The Republican National Committee is taking a jab at President Obama in a new interactive website that lets readers keep track of the administration actions that have most offended them during the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis.
On the website "Golf or Gulf," released Monday, the RNC lists 13 drag and drop items articulating administration actions and asks, "Which 5 of the President's leisure activities or missteps during this environmental disaster have made you the most angry?"
Complete with animation of gushing oil, the website allows people to create their lists and send them to friends.
"President Obama's frustrating tendency to hit the links rather than devote his undivided attention to providing a solution to the worst ecological disaster in American history represents an unacceptable lack of seriousness and focus," RNC Chairman Michael Steele said in a press statement.
"While communities along the Gulf Coast are reeling from the devastating economic and environmental impact of the ongoing spill, it is beyond offensive that this president would even think of scheduling a tee time. How much further out of touch can President Obama get?" asks Steele.
The RNC's dig came the same day the White House announced the administration would impose a new oil moratorium after a federal judge rejected a previous effort, and as residents in the region facing loss of their livelihoods vented their frustrations to a national commission organized by Obama to look at the cause and effect of the disaster.
