WASHINGTON DC (SR) - In his first address to the nation from the Oval Office, President Barack Obama Tuesday night accused BP of "recklessness" and vowed to make the giant oil company "crap gold bricks."
Seated at the storied Resolute desk with an American flag and family photos in the background, Obama read his teleprompter in a calm tone, with no sign of the contrived anger he showed earlier in the week concerning the spill.
The President devoted much of his address to reassuring the American public, saying his administration had developed a "comprehensive battle plan," and pledging, "When not golfing or on vacation, we will fight this spill with everything we've got for as long it takes - even forever."
While President Obama gave no details of the battle plan, we were able to get a copy (below) from a confidential White House source.
My comments: I don't know about you, but after listening to Barry and seeing his battle plan, I'm confident this oil spill thing is handled. Let's celebrate with a cool, delicious margarita!
