This is the worst response to a disaster I've every seen. Instead of putting protection of the coastline as the first priority, Obama has spent a month pointing fingers at BP and talking about how responsible they are for this. Obama can't do **** about the leak in any meaningful way, but he does have the power and resources to help the governors of the coastal states prepare for the oil coming ashore. He should have jumped on this first thing, and thrown everything he had at it. He'd have been a big hero by now, because he helped the people first. Beating up BP could have come later. Face it, Obama ****ed up.
