“Thanks, but we got this”

So was the message by the Obama administration regarding cleanup help for the oil issues in the Gulf of Mexico.

We don’t need no help from you cheeseheads!

Besides, the Jones act prevents it. And Mr. Obama isn’t willing to waive the rules for an unprecedented situation.

So how many miles of beaches have been damaged, how many acres of marsh have been contaminated?

Look: I blame BP for the issue. But the FedGov should remove bureaucratic roadblocks and help with the mitigation of the damage.

And that they haven’t done.
