Upon returning to Washington, D.C. tomorrow night, Obama will make his first Oval Office speech to the nation to address the situation. Obama will begin in Gulfport, Mississippi this morning where he'll meet with local residents before trekking east to the Alabama coast and finish the tour in Pensacola, Florida.
