A "pristine beach" politician-invitation would be more convincing (I would think), if the "come on down" politicians were media-presented in swim trunks, swimming in the pristine-looking beach.

If they did not immediately experience skin and soft-tissue chemical burns--or lung/respiratory problems--then perhaps their PR stunt would appear less superficial.

Yeah! Let's invite all the politicians and BP executives to take their vacations all along the gulf coast. What about our government management people who were in charge of overseeing this part of the industry. They can just drink from the gulf waters.

Notice the continued religious fanaticism in which the fright wing continues to denigrate Obama and his response to this environmental disaster, along with anyone who supports him. BP assured us that drilling that deep was safe. They even sold us on their snake-oil response plan. Drill baby, drill! Now that BPs greed has turned to spill baby, spill. Suddenly, their so-called disaster response plan, when put into action, is not working out so well.. Now the Republicans are desperate in their attempts to try and pin this on Obama. After all, the Republicans lost on the stimulus plan and health care. Not only did their presidential candidate McCain underestimate his superior intelligence, the entire Party has failed to match wits with him. Even when the Republicans thought that they could gang up on Obama on healthcare, he not only schooled them, but embarrassed the Republicans on national TV. healthcare turned out to be the Republican's Waterloo!

So, why are the Republicans so desperate to blame this oil spill and cleanup on Obama??? Because they are desperate to erase the bad memory of Bush's complete and utter failures in the Gulf Coast region after Hurricane Katrina.

As the midterms approach, the Republicans realize that they have done nothing for America! While Obama can tout his accomplishments on the stimulus, Iraq troop withdrawal, job creation, infrastructure improvements, nuclear proliferation, and health care reform (to name a few), the Republicans have been unsuccessful in their holy crusade to vilify and pin something on Obama. And just like the attempts before to make him look bad, the attempt to blame Obama for BPs mess and responsibility for cleanup will fail as well. This will further erode what little credibility, if any, the Republicans have left, and will hurt them badly in the mid term elections this fall.

You're really confusing that golf part with G.W.'s supreme sacrifice to supposedly give up GOLF for soldiers in IRAQ, only to be photographed 2 months later playing GOLF by the Associated press:


Obama's been to the Gulf region how many times now??? the best Bush could do was manage a fly-by in AF1.

And the doors were wide-open and broadcast on C-SPAN for the healthcare negotiations. After the asswhooping the Republicans received after Obama made them look like imbeciles to the American people, it is unlikely the Republicans will ever try to debate him again in a televised session.

morden--we know that you are the conservaturds writer so get a life.what planet are you on to say doors were open on health care and cspan showed it?you are reading obama promises and not reality.obama closed doors on health care and behind them cut deals with senators which were bribery.see louisiana and nebraska if you doubt this.you need to realise that the main stream media is controlled by white house and if you believe what they say you only get their picture of things.
