Obama Visits Gulf, Pledges to Stop Leak

Friday, May 28, 2010

••• President Barack Obama has told the people of the U.S. Gulf Coast they won’t be ‘abandoned’, in his most impassioned remarks yet on the United States’ worst-ever oil spill.

‘To the people of the Gulf Coast, I know you’ve weathered your fair share of trials and tragedy,’ Obama said, in a reference to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 which triggered a botched government response.

‘I know there have been times where you have wondered if you’re being asked to face them alone,’ Obama said on a barrier island off Louisiana during his second tour of disaster hit-areas on Friday.
‘I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone.

‘You will not be abandoned. You will not be left behind. The cameras at some point may leave. The media may get tired of the story. But we will not,’ he said.

‘We are on your side, and we will see this through. We’re going to keep at this every day until the leak is stopped, until this coastline is clean, and your communities are made whole again.

‘That’s my promise to you. And that is a promise on behalf of a nation. It is one that we will keep.’
