Obama was hailed as a leader of the first order today, as his fury and threats of "butt kicking" finally stopped the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
It had been believed that the scientific community and deep water oil experts would be the only source of a solution to the oil crisis that has been ongoing since the 20th April. With time running out before more oil spilled into the water, Obama made his move.
The President's timely intervention involving bold statements, speeches and grandstanding have dramatically proved successful, where 'Top Hats', 'Caps' and golf balls have failed. Experts are at a loss to explain how Obama's clever rhetoric solved the crisis, with camera footage at the well showing the oil flowing at an increasing rate back into the pipe.
Commentators on both sides of the Atlantic were stunned, as thousands of seabirds caked in oil miraculously took flight once more, as Obama aimed his well worded invective at the BP Executives. With the situation improving rapidly throughout the day with each of his pithy utterances, Obama made a final speech to Congress. His pauses for emphasis and linguistic nuance had the Nation gripped. Witnesses stood in awe as with each well pronounced, crafted sentence, the tides of oil heading for the beaches retreated and remarkably the sun shone on an otherwise overcast day.
Before sunset Obama headed for the Gulf of Mexico, the scene of his greatest triumph. He addressed an assembled crowd chanting ‘Yes we can! Yes we can!’, before walking from the beach onto the ocean, across the water and towards the oil field.
