Obama ignores oil spill for five straight radio addresses

For five straight weeks, beginning with the June 26 address and running through the July 24 address given today, Obama has not even mentioned the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that has put 100+ million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, ruining tourism and fishing industries from Lake Charles, Louisiana all the way to Apalachicola, Florida. 

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?

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.
