This article sums the incoming continued devastation of the oil spill.
It is unnerving to watch this president and his wife go about the social perks of being First Couple. The soirees are over the top with splendor and all the cool kids come. The Washington press swoons and finds it so charming that this couple 'entertains'. How sad. The country is in a terrible state, unemployment is about 10%, we have a huge natural disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, yet these two party on. THIS article speaks to the disconnect.
Perception is everything in politics.
This president gives an interview to an online publication and has the nerve to call the oil spill comparable to 9/11/01. Then, he traipses out to play golf. As he stated in the interview:"In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11 . . . I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come," Mr. Obama said in an Oval Office interview Friday
Any president who fails to see the vulgar implications of partying hearty while millions of American citizens are seeing their already-imperiled livelihoods go completely kaput with every day of gushing crude has lost touch with reality.
The election in November is critical to stop the arrogance and destruction to the fabric of our country. In the same article where he compares the reaction to emotions of 9/11/01 to an oil spill in the Gulf, Obama states:
“I am spending some time thinking about 2010 because, obviously, my ability to get things done on behalf of the American people depends on a Congress that is willing to cooperate,” he said.
I see November from my house.
