When President Obama was asked by NBC's Matt Lauer why he had not yet called the CEO of BP about the Gulf oil spill, he said he assumed CEO's just told presidents things they wanted to hear.

Yes indeedee! There was an article on here where McConnell said they wrote the cap and trade bill.
I saw that.
Just “singin’ it as it comes to ‘em”
So much for kick ass. What a girlyman.
Does Gibbs imply that the Board of Directors would act any differently.
Here we go. Just searched it:
That’s going to hurt oversees. A lot of UK press right now about how unhappy they are with Bambro’s attempt to essentially bankrupt them. UK teacher, police and fire retirement funds are dependent on BP.
I know. That was one of the lamest excused I’ver ever seen. So much for “kicking ass”.
It appears like willing collusion to me.
Wow I thought Obama had his boot on BP’s throat, not the BP board...
Sure smells that way, doesn’t it?
Smells that way,looks that way and feels that way.
So much for the boot on the neck of BP ... more like foot in the mouth once again for the O’Admin!
I look forward to the day when it all comes crashing down around them.
Talk to the nujob in Iran, talk to the nutjob in NK, stick up for the dictator in Honduras, hugs and kisses for Chavez, send hitlery to kiss up to the dictator of Ecuador, oh the list goes on.........but no speakee to BeePee.
It/They are folding like the cheap house of cards that we knew they were.
