Horseshit. One interview and appearance at a parade doesn't take appreciable time; Steve Jobs had a personal life too. Did SJ speaking at Stanford detract from Apples focus? Maybe it did, so great! Apple without any heart is not an Apple I'd want to see.
No, there is no contradiction, unless you want to try a literal, dogmatic, and impossible reading of the way laws work and are applied. There is argument about how far prosecutor discretion can be stretched, that is what there is.
Obama hasn't declared anything to be law.  Law and policy are different things.
