U.S. President Barack Obama (2nd R) and Vice President Joe Biden (3rd R) meet with BP executives in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, in this handout photo taken and released June 16, 2010. BP has reached a preliminary agreement to put $20 billion into an escrow account to pay damage claims from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, a source with knowledge of the process said on Wednesday. Pictured (L-R): BP CEO Tony Hayward, BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, BP General Counsel Rupert Bondy, BP Managing Director Robert Dudley, Senior Obama Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Attorney General Eric Holder, Biden, Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
“I own you”
They are singing “There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There’s a hole, there’s a hole,
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.”
Stalin and Mussolini wannabees?

Strange. No eye contact from O’s side of the table.
Note that the caption only identifies those PICTURED. Not pictured include Jamie Gorelick. THAT Jamie Gorelick behind the “wall” that led to the 911 attacks and inside during the banking collapse at Fannie.
THEYRE HERE (WTH??? Jamie Gorelick at the White House/BP meeting!!!)

He doesn’t even sit at the HEAD of the table.
Teddy Roosevelt surveying the assembled....
Why does this remind me of this.
Did Biden fall asleep??
If all these people were in a boat, and the boat sank, who would be saved?

Fascinating...six attorneys have the knowledge to tell the oil people how to fix the oil spill.
THE UNITED STATES!!!
Saw a Politico name match that says she was in the running for Attorney General. Just what makes her such an “expert” on all things including banking and national security and laws?
If Obozo was a leader he would have had these BP officials and every expert from all companies in the field in a meeting a week after the spill started.
O: Get out there and plug the damn leak or I’ll kick your asses every day (Guess I told them who’s the man..)
Dear God, look what climbed up out of that leaking hole... Jamie Gorelick
See post #5. Reuters opts not to identify BP council, Jamie Gorelick.
Assembling the Team
During 2000 and 2001, the Joyce Foundation, a progressive trust with assets near $1 billion, known for funding groups like Center for American Progress and Tides Foundation, provided grants to CCX totaling $1.1 million. State Senator Obama served on the foundations board of directors during that time and was instrumental in awarding the grants.
Shortly after the first grant was approved, the president of The Joyce Foundation, Paula DiPerna, left to join the executive team of CCX. Other notables with familiar names soon followed.
Former Vice-President Al Gore became part-owner of CCX when his company, Generation Investment Management, made a sizeable investment. Gore brought with him his senior partner at GIM, David Blood, former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, along with a company chalk full of former Goldman Sachs executives
Goldman Sachs itself soon joined the team buying a ten percent interest in CCX
Maurice Strong, once linked to Tongsun Park, the central figure in the United Nations oil-for-food scandal in 2005 and one of the architects of the Kyoto Protocol, joined the CCX board of directors
Carlton Bartels was one of the first, and perhaps most important, additions to the CCX roster. As CEO of a company called CO2e, Bartels developed and delivered the actual guts of the exchange a system for facilitating and managing the actual carbon trades
Just three weeks after filing for a patent for his carbon trade system, Bartels was killed during the attacks of 9/11. Bartels death opened the door for a new partner to join CCX, easily the oddest fit of them all: Fannie Mae. In a move still unexplained, the quasi-governmental mortgage agency, led by CEO Franklin Raines, purchased the rights to the system from Bartels widow. A patent on the invention was granted to Raines and Fannie Mae on November 7, 2006, ironically, the day after the Democrats regained control of Congress. According to Barbara Hollingsworth of the Washington Examiner, the patent covers both the cap and trade parts of Obamas top domestic energy initiative and gives Fannie Mae proprietary control over the automated trading system used by Sandors CCX.
When asked about the patent recently Fannie Mae communications director Amy Bonitatibus told the Washington Examiner, Fannie Mae earns no money on this patent. We cant conjecture as to the cap-and-trade legislation. A source close to Fannie Mae, however, says a plan is in place to funnel future earnings from the patent to a non-profit housing organization called Enterprise Community Partners. Ironically, Raines, who left Fannie Mae in 2004 amidst allegations that he inflated earnings reports in order to collect higher bonuses ($52 million in bonuses over 5-years; $90 million in total compensation), serves on the board of trustees at Enterprise. In a continuation of theme, Goldman Sachs also has a representative on the board in the person of Alicia Glen.
Just three weeks after filing for a patent for his carbon trade system, Bartels was killed during the attacks of 9/11.
Guess whos been involved intimately with Fannie Mae? Does the name Jamie Gorelick ring a bell?
This woman is everywhere, and
Jamie Gorelick got a 26 million payout when she left the place.

Gorelick looks like hell...LOL!
She seems to be the “clean up” er, cover goto person.
What is the difference between a pink “A” and a blue “A?” (There’s a joke in there somewhere. LOL)
"... so I carefully examined the environment, as close as any man can, but suddenly someone called out and I missed the putt. You ever have that feeling... you know, that you could get the job done if it weren't for some damned yahoo butting in?"
1.”Mr. President—don’t you have laws here against cruel and unusual punishment? Why are you making us meet with BOTH you and Joe Biden?”
2.”No, Joe,for the last time, you can’t fix this with a Super Soaker!”
3. Valerie Jarrett is thinking “I’m so important. I’m so important”
4. Zero:”Gentlemen, BP is acting stupidly.”
5. Tony Hayward thinking: “I oughta kick YOUR @ss!”
6. Other BP execs: “Wish I had sold my stock before Deep Horizon like Hayward did!”
7. Zero: “When is someone going to bring me my Slushie?”
Uh oh. Here comes the Union cram-down.
“Strange. No eye contact from Os side of the table”.
...good observation. The Marxists on the kenyans side already know what’s in store for this company and it ain’t pretty.
I’m gonna make him an offer he won’t refuse. Okay?
FACE TO FACE: President Obama and Vice President Biden are set to meet Wednesday morning with BP executives, including Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg and CEO Tony Hayward. Obama's schedule has him sitting down with the executives for just 20 minutes, from 10:15 a.m. to 10:35 a.m., when he'll attend his daily intelligence briefing.

Biden predicts early crisis will test Obama
From CNN Political Producer Alexander Marquardt
Biden predicts Obama will have to make some unpopular decisions in his first six months in office.
SEATTLE (CNN) - Joe Biden told Democratic fundraisers Sunday night that there is no doubt in his mind a crisis will occur during Barack Obama’s first six months in office that will test his mettle and force him to make unpopular decisions.
“Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,” said Biden to a roomful of donors. “The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.”
“Remember I said it standing here, if you don’t remember anything else I said,” Biden continued. “Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.
“I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it’s going happen. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate.”
The Delaware senator spoke at two Seattle fundraises Sunday night, expected to bring in $1 million for the campaign. Biden told the supporters that when Obama will need them to stand with the administration on the difficult calls - not financially, but by using their influence within their communities to convince others that the right decisions are being made.
“I promise you, you all are going to be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls, why is the polling so down, why is this thing so tough?’ We’re going have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years,” said Biden. “I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you’re going to have to reinforce us.”
Telling the crowd to “gird their loins” for a bumpy beginning to the next presidential term, Biden said it wouldn’t be initially apparent that the correct decisions are being made because “they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.”
Fundraisers are generally closed to the media’s cameras, though print journalists are usually allowed in. Biden appeared to forget Sunday night’s fundraiser wasn’t closed to reporters, saying, “I probably shouldn’t have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here.” Moments later, he ended his remarks.
Then they are cutting a deal. No way do they do this without some sort of guarantee on the final price.
6. Other BP execs: Wish I had sold my stock before Deep Horizon like Hayward did!
And Goldman Sachs, and State of NJ (Corzine?)
“Goldman Sachs Sold 44% Of BP Stock 3 Weeks Before Blowout”
“NJ sold off $465M in BP stock before rig explosion in the Gulf”
Looking at the picture, you get the feeling that they all were at that table once before-—but the plot hasn’t gone as planned, and now they are thinking up a new story....
One more thing—that photo is not complete—there are a couple of hands in the foreground of folks not pictured!
The fact that she got $36 million from Fannie Mae would make her pretty much a bank expert, don’t you think>???
