    “There was something odd and silly about the idea of Obama’s delivering a prime-time, televised address . . .”

    Yeah. It’s not like we’re undergoing the worst environmental disaster in our nation’s history or anything.

    “If Obama were the sort of president who held regular news conferences”

    He was, and was criticized for having them too frequently and for being ubiquitous.

    “. . . his administration neither caused nor can stop the leak.”

    Sorry. Happened on “his watch.”

    Goes both ways.

    “Conservatives, needless to say, are going to rip Obama no matter what.”

    Not if they’re smart they won’t. He’s doing everything they could possibly want.
