What do you expect - Barack Obama to swim to the bottom of the Gulf to fuse the BP oil leak with his X-Ray vision?
Was he supposed to use his super powers to travel forward in time to see any future problems and then return to the present to prevent them from happening?
The lax regulations which permitted BP to drill and operate Deepwater Horizon were already in place when Barack Obama took office.
What was he to do - physically inspect every valve, pump and pipe for their structural integrity within his first two years in office?
Was Obama expected to require that all rigs in the Gulf operate under the more stringent regulations required by many European countries? (Okay, he could have done this, but how could he have known that they weren't?)
Was Obama expected to review the Incident Action Plans of every energy company in America?
Am I mad at Obama's reaction to the situation in the Gulf?
Nope, not at all.
I never thought of Obama as being Superman.
