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.

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.
