  •  I'm referring to the Deepwater site (6+ / 0-)

    that he wanted to go see on his last visit but was thwarted due to weather. Obviously the weather is great down there today, so he should take a ride out there and see what is going on, firsthand.

    I read the article you linked and was disturbed to see this:

    Early in the morning in advance of the president’s arrival, hundreds of workers clad in white jump suits and rubber gloves hit the beaches to dig oily debris from the sand and haul it off. Workers refused to say who hired them, telling a reporter only they were told to keep quiet or lose their jobs.

    While I'm glad they found time to clean up the beach, the article implies that they did so because they knew the President was coming to the area. That would be why a marshland visit is so important. Firsthand viewing makes a huge impression.
