Oops .... Spoke Too Soon

Obama could not resist. After having calmly left the fixing of the leak to BP, now Obama has bowed to the talking heads and begun to demonize BP. That won't help anybody. BP's efforts to cap the well should be supported. What Obama should be working on is the clean up. Instead Obama is busy conjuring up sound bites to try to deflect blame away from himself and on to BP and on to George Bush.

Too bad. This is a time when all Americans should ban together to help our coast lines recover from this disaster. Time spent on demonizing other folks in the hope of political gain is time not spent trying to get to a solution for the most horrifying ecological disaster of our time.

Shame on Obama and shame on any politician -- Republican or Democrat -- trying to use this tragedy for political gain.
