While Obama Played…

The Daily Caller did all the work here.  They have calculated the number of gallons spilled while Obama was taking care other pressing matters such as his golf game and fund raisers for Barbara Boxer.  

Wasted Barrels are a new measure that we here at The Daily Caller are going to follow from here on during the Gulf spill crisis. Wasted Barrels are barrels of oil that have spilled into the Gulf during the numerous hours of recreational or political activities our President has undertaken since the leak first started. We don’t want to be unfair. The President needs time for rest and relaxation just like anyone else, but President Obama’s actions since this crisis began do not reflect the words that he now espouses. As set forth below, approximately 187,500 barrels of oil, or 7,875,00 gallons, have spilled into the Gulf during the hours that our President has spent recreating. That seems more than a little bit excessive.
