    Abhorrent? I don't think I'd use that strong of a word. Stupid? Seems to me. I gather--at the time of his departure--that he was not sure of the level of seriousness. He took the risk, and it backfired.

    Not sure why you think the trip was "supposed?" The article clearly explains the intent of his trip. Why do you doubt this?


    Look, what I really think is this guy is a hammer. Who should be fired. His lack of interest in his job seems proven here, and if it turns out, he's the one responsible for making sure the booms were available. he needs to be fired.

    Come on, Rev, stop posting all these weak hit-jobs... you're starting to come off like one of the far-righties around here...



    from my article...


    The Stricklands departed for the Grand Canyon three days after the leaks in the Deepwater Horizon pipeline were discovered.



    The fact you are making this a left right thing is idiotic.


    I actually respected this dood for going after ACTUAL criminals in colorado for gun crimes. He wasn't one of those douches that wanted to restrict 2nd amendment freedoms, but rather punish actual criminals...


    That said, He's really lost it here, and his poor judgement is whats in question, not his party....


    So while the mouth foaming continues by you and your ilk, the facts of who's being hyper-partisan and who isn't is apparent.

    Looks like his colleagues in the Dept. of Interior disagree with you:

    One government official, asking for anonymity because of the political sensitivities involved, told ABC News that some Interior Department employees thought it was “irresponsible” for Strickland to have gone on the trip, given the crisis in the Gulf, which was fully apparent at the time he departed for the Grand Canyon.

    I'm wondering...what urgent and pressing business was occurring at the Grand Canyon that was so important for such a trip? Anyone know?

    According to the article, they were there to discuss items on national importance like the future of the humpback chub.

    Who said it was ungent and pressing?
    It was a planned trip.

    An administration source says that Strickland’s trip to the Grand Canyon was work-focused. He was with the director of the National Park Service, Jonathan Jarvis, and Grand Canyon National Park Superintendant Steve Martin, the source said, and they discussed matters such as river flows, beach erosion, humpback chub, tamarisk control, overflights, safety, motor boats, and wilderness management.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    If it wasn't urgent or pressing, all the more reason for him to postpone it.

    Hmm... common sense lacking apparently.

    Planned trip of no significant importance... or postpone and attend to a growing national oil spill disaster off the Louisiana coast. Yeah... the planned BS trip to the Grand Canyon seems MUCH more important. I mean, all those filght changes and what not... what a hassle right?

    Partisan thinking, not seem to be lacking apparently.
