Where is Obama?

Is anyone else concerned by the fact that we haven't been given full disclosure regarding the Gulf Oil Spill?  B.P. still hasn't release all the footage of the oil spill, nor has it disclosed the true amount of oil currently leaking from the ocean floor.  Now add to that the fact that B.P. and the US Coast Guard have been turning away reporters investigating and reporting on the incident, this whole thing starts to smell like a cover up.

President Obama ought to order B.P. to release all information pertaining to the oil spill into the public domain and allow the press to full access to that information.  Instead, President Obama has stood on the sidelines and allowed B.P. to continue to destroy the Gulf of Mexico.

  1. That's a good point and observation. In addition to the destruction of the gulf, I've been wondering how the gas companies (or just BP, since I've always made it a point to use only BP) will use this as another reason to jack the fuel prices. As an aside, gas prices dipped by more than a dime late last week...

    From news images, it seems that there has been a lot of oil released into the gulf, making the Exxon Valdez spill seem like a glass a spilled milk, which had so many people "crying" over. Good question Tom; why isn't this a bigger deal to everyone, including Obama, than the Exxon Valdez?
