Day 51 Quotes Of The Day

Via Jim Geraghty, Hot Air's Allahpundit pundits on the astonishing news that Captain Kickass has not spoken with BP CEO Tony Hayward since the spill happened 51 days ago:
The One’s logic, such as it is, is that it’s not worth talking to Tony Hayward because he’ll only end up giving him the runaround — a curious position coming from a guy who campaigned on the virtues of “dialogue” and who’s been locked in halting negotiations with Iran for fully 16 months. Even Lauer is openly incredulous. Captain Kickass has nothing to say to a guy who potentially holds the fate of his presidency in his hands?

Geraghty in Morning Jolt notes a pattern:
Permit me a moment of sympathy for Obama; I’m not quite sure what would be gained by a presidential call to the CEO of BP. I presume somebody — Thad Allen? — is talking to BP’s highest levels regularly. Perhaps I’ve grown so underwhelmed with Obama’s talks with other CEOs, or Hugo Chavez, or Medvedev, or Cambridge cops that I’ve been conditioned not to expect anything to come from them.

Tick tick tick tick tick.
