Why did Obama wait 70 days to accept help from other countries?
I don't really have an answer to this question, but it is a great question. I can't for the life of me understand why he waited so long to accept the help offered early on after the oil well explosion. Ignorance?Complacency? Pride? I could think of many other things, but won't go there further..
Obama keeps claiming that he is doing all that he can do. Well, that's a bald face lie with regard to the spill. He is doing all he can do to court voters for the mid-term elections especially in the union labor and Latino segment. He has not relaxed the Jones Act to allow more ships from other countries to come in and assist with cleanup efforts. In doing so, he has played to the unions. He has done nothing to lean on the EPA to relax their choke hold on the Gulf. No one can broaden the effort to speed the cleanup without being blocked by the EPA. Again, Obama courting the rabid environmental vote. Out in Arizona, he has played to the Latino/Hispanic sector again to grab the vote and get his amnesty package passed. He has no redeeming virtue and will do anything to further party politics (not the democratic party, the socialist!) and collect votes. He may think it smart but I think it will prove to be one of the dumbest things a President ever did in office. WB
I think this disaster has just interfered with his leisure activities and he is geneerally annoyed. He is a total narcisist who truly think he needs the help of noone. I think it was also due to his union ties and their opinion on foreign aid.

Is it easy or difficult for you to accept help when you need it? Do you ask for help?

Why do do many believers assume......that someone is an atheist because they never looked for god? Why assume anything about a non believer without taking the time to ask? Many many atheists are Diener believers, even former clergy members. How arrogant is it to...

DACA was only supposed to be a temporary solution originated by Obama. Why did anyone living underDACA never take the initiative to apply for US citizenship? They had plenty of time and now they are crying. I would just like to know why they didn't move in that direction.

Why does Obama receive 50% more death threats than Bush did?Since Obama took office the number of threats against his life have increased dramatically compared to his predecessors. Is this because of his race or a measure of the depths American politics have sunken to?
