Maybe not resolve,but expedite a quick response. He was busy with West Point..playing golf..photo ops with basketball and soccer teams. I hope someone taped his press conference on May 27, and have it on tape when he said from the start... three, four, five weeks ago we have been on top of this. He had no clue that Birnbaum no longer had a job because she was told not to go into meet with the committee and I hope someone has it on tape how he treated Jackie Combs in such a condescending tone with anger with the response "If she resigned I would have a paper on my desk". All of which has been scrubbed. Where were the booms that were needed from the get go for a burn. OOPS our gov. did not have them. They told BP get what you can from your connections around the world. He has taken two vacations since the start. He really has a concern. He behaves as if it is a bother ..it is interfering with his photo ops and MORE campaigning.
Maybe he should set up a tee on the beach and with one good swing.."Plug the d**n hole"..He has been practicung enough.
