Circle of Thugs

Sarah Palin says the president should broaden his circle of thugs and let in the Alaska oil team.

While Palin doesn't have much sway with public opinion amongst the socialists, the Dutch are supposed to, although it appears no one told the circle of thugs.

Three days after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, the Dutch government offered to help.

It was willing to provide ships outfitted with oil-skimming booms, and it proposed a plan for building sand barriers to protect sensitive marshlands.

The response from the Obama administration and BP, which are coordinating the cleanup: “The embassy got a nice letter from the administration that said, ‘Thanks, but no thanks,'” said Geert Visser, consul general for the Netherlands in Houston.

The flow of black gold into the Gulf has carried with it an end to liberal silence over the inadequacies of the Obama administration. That's a game changer.
