Discouraging news about the Delta Queen - Obama, Biden
 
Yes, we can - betray you as much as all other politicians can, too.

That's my conclusion from a well researched article by Marietta Register reporter Tom Lotshaw about the vanished support of VP Biden and President Obama for the Delta Queen.

Read my comments on save-the-delta-queen.org (" [URL="http://www.save-the-delta-queen.org/obama-biden-delta-queen-no-longer-on-the-list/"]Obama, Biden: Delta Queen "no longer on administrationís list of things to do."[/URL] ") and the article at the Marietta Register ("[URL="http://www.mariettaregister.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=999&Itemid=61"]Obama, Biden: What Delta Queen?[/URL]") for more.

If this is true, this is very discouraging indeed. Let's hope it isn't.

Well, it seams to be true. Tom Lotshaw is a very well informed and hard working journalist (one of the few who still do their homework!) and he is following the Delta Queen issue for many months now.

The only thing we can try now is, again, let the politicians know how many people are in support of the Delta Queen and how many votes they're loosing in the next election if they ignore us.

Still it was Biden that was quoted. We haven't heard it directly from Obama. Maybe we can still get him to commit by asking him to change the law itself to exempt non seagoing vessels.
