Gulf oil disaster - President Obama will continue his Gulf Coast visit Tuesday with a stop in Florida's panhandle, where beaches have started to see signs of oil as crude continues to gush from a ruptured deepwater well. Obama, on his fourth trip to the region since oil began spewing from the well in April, is scheduled to return to Washington later Tuesday and address the nation about the situation from the Oval Office. Before that, Obama will give a speech of support for oil-impacted communities and American troops while at Pensacola's Naval Air Station on Tuesday morning, an administration official said. His speeches may come at a crucial time: According to a USA Today/Gallup survey, 71 percent of the public says Obama hasn't been tough enough in dealing with BP.

Markey, a longtime opponent of offshore drilling and vocal critic of BP's response to the oil disaster, told CNN that the purpose of the hearing is to "establish whether or not BP is the rule or the exception" in terms of its ability to respond to a massive oil spill.
