This weekend, we entered the 9th week of the Gulf oil catastrophe.
Over the last few days, BP CEO Tony Hayward attended a yacht race off the Isle of Wight in which his own luxury yacht took part. It came in fourth. And the lamestream media rained holy hell down on him. "Captain Clueless," screamed the NY Post front page yesterday. And yes, for the newly sidelined CEO of the company that is destroying the Gulf of Mexico, it was hubris run amok. Hayward deserved to be barbequed as an arrogant, out-of-touch jerk.
Also over the weekend, President Obama played two rounds of golf, attended a major league baseball game, and watched hours of World Cup soccer. The response from the lamestream media? Crickets and tumbleweeds.
Message: Hayward is an elite jackass. Obama is an angelic do-gooder.
Actually, both men fall into the first category, and Obama requires an additional adjective: dangerous.
