Talk about timing... Obama calls Charlie talk about the oil spill

And Governors Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Rick Perry of Texas, Bob Riley of Arkansas, and Haley Barbour of Mississippi.

The White House says he called the governors of the Gulf Coast states "to discuss the BP oil spill situation and assure the Governors that the administration will continue to use every single available resource at our disposal in the response efforts. The President described the range of Federal actions that are underway to respond to the spill and stressed the importance of maintaining close coordination with the Governors as this event continues to evolve.
