White House hits BP CEO for yacht trip while Obama golfs

White House hits BP CEO for yacht trip while Obama golfs

President Obama takes a swing during one of the 38 games of
golf he has played, as of June, 15 2010, since his presidency began.

Even as his administration criticized BP CEO Tony Hayward
for taking time off during the Gulf Coast oil spill crisis,
President Obama spent some time golfing for several hours
Saturday afternoon at Andrews Air Force Base.

The night before that, the president attended a Washington Nationals baseball game and, according to pool reports, sang
“Take Me Out to the Ballgame” before leaving early.

Hayward, meanwhile, watched his 52-foot yacht off the coast
of England and enjoyed “some rare private time with his son,”
a BP spokesperson told The New York Times.

In an interview with ABC that aired today, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel wasn’t having any of it. The boating trip,
that is.

“I think we can all conclude that Tony Hayward is not going to have
a second career in PR consulting,” Emanuel said on “This Week.”

He went on to describe the yacht trip as “part of a long line of PR gaffes and mistakes” committed by BP, whose chairman recently spoke of the company’s concern for “the small people.”

Emanuel then took aim at the Republican party, saying it would be “dangerous” if the GOP gained power in Washington.

“They see the aggrieved party here as BP, not the fishermen,”
he said of Republicans.

But President Obama has been no stranger to criticism for his own handling of the oil spill, which has now persisted for over sixty days.

His schedule since the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig
has included other trips to the golf course, a night of fun with a
Beatles legend, and a picnic.

The president even enjoyed private time with rock star Bono on April 30, just ten days after the blast killed several workers on the rig.
