As we approach the 50-day mark for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, citizens across the Gulf Coast are growing increasingly angry over the disaster response. Haley Barbour, governor of Mississippi, is angry with the Obama Administration, even though he says that we need to expand offshore oil drilling in the Gulf. BP CEO Tony Hayward “wants his life back.” And the body count for animals like dolphins and pelicans continues to rise. Mike Papantonio appears on MSNBC’s The Ed Show to give us the latest updates on the spill.
