The Obama Administration has aked for a halt on dredging sand berms off the Chandeleur Islands that just started last week, until the project can be relocated farther into the gulf. Nungesser fired off a letter threatening President Obama to step in and do something or face a tongue lashing on national T.V.
"Dammit, it took us long enough to get the permit now they are going to throw rocks at us. They all need to rot in hell for this."
Nungesser has been the face of the sand berm project, now he's red faced over the order for U.S. Wildlife and Fisheries.
"Some brilliant individual said we think a mile out is not enough it may scowl the island, or it may subside. So, let's shut it down."
Tuesday evening was the deadline to stop the dredging, to Nungesser it might as well have been high noon
"I asked the governor to let me stay out there tonight on the dredge, let em come out there and take the permit away.
Tell them the radio not working. We'll smash it with a hammer."
Nungesser is targeting President Obama as the only hope for continuing the work. In harsh letter he spelled out an option.
"Don't shut us down, let us lay the pipe three miles out and then let us move the dredge so we will be down less than a day and we'll refill the hole," Nungesser said.
He also issued a threat to the President in the letter if he didn't do something to help.
"It says if it shuts down, I'll be on Anderson Cooper at nine...and it won't be pretty."
Why HASN'T the Obama administration taken this tragedy by the horns and wrestled it into submission?
First off, the Governor of Louisiana is a Republican. Bobby J. simply CANNOT be seen as the savior of this mess. Then there's the hat-tip to the president's "base". The treehuggers WANT to see dead birds and fish and Conservatives, they WANT the whole world to watch while icky oil kills off the revenues from the Gulf Coast.
