Have you noticed that there has not been a peep heard from the normally loud and opinionated "drill baby drill" crowd, ever since the recent oil spill fuck-up in the Gulf of Mexico?
Quiet... Strategically mute and vacant, these folks. Along with their now strangely silent, politically inert, "ditto-headed" sycophants.
"President Obama: I hope you have learned something from this. Any time you listen to, think about, or yield to Republican wishes, something is bound to blow-up, wash-out, or sink. When the blow-up, wash-out, or sinking occurs - they'll stand (far-off) to the side and look up at the clouds with their hands in their pockets (whistling and shit). And THERE you will remain - alone, in the spotlights, before the people, to clean-up.
Isn't that what's happening now? Isn't it?"
Yes... Is the correct answer.
Stop listening to those snake motherfuckers, and go forth with the progressive mandate that the people have given you.
