For all his reputation as the nation’s Top Talker, Barack Obama took his sweet time giving a maiden Oval Office address to the country. And waiting another nearly 60 days to speak nationally about the oil spill that’s become the worst environmental disaster in the nation’s history.

And all of them inexperienced on a disaster of this scale.
Dream Solution……. stuck at 55,000′ windmills and solar panels
