    JACKSON, Miss. -- Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour on Friday skipped meeting with President Barack Obama in Louisiana about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Barbour spokesman Laura Hipp says the governor was in New York, where he met Thursday with bond rating agencies. Barbour will attend the annual Mississippi picnic in New York's Central Park on Saturday.
    The governors of Louisiana, Alabama and Florida all met with Obama Friday in Louisiana.
    The first oil from a ruptured underwater well reached a Mississippi barrier island Tuesday.
    This was the second time in a row for Barbour to skip meeting in person with the president about the oil spill. On May 28, Barbour instead attended a business groundbreaking in Mississippi.

    So?

    Obama snubs people all the time. I'm waiting for the public ridiculing of Barbour to begin as that's how Obama deals with people who cross him.

    I bet the other governors were going "Why didn't I think of that?"

    I'm glad mine didn't. I actually think it's a good idea to take the spill seriously.

    If you say so.

    IMO, he's putting partisan politics over the well being of his state.

    But of course, that is his choice to make.

    An excellent idea. Someone should tell 0bama! he needs to know.

    He spent 40 days golfing and fund raising while everyone else was dealing with it. Now he wants a photo op, they have to drop more important things and be a backdrop to his greatness.
