    The Texas-based oil giant’s political action committee made 14 contributions during the month of May, according to a federal campaign report filed Wednesday — 13 to Republicans and one to a Democrat. It was the busiest donation month for Halliburton’s PAC since September 2008.

    Of the 10 current members of Congress who got money from Halliburton in May, seven are on committees with oversight of the oil spill and its aftermath.

    Hey, weren't Republicans whining they don't have any power?

    Let me say this again:

    And only one Democrat received money.

    There are plenty to choose from.

    Of course, the could be busy.

    Inventing computers.

    Discovering new medicines.

    Designing alternate energy methods.

    Designing new nuclear reactors.

    Republicans are known for, well, whatever it is, it's not much.

    But I thought Mr Obama was going to change the way things were done in DC?

    Seems as though he needs some serious help doing so. Of course he also needs some serious help to get this mess cleaned up.

    The fact the Bush and the Republicans created a sort of "shadow" budget by leaving out two wars and adding in what they thought would be the benefits of their tax cut, and then Obama made a truly honest budget is an enormous accomplishment.

    All this Republican screaming and what are they screaming at? The truth. Bush kept it hidden with what was basically a bold faced lie directly to the American people.

    It's a shame really, that someone as honest as Obama is being criticized by a political party as odious as the Conservative Confederate Republican Party of Teabags. Republicans want to believe that Bush's dishonest budget was "real" and Obama's "honest" budget is a lie. What Obama did was "expose" that lie, and they are so blinded by ideology, they can't even see it.
