In a rare address from the Oval Office, our esteemed Teleprompter President simply dished out more inflammatory rhetoric . Again acting like a schoolyard punk, Obama boasts that he will "make BP pay" rather than offer any pragmatic solutions to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
All this chest beating, and still the public's assessment of his handling of the crisis continues to decline. Maybe, just maybe, it's time to work on solving the problem in cooperation with those who know most about it rather than distracting everyone with bursts of pseudo-machismo. In other words, maybe he should just start acting like a president.
