Though the president went to the Gulf this morning to show his deep concern about the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the communities it's affecting, the media was unimpressed. For example, MSNBC whines that President Obama "stops short of feeling America's pain." Yet as our very own Barbara points out in her Daily BuzzFlash Minute this morning:
Rather than a cool head and an informed plan, they want a president who screams "fire" in a movie theater... Give me a man who can maintain a calm approach that actually solves the problem any day over a jerk-off spouting platitudes with a bull-horn!
Still, having a president rage against the ineptitude and secrecy of Big Oil could be mighty cathartic right about now. But at a time when political discourse seems to have devolved into who can scream the loudest, is it indeed best that we have a calm voice at the helm? What do you think?
