AP writer dives into Gulf


Some 40 miles out into the Gulf Of Mexico, I jump off the boat into the thickest patch of red oil Iíve ever seen. 
I open my eyes and realize my mask is already smeared. I canít see anything and weíre just five seconds into the dive.

Dropping beneath the surface the only thing I see is oil. To the left, right, up and down ó it sits on top of the water 
in giant pools, and hangs suspended 15 feet beneath the surface in softball sized blobs. There is nothing alive under 
the slick, although I see a dead jellyfish and handful of small bait fish. 

I make my way to the back of the boat unaware of just how covered I am.  I look a little like one of those poor pelicans. 
The oil is so thick and sticky, almost like a cake batter. It does not wipe off. You have to scrape it off, in layers until you 
finally get close to the skin. Then you pour on some Dawn dishwashing soap and scrub. I think to myself: No fish, no bird, 
no turtle would ever be able to clean this off of themselves. If any animal, any were to end up in this same puddle there is 
almost no way they could escape. 

Yet our president remains a fan of off-shore drilling? 

I could've sworn a Democrat won last time - how'd we end up with a Republican president?

I read - this is unconfirmed - that Obama agreed to break his promise to us on off-shore drilling
to get the Rethugs to go along with his environmental plans, whatever those are.

If that's true, I'm going to say it for the first time: Obama's an idiot.

Once again, Obama is Charlie Brown and Boner and The Bitch are Lucy,
pulling the football back just as he's about to kick it.

The ONLY way you make a deal with those the sons of bitches is like a drug deal.
When Boner and The Bitch sign binding papers that Obama's Green Plan is a go,
THEN Obama comes out for off-shore drilling, but it looks like that didn't happen.

It looks like Obama gave them his money and they walked into a deserted house 
with it and then ran out the back door with his money while naive Barry waits 
out front for his drugs which aren't coming.

How could someone from the streets, someone who admits 
to doing a little cocaine, be so childishly naive?
