Obama Talks to Larry King About Oil Spill

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he's "furious"
about the situation in the Gulf of Mexico, and he says BP hasn't
moved fast enough to respond to the massive oil spill there.
The president said in excerpts of an interview for broadcast
Thursday on CNN's "Larry King Live" that BP has felt his anger -
although he says "venting and yelling at people" won't solve the
problem.
Using his strongest language to date on the spill, Obama said:
"I am furious at this entire situation because this is an example
where somebody didn't think through the consequences of their
actions."
Obama had not previously voiced sweeping criticisms of BP. But
Thursday the president said he hadn't seen the kind of rapid
response from BP that he'd like.
