Carville, a Democrat who was former President Bill Clinton's campaign manager, aired his frustrations with President Barack Obama's administration for what he called their "lackadaisical" response to the BP oil spill.
"It just looks like [Obama is] not involved," he said on the morning news show, as his face turned red and his voice grew louder. "Man, you got to get down here and take control of this, put somebody in charge of this thing and get moving. We're about to die down here."
I think that Obama needs to start listening to SOMEONE. He is pissing off his own base TOO. Do you think this LACK of response id going to hurt him in the long run? His Katrina maybe?

Obama is busy trying to get Boxer reelected in CA. Obama in SF for Boxer faces critics on spill
He is too busy trying to keep Democrat seats to work on real issues.

Ok, being conservative, this is going to sound really unlike me. Him going down to the Gulf isn't going to solve any problems. What, is he going to put on some galoshes and wade out and clean some pelicans? He isn't and never has been a hands on guy. He doesn't know how to make quick, effective decisions. He has a problem with making decisions at all. It's been what? A month? He is just now starting to feign concern and only because he knows that with the more time that passes the more lacking his response looks to everyone. Nobody needs the media to tell them that he isn't a good decision maker anymore. They see it with their own eyes and the pressure is getting to him. I hope to heck he is a one term president because in this dangerous world we live in, we need a decision maker and we need one mighty quick.
