Obama to revisit Gulf Coast next week

(CNN) – President Barack Obama will make another visit to the Gulf Coast next week to review efforts to contain and clean up the worst oil spill in U.S. history, the White House announced Tuesday.

Obama's itinerary will include stops in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, three of the four states affected by the 50-day-old disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the White House announced. It will be his fourth trip to the region since the spill erupted in late April.

Obama was in Grand Isle, Louisiana, on Friday, where he met with local business leaders directly affected by the undersea gusher and huddled with regional officials involved in the response effort.

    The President of the United States of America took an oath of office to protect and secure the boarders of this country; that is his duty. I just want to know if he is also visiting the places where the dolphins, turtles, jellyfish, crabs, and seabirds are dying.

    The situation in the gulf is important and needs to be addressed, however, everytime President Obama goes down it's just another photo oppourtunity. Too much too late.

    It doesn't matter if he moves to Gulf coast, the right wing nuts will say he's not there enough.

    We know what Bush did during a catastrophy. He flew over New Orleans in Air Force One. President Obama is engaged on a recurring broad level. He is sizzle over substance.
