problem with Obama
After the BP spill, Obama SHOULD have gone on TV and declare that HIS regulators will inspect
every oil rig with a fine tooth comb.
I don't think anybody expected Obama to plug the leak instantly, but everyone DID want action.
There's a saying in the Army: "do SOMETHING, even if it's wrong!".
Bobby Jihdahl(sp?) did just that. He was out in front on TV nearly every day, flapping his arms wildly,
doing something. Granted, nearly all of it was wrong, but who cared? He stole the political spotlight,
and made Obama look disinterested by comparison.
Obama *could* have immediately retasked his own regulators/inspectors in a very public demonstration.
The public needed to be reminded that Obama WAS working on the problem. Instead, they saw an aloof
manager just sit back and wait for things to become worthy of his attention. Worse, when he did appear
to take the reins, what actually, did he do? He made some comments about 'kicking some advisor's a$$'
but I honestly don't know if he did even that.
That's a problem with Obama. I'm a supporter of this administration, but I CAN'T name ONE THING
Obama has actually done, in the wake of that spill.
Bart, if you can list some things he did, please post them repeatedly, to help remind us.

It's the same with the economy.
EVERY DAY, Obama should be in the news that he's working
hard on jobs,
He should be making us sick
with all the attention he's paying to jobs.
I suggest at least three
photo-ops per day until the election.
Tuesday - Repeat.
OR, we could have non-stop
investigations for the next two years.
And how will the Obamas react to a new Ken Starr pawing
thru Michelle's panty drawer?
