This is a make or break moment for the Prez that’s up there with the Rev. Wright controversy. I’m rooting for him even as I’m very frustrated.

It took a long time and a lot of noise, but among the things the President will discuss is a rollback of the planned expansion of offshore drilling and the stepping down of the head of the Mineral Management Service in the wake of what is now the worst oil spill in U.S. history. It’s definitely past time for heads to roll and this would be a good & justified start.

That’s change I can believe in.

Here’s the live feed above. Press conference starts at 12:45pm EST. Below also note Greenpeace’s counter of oil spilled. Not sure if it’s up to date considering the new top kill but I think the sidebar with the varying estimates is interesting nonetheless.
