Captain Kickass Discovers More Gulf States

With no end in sight and his poll numbers in free fall, America's superhero, Captain Kickass, has decided to take his weak photo-op tour to more Gulf states affected by Obamatrina, a noble gesture considering there's a strong possibility he may miss a few live minutes of a possible Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Who said this man isn't sacrificing for us?
Under fire for his handling of the oil-spill crisis, President Obama is returning to the Gulf Coast for an update on the disaster.

The White House said yesterday that Obama will travel next Monday and Tuesday to Mississippi, Alabama and Florida -- three states whose shores and economies are being affected by the worst environmental catastrophe in US history.

The trip will be Obama's fourth to the region since the deep-sea leak began April 20 with the explosion of an oil rig leased by BP.

Obama's extended stay in the region comes as a poll earlier this week found that a majority of Americans believe his handling of the crisis has been even more bungling than President George W. Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The ABC News/Washington Post survey showed that 69 percent of voters disapproved of the White House's handling of the oil spill, compared with 62 percent who gave thumbs-down during the aftermath of Katrina.
Let's hope by next week our Golfer-in-Chief finds a moment to chat with BP's CEO.
