Obama's Patience Wears Thin as BP Struggles to Contain Oil Spill Obama said "... Just plug the d--- hole! ..." Someone get him a diving suit and some bags of ready-mix! I don't think he has a clue about the difficulty involved much less the inherent risk of drilling for oil and the consequences of not drilling for it. He, like a lot of foolish Americans, want everything without any risk and, when they can't have it that way, will nail whomever they can about it. This comes from the leader who cannot - does not want to - plug the holes in our borders. Perhaps that's the "hole" he was talking about or maybe it was his own mouth which I wish he would plug.
