Why It Took 58 Days Before Obama Talked To BP On Oil Spill

The 58-day delay in talking to British Petroleum about their oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, makes President Barack Obama look incapable of leadership ability.  

The following video was made by the RNC, however, it could have been made by any organization with an interest in the well being of America, and in particular, the Gulf states who are the direct recipients of the oil leak wrath.   Michael Steele, Chairman of the RNC pointed out what the rest of America has long been discussing. 

And what will continue to plague the inept leader of the free world, who believes in recreation before a nation’s crisis.  Very unbecoming of a “president.”

“Over the past 58 days since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded tragically killing 11 workers, President Obama and his administration have dithered while the worst ecological disaster in American history has unfolded, wreaking environmental and economic havoc up and down the Gulf Coast. Leadership from this White House has been severely lacking. Since April 20th when this catastrophe began, President Obama has made the time to play six rounds of golf, take two vacations, attend two concerts, and go on cross-country fundraising junkets but not to pick up the phone and speak directly with the executives of BP. The Administration’s number one priority needs to be stopping this leak, cleaning up the damage, finding out what went wrong, and making sure nothing like this ever happens again. The American people are looking for Presidential leadership during this time of crisis, not executive finger pointing or backroom political power-plays seeking to force through yet another unpopular Democratic proposal that would only devastate the economy even further.”

What Took So Long?
