WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's point man charting a new future for the oil-poisoned Gulf Coast will do the job part-time. Some environmentalists said the job demands someone's full attention.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who oversees 900,000 Navy and Marine personnel, is inheriting an amorphous second job as the Obama administration's leader of long-term environmental and economic planning. His task is no less than rebuilding a region still suffering after Hurricane Katrina and beset by decades of environmental problems.

Mabus won't resign from his Navy job. When President George W. Bush picked Donald Powell to lead the recovery after Hurricane Katrina, Powell resigned as head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

This has really become Obama's Katrina, only its worse. At least Bush - after bungling the initial response - hired a full time guy to work on the rebuilding.

Makes ya wonder doesn't it. They don't seem to be trying very hard to clean this mess up. And people who want to be out there cleaning are blocked from even helping.
