Amazing . . . the STUPIDITY and IGNORANCE of Right Wing Comments that Defend BP's downright criminal negligence . . . . AND blame Obama.

It was Cheney (Mr. Halliburton) and Bush and Phil Graham and McCain who in 2005, and indeed, their entire 2000- 2008 reign gutted the EPA AND other Regulatory Departments.

Geeze! Amazing Stupidity.

I think that this cartoon is simply in bad taste and frankly inane. BP has made, and acknowledged a major set of mistakes, likely not intentional. They have publically on many occasions stated that they will pay for this.

But, Obama's Washington has set a pattern of (un-presidential)behavior of villifying and demonizing one industry after another. His comments about the BP dividends were also inane but perhaps indicative of a real shallowness in his understanding of the world works.

In that climate, who can blame BP for doing a little lobbying and advertising back?

BIG BROTHER OIL doesn't seem to be to worried about how this is totally destroying our shorelines, fishing industry, and ecosystem. A disaster of this magnitude deserve immediate and extreme penalties. I suppose what ever his coming out of that perfume bottle no doubt contains carcinogens.

BP has shown what most big companies will do when caught doing what is wrong! Spin the facts to cover their buts and claim they will do anything to help those they hurt while stalling on implementation. To spend their capital on lobbyist, lawyers and advertising, instead of the environment and the people they are damaging, is an insult to human dignity.
