What did you think of President Obama's Oval Office address



Read the speech: The White House has made available a transcript of President Obama's address to the nation about the Gulf Coast oil spill from the Oval Office on Tuesday night. In part he said, "Already, this oil spill is the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced.  And unlike an earthquake or a hurricane, it’s not a single event that does its damage in a matter of minutes or days.  The millions of gallons of oil that have spilled into the Gulf of Mexico are more like an epidemic, one that we will be fighting for months and even years.''

Watch the speech: A video of President Obama's address  is available at the White House YouTube channel.
