Comedy gold Sunday morning from Obama (thats when the story was published). Or, should that be, cluelessness, thin skinnedness, and detachedness? Anyhow, via Gateway Pundit, we get a Politicio story, Obama: Gulf spill echoes 9/11
Sounding reflective as he heads into a bruising electoral season, President Barack Obama told POLITICO columnist Roger Simon that the Gulf disaster “echoes 9/11” because it will change the nation’s psyche for years to come.
Obama — facing mounting criticism of his handling of the BP gusher, even from longtime allies — vowed to make a “bold” push for a new energy law even as the calamity continues to unfold. And he said he will use the rest of his presidency to try to put the United States on a course toward a “new way of doing business when it comes to energy.”
“In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11,” the president said in an Oval Office interview on Friday, I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come.”
If you remember, Obamas view of 9/11 was to wonder what made them attack the US, and to be more concerned with civilian deaths in any coming war than the deaths on that day. He hired a Truther and had a religious leader who delivered his famous chickens coming home to roost sermon shortly after. And he is attempting to turn September 11 into a National Day of Service, at least by the swipe of a pen. Remember, though, that Captain KickAss wont rest until the oil spill is contained. Or something
President Barack Obama spent four hours on the golf course Sunday in temperatures that peaked in the low 90s.
Of course, the man has already played way more golf in a bit over one year than Bush 43 ever did over 8 years. Such are his priorities. He likes the trappings of the office, but, actually doing the job? Not so much. Of course, he wont let this crisis go to waste, and push for energy idiocy Tuesday night. Which he will do from the Oval Office, continuing to look aloof and detached. It would make a whole lot more sense, and look better, to do the speech from the Gulf, considering he will spend the night in Pensacola Monday.
