It's always the previous administration's fault.

than in the clause which confides the question of war or peace
to the legislature, and not to the executive department."

"UPDATE: The U.S. Government has reconsidered a Dutch offer to supply
4 oil skimmers. These are large arms that are attached to oil tankers
that pump oil and water from the surface of the ocean into the tanker.
Water pumped into the tanker will settle to the bottom of the tanker
and is then pumped back into the ocean to make room for more oil. Each
system will collect 5,000 tons of oil each day.
One ton of oil is about 7.3 barrels. 5,000 tons per day is 36,500
barrels per day. 4 skimmers have a capacity of 146,000 barrels per
day. Had the US bureaucracy accepted the Dutch offer on Day 3 when it
came, it is clear that a lot more oil would have been surface
Sounds like an Obama screw up to me.
