Obama Heads to Gulf as Spill ‘Furor’ Shifts Toward White House

June 4 (Bloomberg) – President Barack Obama showed he knew a thing or two about oil tar balls when he arrived last week on Fourchon Beach in Louisiana.

“Either the boom soaks stuff up, or manually you can pick up these tar balls as they’re coming ashore,” he told a group of reporters.

Spending about 15 minutes on a largely unsoiled beach is as close as Obama has come to the worst oil spill in U.S. history, one that is challenging his presidency as even some fellow Democrats complain that he has been too detached.
