Tonight it appears that President Obama will change the narrative - British Petroleum crashed hijacked planes into the the Event Horizon Oil Rig at the orders of former President George W. Bush and he inherited the greatest ecological disaster and its not his fault. Then he will announce a really stupid order that will boost American Taxes and MSNBC will warn us that grannies of the Tea Party are dangerous.
Cry Wolf from Our Amateur Hour White House.
President Obama removed the bust of Winston Churchill in one of his first and only acts as President.
Imagine if President Obama were Prime Minister in 1940 Britain - hell, why not, the President imagines that his dandified mincing around the Gulf oil spill parallels 9/11. As if, . . .
Picture this, roughly seventy years prior to the month of Obama's full time inaction on Event Horizon, Prime Minister Winston Obama acts in much of the same manner - this time 336,000 British troops are stranded on the beach at Dunkirk.
Winston Churchill rallied everything that could float and shoved them all across the English Channel and what remained of the British Army was saved and went on to defeat Hitler.
After the British deliverance at Dunkirk, Churchill, in the House of Commons, rallied Britain with his most memorable speech.
"We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender," he declared.
Then, as the House of Commons thundered in an uproar at his stirring rhetoric, Churchill muttered in a whispered aside to a colleague, "And we’ll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles because that’s bloody well all we’ve got!"
Now, let's shift our historical narrative with our imaginations - No Hitler like BP and GOP -
Hushed Sissified BBC voice:

“Some of you may have noticed that we have been building this foundation without much help from our friends in the other party. From our efforts to rescue the economy to health insurance reform to financial reform, most have sat on the sidelines and shouted from the bleachers. They said no to tax cuts for small businesses; no to tax credits for college tuition; no to investments in clean energy. They said no to protecting patients from insurance companies and consumers from big banks, make no mistake, I have been on this from day one, I talked to Lord Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney, not because this is some college seminar, but because someone could use the thorough and sound thumping , What? What? Haw? Haw . . This is Neville Chamberlain's Legacy!!!! The French won;t fight! I am annoucing an Energy policy that will make the Third Reich energy dependent - Windmills! I am on it!"
