    So in the 2 months since the Oil spill started I have heard dozens of Democrat talking heads, and Obama himself use the Excuse that BP lied about how bad the spill was when confronted about the less than speedy government response to the spill. Obama cited that as his reason for not accepting the help of the dutch and a couple other nations that offered help. He said BP said we didn't need them.

    Now why is this Excuse so lame? Well Because Obama is a Liberal Democrat, and for years they have told us how Evil and Greedy Cooperation's are, and How Oil companies are the biggest example of that.

    So when I hear Obama or some Democrat talking head acknowledge that the Government response has indeed be very poor but it is not Obama's fault because "BP lied". I want to reach through the TV and smack them. It is not like Obama had any reason to Trust BP, Exxon was not exactly honest and cooperative during the Valdez Clean up, why would you think BP is going to be this time?

    Why in the hell would you trust them? Why would you put the fate of the gulf, and millions of peoples lively-hoods in the hands of the CEO of an evil, greedy profit driven cooperation by simply taking them at their word, and not even meeting in person with them for almost 2 months?

    Cmon you are gonna have to do better than that BS excuse, Besides that excuse does not explain why Obama has still not accepted the help of the Nations and companies who are offering, and still appears to be focused on assigning blame and getting compensation when the damn leak is still going.

    a+ to Obama for apparently taking BP's word for it and allowing this disaster to be worse then it has to.

    BP was a huge 0bama contributor. They were buds.


    You trust what your friends are telling you.

    Also, 0bama seems to want the crisis rather than a solution. As usual, he gets to have it three different ways. And no matter which way he gets it, he has no responsibility for it going wrong, but credit if it goes right.

    contributions were in the form of bundled pac money.

    0bama got 77,000 as a Senator and his campaign got 3.5 million from BP pacs.

    Thanks for the information..

    So....BP and its employees gave $3.5 mil over TWENTY years to ALL candidates

    That is pretty impressive......whats that $175K a year?
    I see where you are so concerned

    And Obama received $77K over five years....a whopping $15K per year

    Damn...you really got the guy by the balls on this one

    I read that as the amount of cash he got, not the amount BP gave all over.

    "The lamest Escuse ever, Yet people are buying it. " Uh dude, not for nuttin, but you seem to have a history now for screwing up your thread titles. Damn.

    At least you didn't try to call SOMEONE else an idiot in this thread. :cool: Technically this mistake isn't ironic so at least you got that.
