  • If he went down there for 26 hours and actually DID something, there wouldn't be a problem. But he just went so that he could say he went to the gulf. It was pointless and a waste of money. He didn't DO anything, he didn't even go to the GULF!

  • Amen, gertie41!

    So, if it'd been George W. and his daughter, no big deal? But b/c it's Obama, there's got to be an agenda... Stop watching so much f*cking Fox News!

    I hate all this biased crap that goes with being American. Is Canada taking citizenship applications?

  • I still would not go. I'm going to assume they did not go into one of the more oily parts of the region and spit water at each other. I won't even go into Lake Michigan after I contracted strep when I was 14.

  • OKAY...if he stayed a week, you would criticize him for taking too much time to vacation and insist he isn't doing his job. He stays a day but that doesn't make you happy either. This is soooooo lame.
    Anyone want to tell us WHY you don't like him? And his wife? I mean...the real truth?

  • Funny thing is...he didn't ACTUALLY swim in the Gulf...he was in the pristine waters of Alligator point (marked with the "A") which is inland off the Gulf!! LOL  FAIL!!  :o)

  • The WH said he was in "Aligators Point"..the PRESS said the Gulf, its a catchier title..and the point waters lead into the Gulf/

    ***
    But the oil slicked Gulf waters didn't get into Alligator Point!! LOL It would be like saying you went swimming down the Jersey shore/ocean, when you were in Barnegat Bay! LOL :o)
