Does Obama wish he were a GE executive instead of the President of the United States? 

President Obama’s moonshot, all-hand-on-deck, common-purpose rhetoric in his BP speech was not wrong — it was just misplaced.

Why did he save the Dunkirk talk for developing cleaner cars when we have a very big, very difficult problem that is actually the responsibility of the federal government to fix? We have a giant hole in the federal seabed, spewing oil into federal waters, and washing ashore private and state shoreline.

And why are windmills and solar panels the President’s job?

This seems to be a pattern for the President: he sticks his hands where they don’t belong (private enterprise) and is hands off where he has legitimate authority (federal waters).
