Rahm Emanuel Criticizes BP CEO for Attending Yacht Race While Obama Golfs

June 20, 2010

Liberal hypocrisy is on full display.  From the American Thinker:

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel laid into BP’s CEO Tony Hayward for going yachting with his son instead of paying attention every minute of the day to the oil spill.

Meanwhile, our president took in a 5 hour round of golf with his vice president. Last Saturday, it was a 4 hour tour of the links.

President Barack Obama hit the golf course Saturday with Vice President Joe Biden.The White House pool report noted that Obama left at about 1 p.m. for the course at Andrews Air Force base, and his golfing parters included White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and David Katz, the energy efficiency campaign manager at the Department of Energy.

Obama left the course shortly before 6 p.m.

What Took So Long?

June 17, 2010

The RNC has released a scathing video showing just where The One’s priorities are.   58 days before meeting w/ BP executives?  Pathetic.  In times like these we need a President, a true leader.  Someone to be proud of and rally behind.  Instead we have a Golfer in Chief and a rampant apologizer.  Someone we’re ashamed of.  The One = The Mistake.

The One: Obama skipped Gulf Memorial for 11 killed to attend Barbara Boxer fundraiser instead

June 12, 2010

Reason #2917 on why The One must go in 2012.  From CNN, hat tip to Gateway Pundit:

 According his official schedule, President Obama did not attend the May 25 memorial service in Jackson, Mississippi for the workers who died in the Deepwater Horizon explosion because he was en route to a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, in San Francisco.

At Thursday’s White House briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked why Obama did not attend the service. The president’s spokesman answered, “I’d have to look at the schedule. I don’t know the answer.”

CNN examined the president’s schedule for that day, and according to it, the president left the White House at 2:55 p.m. EST en route to Andrews Air Force Base for the cross-country flight to the San Francisco fundraiser.

Obama in 2008: My campaign management experience would allow me to handle a Gulf emergency

June 6, 2010

Back in 2008 when Hurricane Gustav was nearing New Orleans, Obama told Anderson Cooper, the Paris Hilton of Television News, that since he ran such a large campaign he could surely respond to a Gulf disaster. Apples to apples, right?  Wrong.  He and his administration have failed at nearly everything they’ve touched.  Cash for Clunkers, job creation, unemployment, you name it.  Hell they can’t even get Queen Elizabeth’s birthday right.  But his biggest failure to date is his lack of leadership during the Gulf Oil Spill.  

From Byron York in the Washington Examiner:

It’s not mentioned much now, but in the late summer of 2008, a major hurricane, Gustav, was in the Gulf of Mexico and headed toward New Orleans, threatening a replay of the disastrous Katrina experience.  On September 1, 2008, Barack Obama, fresh from his Roman-colonnade speech on the final night of the Democratic convention in Denver, talked to CNN’s Anderson Cooper about Gustav and the Gulf.  The question: As president, could he handle an emergency like that?  Obama pointed to the size of his campaign and its multi-million dollar budget as evidence of his executive abilities.  “Our ability to manage large systems and to execute, I think, has been made clear over the last couple of years,” Obama said. That executive ability, he added, “indicates the degree to which we can provide the kinds of support and good service that the American people expect.”
