Posted on 06/16/2010 9:15:37 AM PDT by Nachum
The White House has sent out the list of attendees for the president's meeting with BP executives. Other than the president and vice president, the people from the administration were: energy/climate advisor Carol Browner, economics adviser Larry Summers, and the domestic policy adviser Melody Barnes. Along with those three officials were three lawyers: White House counsel Robert Bauer, White House lawyer Don Verrilli, and Tom Perrelli, the number-three official in the Justice Department.
Adm. Thad Allen also attended. Missing from the list: Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who was singled out by the president in last night's speech for not doing enough to reform the Minerals Management Service, which is a part of the Interior Department.

The list, ping
New day, new FAIL.
Hours for snacks & golf minutes for America.
Good grief---how is it that THIS woman is involved in every disaster that befalls this great country of ours??????
Forget the figurehead Interior Secretary...where’s the Interior Czar?! Hey...it was only a 20 minute meeting anyway so each person only had about 1 minute to speak after handshakes. F E C K L E S S !
reparations for obama campaigne fund...screw the gulf.
Does the Cabinet have any responsibility in this administration, or does it just show up for occasional photo ops?
She's a "fixer".
Time for a legal representative for shareholders to be there too.
You gotta be kidding me, GORELICK??!!! What in the world is that woman doing at this meeting??
I wasn't aware she had scammed almost $27 mil from her time at Fannie Mae, how is it neither she nor Raines are behind bars?!!!
Anyone who could engineer 9/11 and then officially investigate it with no concern about truth is perfect for this situation. BP knows they are dealing with the “Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.” They are gonna fight fire with (a bigger and smarter) fire.
Socialists, stonewallers, Global Warmers and more lawyers...
The Lib/Dem way of solving issues, sue and blame.
Obie and his crew are abject, utter failures and our coastline suffers from their incompetence.
Salazar? Napolitano? These are far-Left ideologues who hate capitalism and prefer a State-run bicycle economy where the fat, idiotic bureaucrats act as gatekeepers to private and public resources, including money, food, energy, transportation, manufacturing, mining and even real estate.
They want 100% control like Stalin.
