People want the President to exert leadership to turn things around.

The oil leak. Unemployment. Credit card scams. Foreclosures. Predatory corporations. Environmental destruction. Global warming. Roads and bridges crumbling. Incomes stagnant. Schools getting worse. Companies moving overseas. Problem after problem.

People want to know, “Why doesn’t the government push BP aside and take over?” The answer is, “Government doesn’t have the resources to stop it.”

‘Top Kill’ LIVE feed: BP says oil spill stopped + No confirmation that Top Kill has been successful



May 27, 2010 — The U.S. coastguard claims engineers have managed to use mud to stop the flow of oil from the leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico.
