WASHINGTON (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Republican party leaders are seizing on President Obama's admission that he hasn't spoken directly with the head of BP about the oil spill.
The President told NBC he hasn't spoken with CEO Tony Hayward because Hayward would only tell him what he wants to hear.
He has since been criticized by Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, former Republican VP Candidate Sarah Palin and now Indiana Sixth District Congressman Mike Pence.
Pence says, “What we're seeing truly is an administration without leadership. The reality is that the news that yesterday, the president had not even spoken on the phone with the CEO of BP in 50 days following the disaster in the Gulf is emblematic of the disconnect between the expectations of the American people and this administration.”
President Obama has been criticized by both parties as seeming too detached from the spill.
