So now that the oil is still flowing, Obama is getting more in tune with the Gulf residents, not bad 2 months afterwards, if I recall correctly he sent Eric Holder an attorney there first, seems like some environmental people should have had their boots on the ground first.
"This will be contained," Obama said. "It may take some time, and it's going to take a whole lot of effort. There is going to be damage done to the Gulf Coast, and there is going to be economic damages that we've got to make sure BP is responsible for and compensates people for." Something we agree on, just have to make sure claims are legitimate, not that someone would pull a scam like with Katrina funds. Sure there are already scams going on, like in the Oval office. Did I hear that BP donated to the Obama campaign, yes i did millions of times over.
Helen Thomas retires after some comments about Israel, this has been along time coming, she was old news and in the press room she was more of a monument than a reporter, people afraid to move that monument out of the way. Her picture on Yahoo made me afraid of her.
