    WASHINGTON – Determined to project both command and compassion, President Barack Obama is returning to the Louisiana coast for a fresh reality check on work to stanch the oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico and the spiraling effects of the nation's worst environmental disaster. The president underscored the mounting political implications by abruptly canceling plans for a trip to Indonesia and Australia later this month.

    Addressing a crisis that threatens to undermine his presidency, Obama spoke for many Thursday in declaring himself furious at a situation that "is imperiling an entire way of life and an entire region for potentially years." Friday's trip will be his second to the Gulf in eight days, answering critics in both parties who suggest he has seemed detached from the crisis.

    Polls show the public growing more negative toward the president's handling of the spill.

    I will be curious to see the images and the media slant. He certainly has the ability to appear in control in certain situations, but I don't think this will be one of those moments for him.

    When CNN's Anderson Cooper says this:

    You know you've got a problem.

    Obama will not let this "good crisis" go to waste for his own personal gains. I would expect energy costs to increase substantially and the backroom deals with "green energy" companies to flourish.

    This is an incredibly sad disaster. I don't care how the Obama-Run MSM and loyal Hopey Changeys try and spin things. This President has handled this tragedy very badly. Just think if he had an (R) by his name? If he had that (R) by his name i'm pretty sure the MSM and Hopey Changeys would be spinning things quite differently. They would be up on their high horses demanding Impeachment by now. Most people have no idea how awful this spill really is. Corruption & incompetence are rampant in this administration at this point. It's very sad.

    Pointing his finger .....

    I'm so furious, I'm going to campaign my way through this disaster and make it political. But this isn't about me.
