I wouldn't call it spin. Obama and his crew have had a week to do something......instead he waits until it's too late and promises the world. If Bush was still in office he'd be crucified in the press. But the Teflon Pres gets a pass, just like on everything else. Token gestures too late amount to inaction, exactly what's happened here. Yes, it is BP's responsibility, however, since it affects American citizens and industries, that makes it the administrations responsibility to make sure it is dealt with swiftly and completely. What does he have to say to those whose way of life may be erased forever due to his inaction? Spin indeed!
