Rahm Emanuel recently criticized BP for poor PR when the BP CEO went for a little yacht ride. I agree that that does look pretty bad when we are dealing with this kind of crisis, but why the hell is ANYONE in this administration in a position to criticize BP for a yacht trip when they’ve been partying and playing golf as if there is no national crisis at hand? Just look at the things I listed in my blog post “Obama’s Parties”, which lists all of Obama’s celebrations since this crisis began. He’s also played numerous golf games. I don’t mind the President playing golf and having parties, but at a time like this it is just inappropriate. Not only is it obvious that he does not have any type of plan to resolve this situation, but it seems as if he doesn’t even care. All of these parties and golf games wouldn’t be such a priority if solving the oil spill crisis was a priority. And I think it’s much worse PR that the President will party and play golf during this crisis while his administration will criticize BP for a yacht ride.
