RNC to Obama: "What took you so long?"

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has announced a new web video in response to the President’s decision to finally meet with BP executives after 58 days of delay.
Chairman of the RNC, Michael Steele, quoted:
“Over the past 58 days since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded tragically killing 11 workers, President Obama and his administration have dithered while the worst ecological disaster in American history has unfolded, wreaking environmental and economic havoc up and down the Gulf Coast. Leadership from this White House has been severely lacking. Since April 20th when this catastrophe began, President Obama has made the time to play six rounds of golf, take two vacations, attend two concerts, and go on cross-country fundraising junkets but not to pick up the phone and speak directly with the executives of BP. The Administration’s number one priority needs to be stopping this leak, cleaning up the damage, finding out what went wrong, and making sure nothing like this ever happens again. The American people are looking for Presidential leadership during this time of crisis, not executive finger pointing or backroom political power-plays seeking to force through yet another unpopular Democratic proposal that would only devastate the economy even further.”
