Obama tours Alabama's Gulf Coast

THEODORE, AL (WBRC) - On a visit to the Alabama coast today, President Barack Obama said his administration will do everything it can to make sure coastal communities get back on their feet after the gulf oil spill. It has become the worse environmental disaster in the US history. President Obama said he is gathering facts and stories so the White House will be ready to press BP on the need to deal fairly and promptly with people and businesses. The White House said BP appears willing to set up a massive compensation fund for victims.
