Any liberals answering, please don’t take this question to the heart.
Obama stated he has been fighting since day 1.
Obama meant he was fighting for his political career instead of the oil spill.
I think the reason that Obama is spending more time on the golf course is that it is making him feel better to be able to bash SOMETHING with a stick. After all, he is SO over having to follow our laws in dealing with BP…when all he really wants to do is beat those b***d’s with a stick until they get rid of all that oil.
What’s he suppose to do about it? How is having him on the gulf coast going to help the situation? An occasional visit might make people feel better, but it causes lot’s of money, and it clogs up traffic. Presidents don’t have any special ability to stop oil leaks or clean up beaches.
Because then you would complain about the price of jet fuel and say it’s just a photo op. Exactly how much brush was on Bush’s ranch that he spent 430 days as President clearing it.
Same reason George Bush spent most of his time in Crawford, Texas on vacation.
“Bush on track to become the vacation president,” Julie Mason headlined in the August 9, 2007, edition of the Houston Chronicle:
“On Thursday, Bush left for a weekend in Kennebunkport, Maine, and his family’s summer compound, Walker’s Point. On Monday, he heads to his Crawford retreat, where he has spent all or part of 418 days of his presidency, according to Mark Knoller, a CBS News White House correspondent and meticulous record-keeper.
“…The presidential vacation-time record holder is the late Ronald Reagan, who tallied 436 days in his two terms. At 418 days, and with 17 months to go in his presidency, Bush is going to beat that easily.”
“I guess you could look at it this way — the more he’s on vacation, the less damage he can do to the country,” Pam Spaulding wrote August 12, 2007.
“Bush has spent more than a year of his presidency” at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. On August 19, 2005, “he broke Ronald Reagan’s record of 335 days for America’s most vacationed president and went on to take the longest presidential vacation in 36 years,” Dale McFeatters wrote August 8, 2006, in a ScrippsNews editorial.
“Everyone deserves a vacation. I myself took two weeks off in July,” Ann Sullivan wrote August 10, 2006, in The Ithica Journal. “Still, there is a time and place for everything. George Bush is spending at least 10 days in Crawford, clearing brush and riding his bike while the Middle East is in flames and American service men struggle to quell a civil war in Iraq. Even Tony Blair postponed his August vacation to work for a settlement in the Middle East. What kind of a dilettante do we have (when he chooses to be) in the White House?”
August 3: “Bush gets a ‘look-see’ at the border before starting summer break,” Associated Press.
August 4: “Bush Has Short Vacation Reading List,” Washington Post.
August 8: “Olbermann Frets over Bush’s Vacation, Compares Bush to Neville Chamberlain,” NewsBusters.” wiki
