Posted on 06/16/2010 9:19:27 AM PDT by Zakeet
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.

“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.
"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.
20 mins with BP to look good, 1.5 hrs luncheon with Biden priceless.
Well, you know what they say . . . "never let a crisis go to waste"
Did Obambi ask BP CEO Hayward why he sold his stock in Horizon 2 weeks before the explosion?
