only (4) four oceans were officially recognized, and then in the spring of 2000, the International Hydrographic Organization established the Southern Ocean.

This giant of an intellectual, Janet Napolitano, thinks there are more than that. She thinks the Gulf of Mexico is an ocean. You can hear her call it that, not once, but twice in the videos on this page. In the one above it's at :10 seconds and :35 seconds.

One slip could be excusable, but two, back-to-back indicate that she thinks she is using the right nomenclature.

For a clearer audio, try this LINK.

She goes on to say that the federal government is going to "...do all it can" to see that BP is held responsible for the oil spill (in the Gulf of Mexico, not [as far as we know] in any ocean). The feds will force BP to clean up this "ocean."

Then Salazar gets into the act with a series of vagaries that leave one scratching one's head, asking, "What does that mean?"

So it goes with President BO's team of the most sophomoric, educated idiots ever assembled.

And they are our leaders.

As John Maxwell once pinned: "If you think you are a leader, look behind you. If nobody's there, you're not a leader...you're just out for a stroll."

Oh, Joe, and THESE are the people 'fixing things for us'? HELP!
I can't watch the video...it's not good for me first thing in the morning :-)

Leticia said...

Joe and Z, that's enough to keep people up at night.

Good thing most of us trust a higher power to "take care of us." I sure is heck don't trust anyone in Washington.

At no point has BP refused to do their part. There is no reason for these yahoos to drag BP through the mud. This is only political posturing and grandstanding.

I do love the leader quote though.

I say we drop Napolitano into the Gulf and see if the rumors about her being a sponge are true. If she truly loved America, she’d volunteer for this assignment.

Semper Fi

Joe, it is the conspiracy of incompetence starting with BO.

Janelle said...

Perhaps when BP is finished doing whatever can be done about the spill, they should rethink their political donation strategy.

Joe said...

Z: Incredible, isn't it?

Leticia: You are so right. And we must keep our focus on Him.

ablur: BP is being hog-tied by a control hungry president who knows not what he is doing.

Mustang: Hot air floats.

Ginsu: Incompetence is putting it mildly.

Janelle: Yeah. President BO knows how to bite the hand that feeds him.
