BP’s PR campaign hasn’t convinced Senators Kerry and Cornyn.  This morning on This Week Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) told me BP’s response has been “lousy…they are the ones that started this problem.”  Cornyn didn’t let the Administration off the hook either.  “I think a lot of the confusion has been because no one has really known who’s in charge…we need the President to step up and assert himself.”

Senator Kerry said the President did just that.  “From day one, from the first moment, from within hours of this happeneing, President Obama was notified.  The next day he held the principals meeting in the White House.  He’s been down there three times.  Every major person in the Administraiton has been there…they have been racing to try to make up for BP’s mistakes and for the absence here of a sufficient level of emergency.”
