Video: How Obama showed his "singular" focus on the Gulf spill

For those who read yesterday’s Obamateurism of the Day and followed the links, this won’t be new material, but the new presentation is powerful enough to revisit it. Kevin Kristy did the legwork at PolitiPage, at least up to the holiday weekend. While Obama claimed a “singular” focus on the Deepwater Horizon blowout and oil spill in the Gulf since Day 1, the Singular Sensation spent a lot of time at parties, golf courses, and political fundraisers:

Just to remind people of the unofficial count:

  • Two days of media events (White House Correspondents Dinner and a tête a tête with Bono)
  • Three days of fundraising
  • Four commemorations (graduations, Cinco de Mayo, etc)
  • Six days of vacation
  • Six days of campaigning
  • Six sports events
  • Seven days of golf

In comparison, how many days did Obama spend at the Gulf?  Three, during this span of time, and he’s back again today.
