    Well, others have been complaining that BP had to put 20 billion in the kitty for those that have been hurt through their negligence...

    I posted at least twice on the various threads on this, that Obama DID NOT FORCE BP to put this money in the kitty....that this was probably BP's PR idea in the first place....

    And low and behold, last night, less than a week from Obama's statement of the BP 20 billion kitty....

    I see, a BP ad on tv...with a black man talking all about BP putting this money in the kitty to HELP YOU, of the gulf region, through this unfortunate situation....that THEY ARE THERE FOR YOU....

    this was ALL BP'S idea, and for PR purposes....

    NO ONE FORCED bp to do this with Obama....as republicans are crying a river about....

    this was what BP's PR team TOLD them to do...and NOW, just 5 days later they have an entire ad campaign running, that uses this for their benefit.

    It takes much longer than 5 days to create an ad for television...I was in the marketing business so I know this as FACT.....

    This means that BP had been working on this ad quite a bit, BEFORE Obama's announcement on this....it means it was BP's idea and that no one at BP was FORCED to do such.

    i agree that this was BP's idea all along, so i guess that means that obama shouldn't get any credit for this despite the protestations of his partisans to the contrary.

    remind me again of what a great job he's doing, please. :)

    Del, I have never said Obama FORCED them to do this nor that obama was FASCIST in doing so....but the right wing was stuck on this.....and some like Chris on the left were.

    As far as Obama's job....McCain/Palin.... would have been NO BETTER imho....Hillary, is another story....she could have been better than the 2 choices on election day.

    I was channel surfing last week and caught Mike Huckabee saying on his TV show that $20 billion was probably not going to be enough. It's actually $5 billion each year for 4 years. I agree. Way to go, Obama. He just wanted to try to look good. I guess Barack is so used to taking bribes that he didn't think about what might go wrong. And if the Federal Government had just waited and taken BP to court, the $20 billion would've been a nice little down payment. Can we impeach Obama now?

    Fox news reports that BP does business with Iran. Screw BP and their 20 billion dollars and screw you know who too.

    "Tomorrow, I will meet with the chairman of BP and inform him that he is to set aside whatever resources are required to compensate the workers and business owners who have been harmed as a result of his company’s recklessness.

    And this fund will not be controlled by BP. In order to ensure that all legitimate claims are paid out in a fair and timely manner, the account must and will be administered by an independent third party." Barack Obama

    Transcript: Obama’s oil speech from Oval Office – Central Florida Political Pulse – Orlando Sentinel


    So, these words were just hype for the masses and the suit is still empty? So who's calling the shots in this crisis.. Obama or BP?
