-- CEO Tony Hayward getting slammed by the media for tooling around -- -- got over the weekend but the press didn't really say much about President Obama taking time off for golf.
Apparently the toughest job in the world has its perks in this case -- media willing to look the other way but our next -- Never averts his eyes he is always watching and we welcome back and her bright part founder of big government dot com and bright part.
Dot com so are you surprised that the president got a pass here in Hayward didn't.
I'm not surprised at all it is interesting because the media is now on watch by the American people there were some any standards that were created during the Bush Administration.
Angles to attack that the American president I remember being -- myself they're really going to get angry at this -- for clearing brush.
On -- Crawford Ranch.
That they were upset with him when he would ride is motor bike you know his is.
His his mountain bicycle too much mean those -- things to keep him in physically good shape.
What what Barack Obama is doing is doing things that are leisure.
And it's the appearance that he's you know in a leisure mindset not a fixing the biggest.
You know disaster of our -- -- that's what the problem is here in other -- -- -- -- -- -- because he wasn't only playing golf -- -- we also pictures of them at the national.
Baseball game where he was actually rooting for the White Sox he's at a White Sox had a I you know -- it is it is a tremendous saves that I got a job that we understand why wanna get away but on the other hand.
It's one of those -- there are times when there's a crisis when you cancel these these other activities right.
Oh I think so I mean look the last thing I want to get into -- what I think anybody that is a critic of the president.
Is to get into that deep ball position of the left was and if if the president says.
Let's go to the right we say let's go to the left but there are certain standards that they created and Katrina is almost the paradigm.
Of the standard in which they were say in the bush.
Five days into Katrina wasn't bear he wasn't doing enough and so.
For Barack Obama who -- on the day that he took office that that he will never let down the goal again.
For him to be golf in as much as he is and could it be experiencing so many leisure activities seems like a snob.
To them and on top of how -- treated Nashville.
Like it wasn't a disaster it almost seems like he has -- -- where those states in that part of the country.
I did that don't support them you know I I also want.
Or whether or not he was so accustomed to the free ride that he got if the year when he was campaigning and then the first year after he became president maybe.
He just got used to that he thought he can get away -- that week we talked earlier about how much money they got from BP.
The president's spokesman Ben -- bolts -- told Politico President Obama didn't accept a dime from corporate -- which is which is patently untrue and we have evidence of that but.
He's so accustomed to the president -- to the press giving him a pass that he thinks he can get away when this stuff.
And I'm accustomed to the press get -- letting him get away with that but I -- at the very beginning of this I was asked to write a piece for -- well.
Asking me if this was going to be.
Obama's Katrina said there's no way can be Obama's Katrina.
Because that was a media.
Situation that was does the media decided it was gonna take down George Bush.
And allow for that event to take its course and the press is not against Barack Obama but the thing that I'm finding that went against my prediction.
Is that there are people like Maureen Dowd and even Bill Maher better some of these early adapters who are starting to attack -- and I'm realizing.
Not just that they're realizing that he's not all that they built him up to be but these people have to have.
Careers and two years what I -- look clueless exactly and they cannot ignore their customers because their customers are beginning to say.
Hey you guys are missing all these stories a bipartisan get it.
Well I I want them to continue to ignore -- from a unfortunately so I want them to keep their heads in the sand but I've I've seen.
A sea change a small slight one.
But I noticed in the people are starting to pay attention to these huge gaps a ripple in the ocean Andrew bright -- good to see -- thanks.
