55 Days after the continued gushing of 1-2 million gallons of crude oil into our oceans every single day, (the equivilant of the Exxon Valdez spill ever few days), and after criticism that Obama hasn't done what he needs to do to take charge, and to protect the American coastlines and shores Obama has finally shown everyone that he is taking charge and showing what he is capable of. Internet headlines everywhere flashed the latest headline on the fight to save our nations coast...
"The Coast Guard sent a testy letter to BP's chief operating officer that said the company urgently needs to pick up the pace and present a better plan to contain the spill by the time President Barack Obama arrives on Monday for his fourth visit to the beleaguered coast. The letter, released Saturday, follows nearly two months of tense relations between BP and the government and reflects the growing frustration over the company's inability to stop the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history."
Nothing to worry about any more folks, the Obama administration had the Coast Guard send a letter asking BP to hurry.
The dispute escalated on the same day that ominous new signs of the tragedy emerged on the beaches of Alabama. Waves of unsightly brown surf hit the shores in Orange Beach, leaving stinking, dark piles of oil that dried in the hot sun and extended up to 12 feet from the water's edge for as far as the eye could see.
