commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Obama will try to ‘Jawbone’ BP into setting aside $$$….

President Barack Obama, pictured this weekend, will meet BOP execs on Wednesday, one day after deliveringa primetime speech.

Am I surprised?

Nope…..

The President is gonna try to put more pressure on BP to set aside money in an address to the nation ……

This is 20% operational…….80% politcal….

While the Dog agree’s a ‘set-aside’ would be a good idea…..

The fact is Obama’s moves are principally to assuage the media……

Because Obama is slow to anger….

And generally seeks to deal with issues rationally ….

He is under attack from the media….

The media and others are seeking revenge for the accident….

BP like the president has hunkered down and gone about its business…

That simply isn’t good enough, egh?


I watched  the MSNBC special of the Oil Spill today…

What struck me was the laid back way everything was…

The response was principally to save large amounts of bird wildlife….

But the think was not hurried just resigned….

No dramatic music…

Just people out there doing their jobs…..


The media needs to show more of this

And stop beating up the President and BP…


We need to see more of what can be done to deal with the problem….

The political ‘dog and pony’ show will surly come later……

As will the fines…….
