President Obama's Weekly Address, May 1, 2010 (Video, Transcript)

As the President beats back lobbyists seeking to weaken Wall Street Reform, he talks about an even broader threat that would vastly expand the influence of massive industries and their lobbyists in Washington. A recent Supreme Court decision opened the floodgates for corporations, including foreign corporations, to spend endless money on political ads that would give them even more power at the expense of American families – the President pledges to fight for reforms to stem that influence.

No one is chanting, "Drill, Baby, Drill", are they?

Well, Barack Obama has a full blown environmental disaster on his hands. And from this, I hope he has learned something from his pandering to drilling of the shores of America. I hope he has awaken to what a real disaster LOOKS LIKE off the shores of many Americans homes.


Experts say it's not clear yet how much the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will harm the environment along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and other gulf states. But they say it is clear the harm will be great.

That stretch of coastline is full of marshlands, replete with reeds and piles of dead grass that could soak up oil like a sponge. Unlike fish, the area's famous populations of blue crabs and oysters won't be able to outrun the slick. And, precisely at this time of year, the region is host to vast numbers of migratory birds returning from their wintering grounds in South America.

Besides the damage to fish and wildlife, even the land itself could be a victim of the spill. One scientist said if the oil kills marsh grasses, it could eliminate a key natural barrier that keeps Louisiana's precious coastline from eroding.

Add all that up, and one environmental activist described the range of possibilities as "bad to very bad."

Drill, Baby, Drill? Shit, even the Republicans are quiet on that one. I mean, who wants to go vacation on an "oily beach"? Do you? The winds are blowing this oil to some of the most pristine beach areas in this country. Can you say, "catastrophe"? And don't worry, folks are going to be heated and hot on the reaction of the Obama Administration as the damage tolls continue to come in.

President Obama asks voters to comeback or continue to VOTE Democrat (Video)

If you think that people are not angry out here, they are. Many are angry about Obama selling out the public option and we KNOW HE DID, handling of torture, the weak financial regulatory coming, DADT, immigration reform and NO CREATION OF JOBS.

Barack Obama never understood that many people, many first time voters worked their asses off to work to get him in office. The anger out here is real, not fake real. I am not talking about teabaggers, they would never vote Obama period, I am talking young folk, African Americans, Latinos, Independents.

Many feel he has not fought for them and has just negotiate everything away. For the Democrats to think they don't have a problem, think again. You do. The poll numbers says it all and not one poll, just look at

And to ASK people to come back, says it all. As I have written, Democrats who vote will vote, it is all the other people that put Democrats in office those are the ones you NEED TO VOTE.

Remember, the one with the juice, excitement is usually the one who wins.
