At this point, I am seriously beginning to wonder if President Obama, despite tough talk, not imposing governmental control over this growing catastrophe will wind up bringing down his administration. After all, how much longer does this have to go on before one can plausibly declare it a threat to national security? I seem to recall that after Hurricane Katrina the infamous Blackwater soldier of fortune agency was brought in to brutally quell any real or potential mayhem in New Orleans. This time around we have literal black water. The Universe works in mysterious and yet implacably poetic ways, doesn't it?
But back to the far fetched notion that this ongoing event might cascade into a political disaster for the Obama Administration. It certainly wouldn't be what anyone could plausibly forecast as a proximate cause for Obama's political collapse, so, by virtue of some off beat contrary logic, I'll immediately place the odds on this potentially burgeoning- let's call it The (underwater) Teapot Domebama- debacle, at 10 to 1 that it topples, by hook or by crook, (pun sort of intended) the sitting President. It it does, it wouldn't, by any means, make this horrific event worthwhile, but it would fulfill the dictum that every black cloud has a silver lining.
