PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Florida's two U.S. senators disagree on
how President Barack Obama should handle the Gulf of Mexico oil
      Sen. Bill Nelson defended fellow Democrat Obama again criticism
by Republican George LeMieux during a news conference in Pensacola
on Monday as the president arrived on the Gulf Coast for a two-day,
three-state visit.
      At a similar news conference June 5, LeMieux said Obama
shouldn't come down for just a few hours but should stay on the
Gulf Coast to manage the situation until the spill is stopped.
      Nelson said it's No. 1 on Obama's agenda but as leader of the
nation and Free World he's got other things to worry about such as
Afghanistan, the economy, implementing the new health care law and
energy legislation.
