Obama is in a tough situation. In his press conference, he tried to reassure the nation that his administration was in charge and that, as president, the buck stopped with him. But the reality is, he isn't in charge because it is British Petroleum, not the federal government, that possesses the expertise and technology to tackle the massive oil leak. So those folks calling for him to do more and step in and replace BP, they are delusional. Hell, Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said as much: "Replace (BP) with what?" That said, it is clear that BP is damn near clueless about what will work.
