Obama's spill recovery chief will be part-time - Yahoo! News WTF? The job of cleaning up after the largest ecological disaster in US history, and restoring all the damage done to the Gulf over the history of the United States, only requires the attention that Mabus can spare from his full time job as Secretary of the Navy. Dont forget that we are fighting two wars, have to worry about North Korea torpedoing ships, and war might break out between Turkey and Israel. I think that alone keeps him pretty busy, but Obama and Jindall think he has time to also oversee the entire Gulf Coast operation. Don't you feel so much better knowing that Obama is on top of this?
