From Day 1, Obama Was Focused on Getting Barbara Boxer Re-Elected

At a press briefing on Thursday, Press Sec Robert Gibbs was asked why President Obama didn’t attend the memorial service on May 25 for workers who were killed in the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion:

(CNN) – According his official schedule, President Obama did not attend the May 25 memorial service in Jackson, Mississippi for the workers who died in the Deepwater Horizon explosion because he was en route to a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, in San Francisco.

Oh well, why should Obama have gone to the memorial service when the whole thing was Bush’s fault anyway, whereas Barbara Boxer is going to help eliminate national security threats by taxing us for every time we exhale?
