There is one question that I would really like an answer to. Who died and made BP king of the Gulf of Mexico? In recent weeks, BP has almost seemed more interested in keeping the American people away from the oil spill than in actually cleaning it up. Journalists are being pushed around and denied access, disaster workers are being intimidated and abused and now BP has even go so far as to hire an army of private mercenaries to enforce their will along the Gulf coast. Are we suddenly living in occupied Iraq? How in the world did a foreign oil company get the right to start pointing guns at the American people? The last time I checked, BP did not own the Gulf of Mexico and did not have the right to tell the American people where they can and cannot go. The truth is that BP could have avoided all of this by running an open, honest and transparent operation from the start. They could have welcomed help from all sources, they could have tried to be open with the media, and they could have tried to be fair with the volunteers and rescue workers. But instead BP has been conducting this whole thing as if we are living in a totalitarian dictatorship and they are the dictators.
Over the last several weeks, members of the mainstream media attempting to cover the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have been yelled at, harassed, kicked off public beaches and threatened with arrest. The Obama administration keeps promising "to improve media access", but so far their promises haven't seemed to make much difference. In fact, a recent AP report detailed several recent highly disturbing incidents of journalist intimidation....

But the Obama administration has allowed BP to dump over a million gallons of Corexit 9500, Corexit 9527 and other highly toxic dispersants into the Gulf of Mexico.
Meanwhile, the "oil volcano" on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico continues to pump out a nightmarish amount of oil every single day. BP is even admitting that oil is escaping from the leak at such high pressure that if they try to cap it the entire well may blow.
So this crisis may keep getting worse for months....
The ObaMalaise just keeps rolling along, spreading wider, deeper, bigger...
I saw yesterday that general aviation flights over the coast are being denied unless you are part of the cleanup.
Yeah, He’s America-Hater #2.
BP bought the Gulf of Mexico for $20 Billion dollars. They should be able to dictate who and when people have access.
Obama is in charge. He's taken full responsibility. He's right on top of this. He's fully engaged.
You don't like how it's going? You have a problem with dispersants? Take it up with the Destructive Force currently occupying the White House.
I’ve heard rumors that the entire gulf coast will be evacuated because the air coming in off the water will be completely toxic.
Are we ready to fire this idiot of a president yet?
Well he didn’t die, but der Fuhrer 0bamao made BP King of the Gulf of Mexico through the indifference and incompetence of his regime. They failed to adequately enforce regulations (don’t blame W - they had 18 months!) and after the accident, 0bamao was only interested in his golf game until uproar from the “little people” forced him to go to the Gulf.
Been ready since Day One!
(Though I still doubt that he is president)
Who Died And Made
BP BO King Of The Gulf Of Mexico?!
That arrogant little twit is channeling Garfield Goose! (I.e., thinks he's "King of the United States", for those of you who didn't grow up on Chicago TV.) Which makes me wonder: who do you suppose is the Puppet Master who has his hand up BO's rear?
S O R O S
$20 Billion was just a down payment
and BP has absolutely no say over how it is disbursed and to whom - chump change to a spending machine like obama- who will approve with one man- any and all claims under $500K
the extorters will be back in 6 months or less to up the ante
Just standard business practice for the corrupt
“Ive heard rumors that the entire gulf coast will be evacuated because the air coming in off the water will be completely toxic.”
They won’t have a choice when methane levels start to cause sickness...
I understand the Al Gore is part owner in that company also.
are being pushed around and denied access, disaster workers are being intimidated and abused and now BP has even go so far as to hire an army of private mercenaries to enforce their will along the Gulf coast’-—
Obama directing BP since day one.
The media sued during Katrina to get access.
Strangely they just don’t seem to care with Obama oil..
