    What's the news coming out of Grand Isle, Louisiana?

    For days there have been about 12 BP workers each day cleaning up the beach.

    All of a sudden BP busses in 300-500 people- gives them t-shirts- and pants- and shovels

    can you imagine the coincidence involved when the president just happened to show up on that stretch of beach on exactly that day

    and the coincidence that they quit work after the president left- BP said it was because of the long hours in the hot sun.

    they were paid 12 bucks an hour


    and to think- I never believed in coincidences before- and here is two in 1 day

    Here, your friendly neighborhood mod got your link for you.

    It pisses me off that I'm not on a sandy beach making $12 an hour. Where do I sign up?

    I bet each person bused in was unemployed, American and forced to sign a covenant not to sue BP for illness or injury suffered as a result of the clean up effort.

    ARREST TONY HAYWORTH NOW.

    So you're saying BP used these people for a photo op/public relations scam?

    Why do you idiots always insert Bush in the equation?

    But lets look at both situations Katrina and the current oil leak.

    After Katrina, Bush was on site four days after the fact, the reason he wasn't there sooner was because he did not want to disrupt rescue and relief efforts.

    After the Gulf oil leak it took Obama almost two weeks to grace Louisiana with his presence. And it should be noted that his visit would not have hampered any type of relief or rescue efforts.

    In two days Bush had organized a task force to coordinate a federal response.

    It took Obama almost two weeks to appoint Adm. Thad Allen to direct the Gulf of Mexico oil leak response.
