"President Obama Doesn't Care About Bayou People?"

OUCH. That from Charles Blow of the New York Times.

Barack Obama going to California for fundraisers and then going to son of J. Paul Getty's home for a fundraiser in San Francisco, California was just a NO-NO in my book. While the Gulf Coast is bleeding and BP continues to LIE, Obama was in California away from it all.

I am sorry, he deserves to get blasted. I know that raising money is critical but in the middle of a massive catastrophe, the American Public does not want to see you raising money, yet alone at a former OIL BARON son's home in California.

Barack Obama is playing catch up. That is catch up in perception, but as I wrote earlier, "Did the perception train leave on the Obama White House? Were they just too slow to actually get it?" All I can write is that it is going to be a long, hot summer.
