Which one is it, you Republican fucks? This was the thinking on Tuesday:
U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise (R-Metairie) said the full Louisiana Congressional Delegation is opposed to Obama’s moratorium and the President isn’t doing enough in the Gulf.
“There is a role that the President is supposed to play,” Scalise said, “I still don’t see the President doing enough.”
And here's the opposite Republican thinking today:
A top Republican lawmaker apologized to BP on Thursday for what he said was a "shakedown" by the government of the oil company in forcing it to create a $20 billion fund to pay out damages resulting from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
If Obama offered to make the federal government pay for all the damages, these people would be crowing about Obama's wasteful spending. But if BP has to pay for damages, then they're screaming about Obama's shakedown of private business. He can somehow, according to their logic, be doing too much and not enough at the same time. They won't be happy until Obama shoves his finger in the hole to block the spill, the same way Republicans are shoving their fingers in their ears to block out reason.
