But El Presidente hasn't spoken of it in his weekly "fireside chats" since an off-hand mention in the June 19 address.
The question is, why not? Doesn't he care?
Here are the links to the last five transcripts of his radio addresses. I admit that I only briefly scanned them for some mention of the disaster, but I don't see anything.
Am I missing something?
- June 26 - Weekly Address: President Obama Urges Congress to Complete Work on Wall Street Reform Bill
- July 3 - Weekly Address: President Obama Touts Nearly $2 Billion in New Investments to Help Build a Clean Energy Economy
- July 10 - Weekly Address: Another vacation!
- July 17 - Weekly Address: President Obama Says GOP Senate Leadership Choosing to "Filibuster Our Recovery and Obstruct Our Progress"
- July 24 - Weekly Address: President Obama Praises New Wall Street Reform Law; Says GOP Plan Will Take Us Backward
There's really no other commentary necessary from me. If he gave a flying you-know-what to the people of the Gulf Coast and the devastation caused by this event, he'd at least demonstrate its importance by mentioning it in his only direct address to the people of the United States.
He hasn't said a word in more than a month. 'Nuff said.
Gimme some feedback in the comments.
