PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's two U.S. senators disagree on
how President Barack Obama should handle the Gulf of Mexico oil
spill.

Sen. Bill Nelson defended fellow Democrat Obama again criticism
by Republican George LeMieux in Pensacola on Monday as the
president arrived on the Gulf Coast for a two-day visit.

At a similar news conference June 5, LeMieux said Obama
shouldn't fly in for a few hours but should stay on to manage the
spill situation.

Nelson said it's No. 1 on Obama's agenda but as leader of the
Free World he's got other things to worry about such as
Afghanistan, the economy and energy legislation.

Back in Pensacola later Monday, LeMieux said Obama's visit was
"a good start." He is to meet with Obama before the president
departs Tuesday.
