Where is the President?

And another article, this time by Dick Morris, detailing the bureaucratic vetoes destroying the beaches and wildlife along the Gulf Coast.

The obvious fact is that Obama has no executive experience, nor do any of his top advisers. Without a clear mandate from the top, needed efforts to salvage the situation are repeatedly stymied by well-meaning bureaucrats strictly following the letter of their agency policy and federal law. The result, ironically, of their determined efforts to protect the environment has been the greatest environmental disaster in history.

Where is President Obama, and why isn't he overruling OSHA and the EPA and the Fish and Wildlife Administration and their myopic rules.  He holds his chin high, peering into the distance, but his vision is parochial.
