Why Dems Won’t Let Republicans Visit the Gulf

The thugs running the Democrat Party — and by extension, our country — have forbidden Republicans from visiting the mess Obama’s incompetence and/or malignance has caused in the Gulf:

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) wanted to fly 10 lawmakers down to the Gulf of Mexico to see the damage caused by BP’s gigantic oil spill first hand.

House Democrats said no.

The request was denied by the House Administration Committee, using bureaucratic doubletalk and references to BHO’s Department of Homeland Security as grounds for its refusal.

Republicans, however, say Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa.), who chairs the committee, has approved at least a dozen such trips in 2009 alone — something Democrats don’t deny. …

Republicans say that Democrats are just trying to shield lawmakers from going to see the damage in the Gulf.

More specifically, they may not want Republicans to see that the cleanup efforts are a farce:

GULF SHORES, Alabama – Former oil clean-up worker Candi Warren says she signed up to make a difference, but soon found out the work of cleaning the beaches was all cosmetic.

“All cosmetic” — that about sums up Obama’s political appeal. Meanwhile, the same bureaucratic roadblocks that prevent Republican lawmakers from visiting the scene are used to prevent any meaningful amelioration of the damage.
