    Gulf officials think that Obama, who is off to Maine this weekend for a short pre-vacation before a longer one likely in Martha's Vineyard, would help them with their sales bid to the rest of the nation. They say pictures of Obama and his family, beamed around the world through the huge White House press corps, would be much better than his brief visits to the oil spill site and meeting with local residents. Instead, a vacation would prove that the beaches are open for business.

    He sure could bring a lot of money to the area if he vacationed in the Gulf... To bad he won't do what he is asking other Americans to do.

    Not only would it bring money to the region, but I think it would boost his approval rating.

    Doubtful, the people here would still find fault with him..."He's so phony, he's only doing it for votes!".

    We all know that the people who post here and hate him, will NEVER like him no matter what he does. Everything he does will always be wrong to the far right (which is what the people of this site are). So trying to appease you and what you think he should do is impossible.

    Why should he go to the Gulf Coast?

    There is too much oil there

    Thank GOD maine's coast doesn't have any oil.

    The plan is afoot to put enormous windmills in the Gulf of Maine.

    I'm attending seminars (on NFP managament, FWIW) this summer with some of the administrators of that grand scheme.

    We're told that when online these winddrive generators will be able to provide energy enough for every home in New England.

    I'll believe it when I see it, of course.

    Me?

    I'm still waiting for that New England Interstate Monorail to go up ...mag lev, of course!

    Oops, my bad. Just glanced at first and thought it said New England or the Golf Course?

    Isn't that why he and just about every politician do what they do? For the votes? Personally, I would like for once, for him to lead by example by bringing his family down to the Gulf Coast for a vacation. Showing the rest of the country that the Gulf is still a great place to visit regardless of the oil spill.

    Not that it matters to you, but I am not 'far right'. And I would give him some kudos for family vacation photo-ops from the Gulf Coast.

    But those aren't the votes he's trying to get, right?
