president Barack Obama says from the oil-stricken Gulf of Mexico that seafood from the region is safe to eat and announced a new coordinated effort to make sure it stays that way.
In remarks from Theodore, Ala., on Monday, Obama said that the government will step up its inspections and monitoring to help ensure that the Gulf Coast food industry is getting the kind of protection and certification it needs to sell its products around the country.
Obama said, "We don't want tragedies on top of the tragedy we're already seeing."
The president had high praise for the Gulf seafood he at

I just read an article where Obama was comparing the Gulf oil spill to 9/11, and this is another prime example.
9/11 = the air is safe to breathe
Gulf oil = the seafood is safe to eat
