    While Oil Slick Spread, Interior Department Chief of Staff Rafted with Wife on "Work-Focused" Trip in Grand Canyon

    While Oil Slick Spread, Interior Department Chief of Staff Rafted with Wife on "Work-Focused" Trip in Grand Canyon - Political Punch

    Though his agency was charged with coordinating the federal response to the major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Department of the Interior chief of staff Tom Strickland was in the Grand Canyon with his wife last week participating in activities that included white-water rafting, ABC News has learned.

    Other leaders of the Interior Department were focused on the Gulf, joined by other agencies and literally thousands of other employees. But Strickland’s participation in a trip that administration officials insisted was “work-focused” raised eyebrows among other Obama administration officials and even within even his own department, sources told ABC News.


    I think we found Obama's Michael “Heckuva job, Brownie” Brown..

    Do we actually think that this really had any impact of the government's response to the incident? I would wager that it did not.

    That when the leader of your company for example cares more about his trips than making a profit, it's going to eventually bite you in the ass...

    So is it impossible to go on a trip and care about making a profit at the same time?

    Not when the poop's hitting the fan...



    I've returned from vacations in france because of emergencies at my company.... Surely not as big an emergency as an oil spill that's going to devastate the gulf coast.... but something slightly smaller.

    Well, I do not run a company, but for something as big and cumbersome as the American government, it seems that a department can function even if its head is not there in person. Granted, who is to say that he was not on the phone constantly helping to delegate to his senior staff (as he should be doing in theory)?

    Uhm, if he is not needed to be there during this disaster, why do we need him at all?

    Lets not even get into tax dollars paying for a rafting trip for him and his wife.....


    This sort of shennenigans leads me to speculate that the Intierior dept's ship aint sailing right.
