A Cocktail Napkin and Wile E. Coyote

FLG watched part of the President's speech, but grew annoyed quickly. Why? Let's summarize the points:
  • First, the cleanup.
  • the second thing we’re focused on is the recovery and restoration of the Gulf Coast.
  • The third part of our response plan is the steps we’re taking to ensure that a disaster like this does not happen again.

Wow, that's a top notch plan. Did you come up with it all by yourself? Oh, I forgot:
That’s why just after the rig sank, I assembled a team of our nation’s best scientists and engineers to tackle this challenge -- a team led by Dr. Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and our nation’s Secretary of Energy. Scientists at our national labs and experts from academia and other oil companies have also provided ideas and advice.

Well, FUCK ME! Those scientists said, let's clean this shit up, then restore, then ensure this doesn't happen again? Thank fucking Jesus we have fucking geniuses like Dr. Chu in charge of this fucking thing. It's not like a retarded monkey with a drinking problem could've come up with a plan like that on a cocktail napkin with a crayon.

And while FLG is at it, who is running the damn show on the technical front? They've lit the ocean on fire. They tried to seal the thing with mud. They tried to put a box with a big hose over it. They tried something called Top Kill. Who's running the damn show? Wile E Coyote? FLG's been waiting for the news to report the new ACME Rocket Rollerskates plan to stop the leak. If this is what our top scientist have got, then we need to pull them away from the Looney Tunes.

Is it me, or is there an increasing tendency these days to say "We'll//I'll do this," with very little explicit detail on how to reach the goal? I'm not just talking about Obama; lots of people seem affected by that attitude. Whatever happened to planning?
