"Obama Tells Politico the Oil Spill is Like 9-11… Then Goes Golfing for 4 Hours

Barack Obama told The Politico this morning that the Gulf oil spill was like 9-11.

Then he went golfing for 4 hours.

The Hill reported:

President Barack Obama spent four hours on the golf course Sunday in temperatures that peaked in the low 90s.

The White House pool reported that they left Andrews Air Force Base as it started to rain after 4 p.m.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood was among the group golfing with Obama.

I guess they should go down to the Gulf region and stay until the clean-up gets finished?

Thanks Nbey! Beats the heck out of waiting to go down to the Gulf like he did in the beginning, delaying addressing the issue, failing to make sure the man Obama appointed to clean up MMS, Salazar had in fact done his job of cleaning things up before beginning deep water drilling. Sports, dinners and fun seem to be far more important than being fully connected to the greatest environmental tragedy in US history that is going to take years to correct and will be financed directly by US tax payers over those years. BP doesn't have enough money to fix this and it will fall upon our shoulders to to correct if it ever can be.

Obama was holding it when it broke, he ordered drilling without making sure MMS was functioning correctly and without making sure a plan was in place to handle this disaster. Indefensible.

He should be talking to everyone with an idea on how to remove the oil, A tropical depression rolled off the coast of Africa this morning, I know that I'm kooky sully worried about hurricanes, but my husband and myself have relatives in Georgia , Florida, the Carolinas, the thought of that crap getting dumped on my family , the land, the food scares me just as much as a hurricane itself.

Thanks Sully! A non-egotistical move would have been to appeal to all nations to send in their best and most knowledgeable people to formulate a plan .......... since it's been in print one didn't exist and should have as mandated by law already in place.

Should have been a scramble from the beginning and they should have stayed on it like ducks after june-bugs. We should have seen coordinated effort with the US government in charge, but under this regime they only thing they're in charge of is allowing banksters to loot our economy and us.
