New Orleans Leader Repeatedly Lied to by Obama Regime, Claimed 140 Oil Skimmers Deployed, After Calling Bluff Admit There Was Only 31…

Obama and his crew lie like it’s a natural body function…

Billy Nungesser, president of New Orleans’ Plaquemines Parish, sensed that a chart showing 140 oil skimmers at work — a chart given to him by BP and the Coast Guard — was “somewhat inaccurate.” So, Nungesser asked to fly over the spill to verify the number.

The flyover was cancelled three times before those officials admitted that just 31 of the 140 skimmers were actually deployed.

The incident is detailed in a report released Thursday by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Republicans say the report provides evidence that the Obama administration misrepresented the assets devoted to the cleanup, misrepresented the timing of when government officials knew there was an oil spill and misrepresented the level of control the government had over the matter. It also claims the Obama administration seemed more interested in public relations than cleaning the mess and plugging the hole.

The report, which relies on interviews with several local officials in Louisiana, goes on to quote Nungesser, who had been on local and national television enough so that the White House became concerned. Two White House officials visited him on Father’s Day and said, “What do we have to do to keep you off TV?” His answer was, “Give me what I need.”

Other Parish officials said the administration did not provide as many assets as it claimed. One Parish official called these “phantom assets.”

The report also states that the people in the Gulf do not support President Obama’s six-month moratorium on offshore drilling, and also criticized Obama’s delay in allowing international assistance until 70 days into the spill.

  • The photo shows the core recovery operation. Check out BP's website for the names of all the ships. They also posted their plans for July. As for skimmers, that's just a PR thing to keep local fishermen employed.

  • Guess old Obama never figured his political enemies would think of counting them..(sarcasm). Sounds like BP gave a briefing (with chart) to the government (Coast Guard) that was not totally accurate which gave to those aforementioned political enemies all the excuse they needed to accuse Obama himself of lying. Typical.

  • I can only recall a few times since he came onto the national scene that Obama told the truth. One time was when he said his cap and trade bill could cause electricity costs to sky rocket. The other time was when he said the US was the greatest nation on Earth and he was going to change that.

  • Gosh, lying and corruption during the oil disaster?? B..b..but how? LOL! What the fuck else would you expect? The more these people mis-handle this crisis, the more it reinforces the idea that they don't care.
