Nero and the Oil Spill

Now that we have Obama claiming the esteemed position as America's Nero what will the pseudo-intellectuals in the media be saying? Will they, as Bob Herbert did with the banking collapse, blame the oil spill and the lack of an effective response on laissez-faire capitalism?

Just last week President Obama said that the BP oil spill was like 9-11 and that we would have to take like measures to protect ourselves. What has he done? Put a moratorium on drilling and has sent barely one percent of our oil skimmer boats to deal with the problem (20 out of 2,000)

Keep fiddling Mr. President. As Nero - apocryphally - let the fire burn in order to direct public anger against Christians so, it seems, that Obama is doing much the same. Let the damages increase and direct public anger against oil companies (and capitalism, and anybody that wants America to be self-sufficient in energy).
