    Wonderful capture by Pete Souza of a very important meeting with regard to a environmental disaster that seems to have no end. The damage that is occurring every hour is staggering and hopefully something will be done and soon.

    British Petroleum should be held fully responsible for this disaster and the company needs to be investigated for criminal misconduct !

    Pretty Spring

    Do you know anything about Donald Berwick the guy Chairman Obama chose to run Medicare and Medicaid? He's a Harvard professor so right away we know he's going to be radical. We should look into it. I'll check out www.foxnews.com for fair and balanced information on this ass clown.

    I almost forgot. Congratulations to Great Britain and David Cameron. I wish you luck in cleaning up that disastrous mess Gordon Brown left you.
