Obama and the Oil Leak

A new AP poll indicates that 52% of Americans disapprove of the President’s handling of the Gulf oil spill. A whopping 87% disapprove of BP’s handling of the spill.

Now granted, this is clearly a severe technical problem and nobody, I mean NOBODY, is claiming to have a guaranteed solution. So therefore it’s sort of unfair to blame Obama isn’t it?

Well, yeah, I guess, but then nobody ever promised fair. If you want to be the man at the top of the totem pole, you need to be prepared to address the tough problems. It may not be fair, but that’s the way things work.

Do I have a solution? No, but I don’t think I’m qualified to be the President of the U.S. either.
