The Messiah will meet unconditionally with murderous dictators; won't talk to BP CEO

And he's certainly had a lot of time for other things to do. Change you can believe in:

In the nearly eight weeks that the ancient oil has been escaping its subterranean imprisonment, Obama has found....

...time for a couple mini-vacations with golf, a dose of party fundraisers, healthcare town halls, TV interviews, a high school graduation, a festive White House lawn picnic with members of Congress, a Paul McCartney music hoedown, an ABC July 4th TV taping and a session with a key Palestinian leader.

Thursday Obama issued important statements celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Department of Labor's Women's Bureau and King Kamehameha Day, and mustn't forget, Portugal Day.

But Obama hasn't found a few minutes to chat with Tony Hayward, the talkative CEO of BP, the petroleum protagonist in this environmental drama. Not even on the president's ubiquitous, magically-secure BlackBerry.

Almost eight weeks. What's he afraid of? It took less than two weeks to set up last summer's historic beer summit.

Now, in a confrontational letter a White House official has invited Hayward to meet there next week with Obama aides and the boss would stop by. That will be nine weeks.

Nevertheless, the faithful continue to contend that he is a "brilliant leader."
