President Barack Obama pledged Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address to fight the spill with the people of the Gulf Coast.

were stern: "We will make sure they pay every single dime owed to the people along the Gulf coast."
You're going to make sure that BP pays every single dime that is owed to the people along the Gulf Coast?
You said it.
Now we expect you to do it.
Just so we're clear.
This will include providing a YEARLY compensation to all of the fisherman who have lost their livelihoods due to BP's negligence for as many years as they are unable to resume their employment.
This will also include compensation to the states and local businesses for all of the years that they suffer lack of tourism due to BP's negligence.
You're also going to make sure that BP sends out hundreds and hundreds of HAZMAT workers to clean up the beaches.
Sounds good to me.
Make BP compensate the people and the state for loss of income and tourism for as many years as this oil catastrophe affects them and demand that BP send out hundreds of hazmat workers as they did when you arrived in the Gulf Coast and disappeared when you left.
Make good on your promises.
Otherwise, you're just blowing smoke.
Just like every other politician who speaks from both sides of his mouth in order to appease the people, but, in reality, does nothing.
So, then you're going to make BP "pay the price."
Just want to make sure that we're clear.
Are we clear?
