First an interview surfaces wherein General McChrystal, President Obama's hand-picked "guy" in the field in Afghanistan pretty much disses the leadership or lack thereof of The Won! Then Senator Kyl flat out calls the President a liar when the Prez denies that he told the good Senator that he didn't intend to enforce the U.S./Mexican border! And now, a New Orleans federal judge has struck down the Obama administration's six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, saying the government rashly concluded that because one rig failed, the others are in immediate danger, too.

The White House promised an immediate appeal. The Interior Department had halted approval of any new permits for deepwater drilling and suspended drilling of 33 exploratory wells in the Gulf.

Who knew there was as judge out there with common sense. If those wells are shut down, the equipment and personnel will go elsewhere - likely to other nations less than friendly to us! In what is more or less our territorial waters - so nothing in terms of safety is being achieved.

Amateur hour continues apace!
