Heal the Waters

Hopefully, Barack Obama’s infamous nomination acceptance speech from two years ago will start proving prophetic any minute now:

“Generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

They sure could use those magic, restorative powers in the gulf coast states right now. 

Questions: Does the “we” in that speech now include British Petroleum?  And was this foretold resurrection of the environment what the administration meant when they said that they’d had a plan and been working on fixing the oil spill “from day one?”
