President Barack Obama is defending his administration’s response to their involvement or lack thereof in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday, telling an interviewer he has met with experts to learn “whose A$$ to kick.”
“I was down there a month ago, before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the Gulf,” Obama told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview scheduled to air Tuesday.
“A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be.”
A variety of critics have accused Obama of being too rational in his approach to correcting the tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico and the President is not happy to say the least.
When asked about a perceived lack of administrative force and of putting too much trust in the oil company BP Obama says,
“I don’t sit around talking to experts because this is a college seminar.”
“We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose a*s to kick.”
There is no telling when this oil spill will be fixed but we can be sure that Obama is going to do everything in his power to keep this disaster from becoming his version of Katrina even if that means he has to kick a few as*es in the process!
