ABC Attacks Gulf Coast Official as Ignorant for Criticizing Obama Oil Spill Response

Subject: txt engry hots msm -

Good Morning America's Elizabeth Vargas on Friday played defense for the White House, suggesting that a Gulf Coast official might be ignorant for attacking Obama's response to the oil spill as slow. Vargas huffed, "President Obama said in his news conference yesterday, that, quote, 'Those who think we were slow in our response or our response lacked urgency don't know the facts.'" [Audio available here.]

She complained to Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, "Do you think he was talking about you?"

It didn't seem to occur to Vargas how insulting that might sound, given that Nungesser is on the ground in Louisiana.
