400 Temps Swarm Beach for Obama Oil Spill Photo Op, Then Disappear


Even more pathetic? Knowing that the White House will cite every one of these temps as jobs created in their next round of fantasy employment statistics.

Hey Yankee. Its been awhile. Nice start on the article. Lets go with 400 temp workers bussed in for a photo op. Then go to the People bussed in for healthcare and given white lab coats. Then go back to Clinton's impeachment hearings where they bussed in 100 lawyers, put graduation gowns on them and called them "legal scholars". I think the Libs are still wagging the dog, so to speak. Clinton seems to be involved in the Sestak matter. Do you think he could be using his old Hollywood pals for Obama? O is messing up so bad, Hillary will never get a chance.

Photo ops are what is left after lunch has been eatin. Liberalis don't get that people are immune to photo ops.

If they really wanted to impress people they would pay for 10,000 temps to show up on the beach, put paper towels in thier hands, and make them bend over to sop up the oil, tee he.

Damn I 'shore' hope some of them got cute butts.
Sorry, just dreamin.

I was bothered by President Obama lookin all happy at the lack of oil on the beach, I had hoped he would visit the marsh the wetland but he took the easy tour. He does not care, oh and i also read that the workers were promised $16 per hour but were paid much less and not provided with water (really hot day) or restrooms. I guess they should have joined a union on those buses.

I don't get the tough talk from Obama and the left. BP did not intentionally sink there well. They may be faulted over the blow out preventer but at 5000 feet there are not guarantees on anything. Instead of running around like a fool trying to put people in jail or sue them or take over their company (which is already nationalized by the Brits), why not offer to help? I keep thinking that if my neighbor's house was burning would it be appropriate for me to be in his yard threatening to sue him?

We need oil. Our whole economy and everything we use is associated with oil. Yet we fight the people who are trying to get the substance and put as many roadblocks in place to obstruct them, not help them.

Because it's this president, I hate this, and believe it as a trick.

However, I would give clinton, and even Carter a bit of a pass, because it plays as a prelude of what is to come.

So far, my oppinions about this president are well founded, though, I still think that I would give a little room to others.

I've worked in a lot of places, and in all of those places when the dook hit the rotary machine, people focused on those area's the boss was looking at, and then made sure that the other area's were corrected before the boss could get there.

But This guy?
