Obama “takes charge” by licking a snow cone in the Gulf

[ The worst eco-disaster in US history, perhaps the world…  On other occasions, Obama calls it the new 9/11.  What’s with the sunny smiles and all-is-happy facade he beams? ]


White House dispatch: Obama highlights optimism in Gulf

Theodore, Alabama (CNN) – President Barack Obama used a lemon-lime snow cone to show that parts of the Gulf Coast remain unaffected by the oil spill –and that he’s fully engaged in the ongoing crisis on a day and a half visit to the region.

At his first stop in Gulfport, Mississippi, the president was briefed by Admiral Thad Allen and other officials on the latest effort to cap and contain the oil. And the president said that many locations are still open for tourism and unaffected by the spill.

“We just want to make sure that people who have travel plans down to the Gulf area remain mindful of that, because if people want to know what can they do to help folks down here, one of the best ways to help is to come down here and enjoy the outstanding hospitality,” the president said.

The president said he was updated on the need for better coordination of Skimmers and other assets involved in the effort, so that more oil is kept off area beaches.
