In tough situations, Mr. Obama sometimes turns personal, and he has done so here. (During the health care debate he spoke often of his mother, who died of cancer.)I grew up near the Atlantic Ocean. It's also sacred here, too, champ.
Now he invokes his upbringing and his daughter to talk about how the oil spill is consuming him.
“When I woke up this morning and I’m shaving, and Malia knocks on my bathroom door and she says — did you plug the hole yet Daddy?” he said, recounting how often he thinks of the spill, adding, “I grew up in Hawaii, where the ocean is sacred."
Thanks to Mr. Right for the image.
