Dear Commander-in-Chief: Mayday, Mayday, Mayday! It is day 81. The oil invasion is spreading. We will soon be surrounded by deadly water on two sides! Our food supplies are tainted. Our morale is low. Our information unreliable. Our front lines are falling to illness and fatigue. We are undermanned. The weather is working against us. Please engage! The oil spill is winning!! Our survival depends on you!!! Sincerely, The American People
Dear American People:
Everything possible is being done.
The President receives daily briefings. Appropriate agencies have been notified. Committees have been appointed. Point people are on the ground. Funds have been appropriated. BP will be held accountable.
The President could not be more fully engaged. Today he is campaigning against the Republicans. Tomorrow he is campaigning for Democrats. Next week he will travel to the coast to shake hands, have a photo op and give you a lecture on what you are going through.
Until then…Hope. Change. Yes We Did.
The Office of the President’s Staff
According to simulation models at the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), the brown areas are where the oil will be on April 15, 2011. (h/t Science Daily)
