No kidding, President Obama's declaration that his administration is calling the shots on the control and cleanup of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is giving British Petroleum wonderful legal cover. You see, when they get accused of allowing a particular bay to be soiled, they simply note that they wanted to do something, but the Obama team prevented them from doing so--and in too many cases, they'll be entirely correct.
Heckuva job, Barry.
