Steve Benen on those complaining that President Obama can’t work magic with BP’s wild well:
- a) those who want to see the president don a wetsuit and head to the Gulf floor;
- b) those who want to see the president don a cape and fly around the planet really quickly in order to reverse time; and
- c) those who want to see the president pound on podiums and lose his cool, as if that would make a difference. (Thanks, Maureen Dowd, for comparing Obama to Spock again. That never gets old.)
Karen said it well.
