Michelle O at the beach?

They should get Garrett Morris to reprise his SNL role as the cleaning woman at Three Mile Island - but out on the beach, and Obama can play the part of Jimmy Carter, since he's been doing that part for years now.

I see the SEIU could spare at least one "worker" for a day at the beach.

recovered liberal democrat:

Been there, got the t-shirt. Much better to skim the oil from the water than wait for it to get to the beach. Once again the uni-corn is already out of the barn.

Obama promised to get us all back to work, good to see he fulfilled that promise for at least 1 person.

Mac Lorry:

Given its hurricane season and the well is yet uncapped the worker realized their job, while secure, is nevertheless pointless.

Well there's ONE job created!

It's in the union contract ... (Below threshold)
P. Bunyan:

It's in the union contract that the guy gets a 45 minute break every hour so it's gonna take a while to clean this beach.

Actually I'm kinda surprised by this photo, though. Usually when you see union guys on a project like that there're five guys leaning on shovels watching the one guy who's "working".

Ain't no one that can breas... (Below threshold)

Ain't no one that can breast-feed a shovel like a union member!

No, I am not a freaking pen... (Below threshold)

No, I am not a freaking penguin! Now, leave me alone, go back to the White House, Mr. President, and play some golf or something equally useful.

Dave Williams:

Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, avoids deportation to Kenya by taking a shovel ready job.

Couldn't he at least get McCartney or such out there to entertain these guys doing the work instead of him and Plugs?

Dave Williams:

After Congress "redistributed" the $20 billion BP escrow funds to earmarks, bailouts, and campaign coffers, this is all they had left to actually clean up the Gulf.

Tsar Nicholas II:

What's surreal is that guy will keep voting for Obama even after he's dead.

What's truly surreal is that guy will keep voting for Obama even after he's dead.

Are we sure thats a guy?

Obviously non-union. Didn't get the mandatory break schedule.

Oh, Hell NO! I ain't clean... (Below threshold)

Oh, Hell NO! I ain't cleaning that up! Not in my contract! Where's my Congressman?

Barry approves of this message.

The only worker for miles looked up.

What was that sound? The surf?

No, it was crickets!

Florida Evans: " Lord amighty, I voted for him 6 times, the least he's could do is a fly-over."

The remake of the movie "9" starring Barrack Obama.

Jim Addison:

They might at least have given the guy a wider rake!

Hey - maybe they should rename the place the "President Barack Hussein Obama Beach" in honor of the man who made it what it is?


P. Bunyan @ #9 ~ The unionized "observers" were there, but of course they were cropped out of the photo.

"Earth to Obama?"

You suck!!

I do make fun of the Obama response but at least this person is doing something or attempting to.

I also am worried about hurricane season. If not capped by the middle of August, if a hurricane comes through, that mess will be all over the gulf coast land. Hurry up Beyond Pertroleum. ww

The mess will be falling al... (Below threshold)

The mess will be falling all over the middle of the country as acid rainfirst as a hurricane, then tropical storm. Noticed how a portion of the crude floats on top of the water, therefore we can conclude it will be picked up and distibuted with the torrential rains associated with these tropical systems.

Im not sure which would be the bigger disaster, Barrys Katrina or Barrys presidency? Its a tough call but Im going to say Barry takes the cake and all we get are crumbs.

Wouldn't a frontend loader ... (Below threshold)

Wouldn't a frontend loader and or bulldozer work better? Or is this Barrys brilliant idea of "job creation"? Hire 200 shovelers and fire 200,000 oil workers.. Yeah, coming from Hussein, somehow it all makes sense.

Where's Michelle and her obesity campaign when you need her?

If you really want to think... (Below threshold)

If you really want to think about something depressing, pull out a calculator or napkin and figure out how many workers $20 billion would hire... at $20/hr... for a year straight.

Anybody got a snowblower?

"The sea turned into blood ... (Below threshold)

"The sea turned into blood like the blood of a dead man and every living thing in the sea died." Revelation 16:3

"But I don't want the folks... (Below threshold)

"But I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking."
Prescient Barack Obama

Did Al Sharpton trade his bullhorn for a shovel?

It works better when your hearts in it. By the way, I'd do that for 20 bucks an hour tax free.

Barry?? Create a job?

Both the job and the shovel look ready.
