The major news networks are questioning the leadership of US president Barack Obama for his administration's turtle's pace response to the Gulf oil disaster.

The Kool aid drinkers will say Obama is doing the best he can. But during Obama's campaign for president, he highlighted George Bush's lack of response to the Katrina catastrophe -- and he said he would do better than Bush.

Well, so far, all Obama has done is sit on his hands and deflect blame everywhere else but where it belongs: on his doorstep.

During a live remote from the shorelines of Louisiana last night, ABC's "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer reported on the "anger" that is focused on Washington. "We saw a pickup truck that had a hand painted sign that said 'BP + The Feds = Another Katrina,'" Sawyer reported.

ABC News contributor and Democratic strategist Donna Brazille (who once was an unapologetic kool aid drinker) is now furious at Obama and his administration for not being "tough enough" towards BP. Brazille is a native of Louisiana, where oil from BP's crippled rig is blackening the shoreline.

CBS News' anchor Katie Couric reporting from the Louisiana coastline, slammed Obama and the EPA for limiting a chemical that could sop up the oil spilling from BPs oil rig at the rate of 2000 barrels per day. She spent half of her hourly newscast reporting on the massive oil leak.

And CBS' White House correspondent Chip Reid reports "critics on Capitol Hill just weren't buying what the White House was saying about the government's role in all of this and whether they could do more."

    How much do we want the gov in our everyday business? What is our gov suppose to do? This is BP's mess.

    Is there really anything he can do :shrug:

  • Cinderella

    So the same people who want less government involvement, are now complaining about not enough government involvement? While I agree the government should play a role in the cleanup process, BP needs to do more since it was their oil rig that caused this disaster.

  • CivilEngineer

    Soooo...the Obama Administration caused the leak?

    How about all parties involved stop playing the blame game and clean up the spill! I may not really like my home state but I don't wanna see one of our main industries just disappear along with all the wildlife in the gulf...just sad

  • SangriaSugar

    Really...I had no idea that Obama caused the leak. People should stop with the blaming :coffee:

  • Champagne Wishes & Caviar Dreams

    It seems like he gets blamed for everything , very sad !!!!!

  • Bri

    Ummm...what exactly is he 'sposed to do...use Sasha & Malia's old sippee cups to go scoop up the mess??? Any suggestions?? Ole boy can't win for losing... :think:

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    It ain't his fault but he has been eerily quiet about it. No press conference, statement of action, voice of concern...

    I guess he's more worried about his friend being approved for the Supreme Court. It's not like Democrats would ever win in an election from Louisiana, nor is it a "rich" state so I doubt it becomes a priority for him anytime soon.

    Had this been California, Barack and Michelle would be out there with some "Bounty" paper towels if need be.

  • meanNsurly

    Everything that goes wrong in my life are the fault of 2 ppl: Beyonce and Obama. I hit my toe on the door this morning.....Obama's fault cause he should be "protecting" black ppl and I was tortured this morning because they played Single Ladies on the way to work......that dayum Beyonce!!!!!

  • Bri

    O yeah, my gas light was on when I get in the car this morn....d*mn u Obama....***somebody get me a tissue***

  • CivilEngineer

    :lol: @mean...people really do believe that though.

    And Bobby Jindal is using this as a great oppurtunity to win re-election points by saying, "we're not going to wait on the federal government, we must act now." (reading directly from his manuscript, "How Robots Get Elected")

  • sugar-booger

    I do not think The president has done enough to help find a solution to this huge problem. This is a big deal and I don't think I have even herd him mention it but once. I am sorry people but if you ask me he is CRAP.

    Glad to see the news organizations are interested in the Gulf Coast because they sure did not give a ratz behind about Aiyana Jones' murder.

    A Conversation Between Two Strangers

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude
    and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,

    "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour
    ago, but I don't know where I am."

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon,
    approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level.
    You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09
    minutes west longitude.

    "She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Obama Democrat."

    "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically
    correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still
    lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

    The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."

    "I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

    "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going.
    You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air.

    You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve
    your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met,
    but somehow, now it's my fault."

  • bama_n_jersey

    If what I heard is correct SANDRA, the Federal Government did try to send help for this but the Coast Guard has told them that BP should fix this problem because it was partly their fault and they are well equipped to fix it.

    Remind me again who wanted off shore drilling :waiting: (oh yea the Republicans) and who was against it :thinking: (Obama)...but now that this disaster has happened it is his fault. Come on man. It is so funny that we hardly heard anythign from the Republicans when this first happened becuase they knew that the off shore drilling was something they wanted. If it was anythign else that Obama or ay other Democrat was for the Republicans would have been knocking on doors handing out articles.

    It is funny that people say ti is not about race but Obama has been criticized more in a little over a year than any President was during their whole term. Whatever he does someone criticizes it.

    @Lady Lew:
