    I think you were missing my point

    They always have something more important to do. There is always someone that is better suited to the job.

    Its not about the gulf and its not about Obama its about how our political leaders view situations now vs how previous leaders viewed them.

    There is a difference between this, 9/11 and Katrina

    9/11 required an inspirational moment to provide moral support for the nation, Bush did that when he went to the ruins, a good thing

    Katrina, being a massive incident with peoples lives at stake should have had more then just a fly by

    The BP spill is on going incident a chronic illness rather then an acute one.

    When the first few days the reports were that it would be fixed in day or so, and that the oil will be contained, there would have been no need to panic.

    The best and only thing Obama can do is state that the people negatively effected by this oil spill will be compenstated and that BP will be doing the compensation

    Really. Was George Washington qualified to put on a wet suit, dive down, and fix this well? And would this have been the best use of his time, as commander in chief?

    Your comments are simplistic and a little ridiculous.

    maybe, but not many people really care about something a forums member says

    important, in contrast, and even more ridiculous is the president saying---i won't go to LA, i will go to LA, i will drill, i won't drill...

    i'll figure it all out when i get back from iowa!

    LOL!

    Re: Oil slick poses political peril for Obama

    today, he politicized his commencement address to the hard working grads from the u of mich, going out of his way to attack "extremist" critics of big govt who might just find in their "off base" way that "perhaps violence is justifiable"

    he then called on all sides to "tone it down"

    LOL!

    he just can't help himself

    now, there's a message our kids need to hear as they head off into today's JOB MARKET

    My Way News - Obama takes direct aim at anti-government rhetoric

    This isn't something that Obama can figure out. It's something that the scientists, technicians, and military personnel are working their asses off on.

    Please stop using our tragedy for your personal hyperpartisan bully pulpit. It's unseemly.

    No George Washington probably wasnt not qualified to put on a wet suit and fix an oil well but this probably would not have stopped him from trying because it was something that needed done.

    Perhaps my comments are simplistic. I am a simple person that has a very difficult time expressing myself in written form and I am often times misunderstood. I appolgise for this.

    I do not think anyone has understood what I am trying to say here so I will just move on.
