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.

And “Sheriff Ken” gave up what might have been a safe Senate seat for this. Schadenfreude!

Lawyers, pencil pushers and a pencil neck geek (Obama) - oh yeah, that'll get er done. You've got a - what - 60,000 gallon per day raw oil leak 5000 ft below the surface of the Gulf and not a single engineer in the room.
And this is the government that took over the health care for 270 million people.
Whoops, I just threw up a little into my mouth. Shoot me now.

And Obamah complains about the MMS & Big Oil Relationship.
But he got what he wanted. There's a new $20 Billion Slush Fund for 0bama to dole out in favors to his friends. I seem to recall that ACORN is also based in Louisiana. I gotta believe that they will make out like the bandits they are in this.

“But he got what he wanted. There’s a new $20 Billion Slush Fund...”
ABSOLUTELY!!!...and THAT was the real purpose of the BP meeting...the community organizer President has a nose for money...this guy is no different than Jesse or Al...it’s all about shaking down ‘da man’
A comforting thought, no?

The 2012 Democrat campaign will be funded by billions of dollars of handouts to liberal activist groups.
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."
Maybe Obama had other plans for Salazar.

Did Obambi ask BP CEO Hayward why he sold his stock in Horizon 2 weeks before the explosion?
