Obama White House Defends Itself Against James Carville's Oil Spill Criticism

Another Question of Who Do You Believe.  I like the President and am a huge supporter of him.  I just worry he is getting bad advice.  I was texting with a friend yesterday (who is from the Gulf area) while the President spoke, and the people down there want more compassion.  I will post about that later.  I don't think attacking James Carville will help the situation at all.

The White House defended itself against James Carville's scathing criticism of the federal response to the BP oil spill Friday.

During an Air Force One flight after the President's visit to Louisiana, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters that Carville, a Democratic strategist, didn't have his facts straight.

On Thursday, Carville continued to criticize the federal response and told Campbell Brown that he believes President Obama's advisers aren't relaying to the President the gravity of the disaster.

"I know I'm not a Harvard law... guy, professor of law at the University of Chicago," Carville said. "People down here know what they're seeing. It seems the President is madder at his critics than he is at BP."

Carville wanted to know why the Minerals Management Service, the agency in charge of doling out offshore leases and regulating the industry, was not better managed before the spill.
