Title: Blog by Novelist William S. Frankl, MD

Not Presidential

Yesterday morning, while being interviewed on “Good Morning America,” President Obama was asked about how involved he was with the on-going problems related to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He indicated he was very involved, and that he was speaking everyday to many people in order to know  “whose ass to kick.” This was a crude statement, even more crude than the “boot on the neck of BP” attributed to Interior Secretary Salazar.
I guess this is the kind of language used in the political back rooms of Chicago. Should it be used in Washington? On national television? Is that the language our children should be encouraged to use?
