Can it be true - Obama is taking action?

A lot of rhetoric is all we've heard from Obama since the BP disaster.  As president, Bush Jr. liked to say, "I'm the decider..." Well, it's about time Obama take the authority he has been given by the electorate and take action against the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Obama needs to do what's right and place restrictions on further off-shore oil exploration, fund a concerted "green energy" initiative. He needs to use his presidential authority to do what the Republican minority has refused to do thus far, i.e. bring our troops home, close Guantanamo, stop funding a top-heavy Pentagon and bring back "real" regulation to the financial industry. Speaking big without an equally big stick is just a sign of impotence.
