When the president did his presidential TV show from Louisiana on Friday, was it produced by BP, the White House, or both?
Officials from Jefferson Parish claim BP bused 400 cleanup workers into Grand Isle on Friday in time for a visit from President Barack Obama. The extra workers were brought in for Friday only, at a rate of $12 an hour, officials told WDSU. They were mostly from Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes. (Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris) Roberts said that since oil started coming ashore in Grand Isle last week, no more than a dozen workers hired by BP have been seen on the beaches in the area, until Friday when the president arrived.Will Louisiana remain stranded after the president's 3 hour tour? Is he now engaged and offering leadership, or was that a Friday only thing?
