    (ABC News)- In the wake of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama today summoned a bipartisan group of over 20 senators to the White House to push for energy and climate change legislation.
    But one thing the President did not want to talk about at the meeting was the BP disaster, a Republican source told ABC News. And that, the source said, led to a pointed exchange with GOP senator Lamar Alexander from Tennessee.
    “The priority should be fixing the oil spill,” Alexander told the President, according to the source. “That’s what any meeting about energy should be about.”
    But when Alexander tried to interject the BP leak into the meeting, the source said, the President told the senator, “That’s just your talking point.”
    Retorted Alexander, “No, it’s my opinion.”

    It's already talked about 24/7. Everyone knows we have to stop the gusher, clean up the spill and have more regulations on big oil.

    Lamar Alexander is one big talking point. Nobody wants to listen to his diversionary neocon speak.

    The fact that we elected a Marxist Ideologue like Obama as President says we are a truly fucked up nation.

    You know it was gov. regulations and inspectors masturbating in front of computers that caused this (forcing deep water drilling and lack of inspections) and talking about this would place the blame right on big government. Obagolf needs to pass his crap and tax and those nasty "neocon" talking points won't help.
