The CEO of BP had the unmitigated gall to race his boat this past weekend. There is a problem over here in the Gulf, Mr. Big Shot.

I’m going to guess the beleaguered CEO of BP is more than just passingly aware of the fact that oil is leaking into the Gulf and washing up on shores.

Oil and water don't mix

I would like to point out something no one seems to be talking about. This guy, Tony Hayward, doesn’t know how to stop the oil from leaking into the water. He isn’t supposed to know how to stop the oil from leaking into the water. He is supposed to run a company. He is a businessman.

What he should have had was a plan for any disasters and backup plans should they be needed. He should have had a list of eminent scientists who could fix the problem.

But really, this guy is a CEO not a SCIENTIST or ENGINEER.

He is not capable of fixing this problem.

President Obama played golf this weekend – after his staff complained about Hayward’s yachting events.

Hey, President Guy, we got a problem over here in the Gulf – you know – with a U not an O.

I would like to point out something we aren’t willing to admit. Obama doesn’t have a clue as to how to stop the oil leak. He isn’t supposed to know how to stop the oil leak. He is supposed to be a leader. He’s a politician.

What he should have had was a plan. (Please don’t blame all this on preceding administrations. All Presidents get stuck with issues from the preceding administrations. Obama has been President longer than Bush was before the WTC were destroyed – and there had been attempts made on the buildings during the preceding administration. This is just Obama’s albatross and he isn’t handling things any better than any other President stuck with such an abysmal problem.)

Anyway, a plan. There should have been a plan. As a nation of engineers and scientists, why is no one coming up with a plan? Surely there are some scientists or engineers or physicists or someone with some brains who can figure out how to cap this or funnel the oil to the surface in some way so as not to pollute the entire Gulf.

But really, Obama is a PRESIDENT not a SCIENTIST or ENGINEER.

What the White House might want to think about before casting stones, is what their own behavior looks like.

Both men sought out the jobs they hold. Neither of them is trained in the subjects needed to actually go out on the water and lead a team of somebodies who can cap the oil leak. Both men need to spend some time away from a problem to come back to the task at hand with a fresh outlook and a new perspective – and possibly some renewed energy. What needs to be done is this: find the proper people who can figure out some way to fix this problem. Neither the CEO nor the President is that man, they are the catalysts. And either they BOTH can take a day of respite, or neither of them should.
