WOW! It has only been 40 days since he decided to stop guessing on games and his next evolution to visit the area that he says he has been in charge of!
But, WAIT! This is BP's problem, right? Then why is Obama in charge and why is he involved now? Why are all the do-dads that are to take affect waiting for someone to act upon? Katrina? Did I hear this is Obama's Katrina? Remember the flak that President Bush got over Katrina? Hello?
PORT FOURCHON, La. (AP) - Intent on showing firm command of the deepening Gulf Coast crisis, President Barack Obama flew to Louisiana Friday and personally inspected a beach jeopardized by America's largest-ever oil spill.
Criticism of Obama is rising as crude continues to gush out of the leak weeks after the oil rig exploded and sank. Amid fears that the tragedy crippling the Gulf region's wildlife and economy could soon also engulf his presidency, Obama has launched a campaign to step up public engagement and directly confront the public's anger.
A day earlier, he held a rare White House news conference to address the matter, saying "I take responsibility" for handling what is now considered the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.
On Friday, he interrupted a Memorial Day weekend stay with his family at their Chicago home for the Gulf visit, with his first stop a beach where absorbent booms and sandbags have been laid to try to keep more oil from washing ashore.
No oil could be seen in the water during Obama's helicopter ride from New Orleans, over Louisiana bayous, to Port Fourchon. [...] go read the rest.
Poor Obama. Went for a helicopter ride and saw no oil. Imagine that? But, WAIT! He did see a wee bit. Oh my!
