  • Obama Compares Oil Spill to 9/11

    6/14/2010 5:00:37 PM Posted by Evan Gassman

    Ahead of another visit to the gulf and his first address from the oval office, President Obama said today that the British Petroleum oil spill was similar to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

    Chalk this up as yet another Presidential gaffe.

    Observers were quick to comment that the President was, “off base.” Others questioned why the President chose the 9/11 terrorist attacks and not Hurricane Katrina, which seems like a somewhat logical comparison.

    British Petroleum has become the butt of the joke so to speak, given their perceived lack of a logical response:

    But the President is not getting off easy either. The President has an abysmal -18 Approval Index Rating, according to Rasmussen Reports.

    Perhaps the President will take a moment of his time tomorrow night during his address to the nation from the Oval Office to apologize to the 9/11 victims and their families for making this offensive comparison. Until then, however, this gaffe is unfortunate to say the least.
