"The day that the rig collapsed and fell to the bottom of the ocean, I had my team in the Oval Office that first day," Mr. Obama said. "Those who think that we were either slow on our response or lacked urgency don't know the facts. This has been our highest priority since this crisis occurred."
Do you agree? Do you REALLY feel he is doing everything in his power to stop the flow of oil in the Gulf?
If so, then take a look at this little video montage, and please explain how you have come to such a conclusion.
Based on the first 42 days, since this disaster occurred, I can, without a doubt, conclude he hasn't even come close to addressing this issue--except of course when there is an opportunity for a planned photo op! LOL :o)
If a manufacturing plant were to explode, all government enforcement and government protection agencies would be on hand to logistically and physically ensure the people and the COMMUNITY were safe. In this case, Jindal ASKED, BEGGED for the federal government to help protect marshlands. The Federal Government wouldn't step up and help. Instead the Federal Government said they needed to do studies to see the environmental impact of Jindal's request. Political posturing on the side of the Federal Government. jmo

"Potential environmental threat is 700,000 gallons of diesel on board the Deepwater Horizon and estimated potential of 8,000 barrels per day of crude oil, if the well were to completely blowout," The quote comes from one of the logs of the Coast Guard dated on April 21, less than a day after the accident.
It was an obvious disaster within a week of it blowing. In the case of disasters, we expect quick action from the President and the Federal Government. Governor Jindal was begging for help. Yet it was over a month before Obama and Co. took any action, other than assuring people BP would pay for the clean up.
