Hello, and welcome to the liveblog of tonight’s Oval Office address from President Obama about the BP Oil Disaster. It’s scheduled for 8pm EDT and should last 18 minutes. We have the live video stream embedded in this post, which should play automatically when the address begins. I’ll provide a real time transcript, and offer some commentary at the end. Discuss the speech in the comments here, and stick around after for more from FDL on the speech.
