Obama, Biden: Delta Queen “no longer on administration’s list of things to do.”

May 6, 2009

A well researched article in the Marietta Register ("Obama, Biden: What Delta Queen?" – the article is no longer available) uncovers very discouraging facts about radically changed minds of Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama. Both in their election campaigns claimed to be strong supporters of a new exemption for the Delta Queen, Obama was even co-sponsoring an according bill in the Senate.

But Marietta Register reporter Tom Lotshaw found that this support has vanished completely, now that the election is history. It's nothing new that politicians are betraying their constituents in election campaigns, but in this case it hurts exceptionally bad. Giving "Yes, we can" a new meaning: "Yes, we can – betray you as much all other politicians can, too."

Basic information about the Delta Queen’s situation

May 1, 2009

I’ve recognized that – after almost two years of fighting for the Delta Queen to be saved – still many people don’t even know that the Delta Queen is in danger. When they learn, they first ask: What’s the problem with the Delta Queen?

To answer this question I’ve put together a quick briefing at steamboats.org about the Delta Queen’s situation, why she’s in trouble and how you can help.

Feel free to use this as reference and direct people to this web page when they want to learn about our campaign to save the historic steamboat Delta Queen.
