Obama Takes Break From Campaigning… Visits Oil Slick Disaster 12 Days Late
12 days after the explosion, Barack Obama will visit the disaster zone today.
After 12 days of campaigning against the Arizona immigration law and Wall Street bankers while pushing his next big government takeovers in energy and banking, Barack Obama finally decided to visit the oil slick disaster zone today.
Doug Ross posted President Obama’s activities the last 12 days while the oil slick grew to over 1,000 square kilometers. The President is finally visiting the disaster zone today.
