Obama: “Did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?”:: Bush : “Mission Accomplished”


A beach after an oil spill.

The left used the “mission accomplished” phrase as a way to demonstrate the disconnectedness and tin ear of the Bush administration.

Obama unwittingly offered a similar phrase to characterize his own administration’s performance in the Gulf oil spill when he quoted his daughters as saying “Did you plug the hle yet, Daddy?”.

It would surprise me if that phrase did not catch on to perfectly capture the incompetence, disconnectness and the lack of judgment.

Obama took responsibility for the oil spill this morning (finally?  Way to go Brownie?). An unworthy part of me wondered if that meant somebody told him that the top kill was going to work and then there would be a happy coincidence between his “arrival to take charge” and miraculous progress?

Yes, unworthy
