It is possible for Obama to make a call to send real troops to secure our borders while setting up a meeting with the BP executives.
He's trying to keep America's eye focused soley on the oil spill, rather than on his failure to secure our borders from illegals, drug dealers, and terrorists. That required presidential act might tarnish his image in the Hispanic community.
Maybe he needs to be reminded that America didn't vote for a politician. We voted for a president. What we got was a corrupt, wild-spending pen pusher.
