President Obama: Gulf Coast Will Be in Better Shape Than Before

Umm ... has the crude messed with the POTUS' senses?


Either President Barack Obama is really feeling himself or he's on that stuff. On the heels of his latest visit to the Gulf Coast, President Obama promised that life would return to normal for people living on the stricken Gulf Coast and that the Gulf Coast would be better than before. Better than before? That oil must be going to his brain. Somehow we don't think that the worst environmental disaster in the history of the United States is going to end with it being better for the people of the Gulf Coast region. With the amount of damage caused to the environment, the economy and wildlife, in our minds, there's no way that it can be better than before. Officials said that about Hurricane Katrina too. Our skepticism continues.
