Lack of Presidential Leadership from Obama is a major reason the stock market keeps falling. As Senator and as Candidate for President, Obama received $77,000 from British Petroleum, making him its top political recipient.
Obama, wake up! Show some independence of thought! Stop being a puppet of BP! Concerned local citizens have been told by Coast Guard that all clean-up efforts must go through BP chain of command.

Why is BP mum on the best immediate solution, the exploding and collapsing the 15000' well from sea floor to oil reservoir?
Given BP's terrible past safety record and recent whistle blower warnings, why are BP's other rigs allowed to work until they are proven safe?
