Obama BP meeting: No Interior Secretary, but lots of lawyers
Washington Examiner ^ | June 16, 2010 | Byron York

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.

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.

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.

The 2012 Democrat campaign will be funded by billions of dollars of handouts to liberal activist groups.

Maybe Obama had other plans for Salazar.

"$20 Billion Slush Fund for 0bama to dole out in favors to his friends" - JIT for the November elections.

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