Obama’s “Mission Accomplished” Moment

[Update: 8/19/10 – maybe Obama migth walk back the Gulf comments in light of the science: Report Paints New Picture of Gulf Oil as reported by PBS Newshour Gulf Oil Plume Map Adds to Debate Over Spill’s Undersea Impact and concerns of Congressman Markey and scientific testimony at Tuesday’s House hearing: Hearing on “The BP Oil Spill: Accounting for the Spilled Oil and Ensuring the Safety of Seafood from the Gulf” – I mean, even the New York Times said so! ]

Change? How is this any different in terms of propaganda than Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” flight deck photo-op? Or EPA Administrator Christie Whitman declaring the air safe after 9/11?

We’d like to thank all those environmental groups that focus so heavily on beach “water quality” for enabling moments like this. Will even one criticize Obama for this move?

Maybe Governor Christie will take the plunge in Barnegat Bay next week – “Jellyfish? We don’t need no stinkin’ jellyfish” – and claim the Bay is pure and open for business.
