Obama's thin veneer of caring about the oil spill
Here's how Chairman Zero demonstrates his administration's "singular focus" on the 45 day-old Gulf oil spill as documented by Hotair...
•Two days of media events (White House Correspondents Dinner and a tête a tête with Bono)
•Three days of fundraising
•Four commemorations (graduations, Cinco de Mayo, etc)
•Six days of vacation
•Six days of campaigning
•Six sports events
•Seven days of golf
For those of you who attended dreadful government schools and have trouble with simple math, that's 34 days out of 45 that Obama has occupied himself with trivialities unassociated with leadership of a country in crisis.
Clearly this oil spill is a nuisance to The One. That it is affecting southern, red states makes appearing to care still more difficult for an arugula munching, north-eastern elitist who detests us uneducated, inbred, gun-toting yokels down here. If this spill threatened Martha's Vineyard, San Francisco Bay, or Seattle(all hotbeds of elitist progressivism), FEMA and every other federal resource would be tripping all over each other to solve the leaking problem and clean up the spill. All Obama can muster the desire to do for the conservative southern states is send Eric Holder to promise law suits against BP....but even that's not about helping the Gulf-coast states, it's about grabbing money for the federal government from BP under the guise of "punishment".
