What Barton said wasn’t popular, and it sure wouldn’t win friends at a time that everyone is demonizing BP, but on principle he is right.

They had a right to due process.

BP wanted to drill in 50 foot deep water and the government said absolutely not.

So then BP said ok we’ll drill down 500 feet and still the government said no.

So, BP was essentially forced to drill 35,000 foot down offshore.

And everybody is shocked something went wrong?

I never used to buy BP gas before April 20. Now it’s the ONLY gas station I go to.

When we take back congress in November, the first thing that needs to be done is REMOVE John Boner from the leadership position. I have watched this guy closely for years. He talks a good conservative game but is really a fraud. He is NOT a true conservative. We need to make Pence the speaker. Then in the Senate, make Jim Demint the leader.

We must get rid of the mooshy country club republicans, starting with Boehner

OK...I get it.

They're trying to milk this issue for all it's worth to divide conservatives.

Won't work. It's already yesterday's news despite Emmanuel's trying to whip it up yesterday and CNN trying to help him today.

Keep up the talk on the drilling moratorium instead. That one's got long legs and will hurt Dems a LOT.

Rush is correct. Who oversees this fund? An Obama
appointee. How did Zer0 come to $20 Billion?
Why not $60 or $100?

Meanwhile Zer0 is doing nothing,nothing and more nothing.

Forget about due process. Hopey changey. This is purely Marxist.

John Boehner 1-202-225-6205; Eric Cantor 1-202-225-2815.

Big shout-out to Goat Boy for golfing eighteen holes and watching baseball for three hours.

Rahm the Ballerina walks around in the nude finger-poking other nude men.

Feinman is independent and asks Goat Boy what that means.

Goat Boy waited fifty-nine days then had his Coast Guard check life vests and fire extinguishers.

Maybe Red Adair and Boots 'n' Coots used tire guages on seven hundred oil well fires in the first Gulf War.

Saul Alinsky is unavailable to fuel my truck--where do I get one o' them windmills?

Meanwhile next year's economic asteroid looms larger--but, hey, the fairies are shrieking, "O the yacht!"

Goat Boy's got a pimpmobile with five-inch ballistic armor, run-flat tires, and glass so thick they have to keep the interior lights on all the time.

And it runs on. . .Robert Gibbs' magic butt.

And what really torques me is how BP CEO Hayward put a ban on gulf drilling--

Wait.

Rush, as usual, is right. Our ‘president’ is a thug. His administration practices thuggery. It is one thing to recognize that BP has made mistakes. It is another thing altogether to bully them; Obama’s behavior is illegal. We must have a dozen reasons to impeach this SOB. Any takers?

Library user, you need to find another library to get your information from... where did you get 35,000 ft from?

You need to be more careful with your data, unless you are a LIBERAL/DEMORAT, then you do not have to worry about FACT, as long as you feel good about what you are posting.

Barton called it. It was/is a shakedown. Pure and simple. Saying otherwise just shows a lack of backbone and/or corruption. BP is no hero, but that doesn’t nullify calling a spade a spade. (And, no, that’s NOT a racial slur.)

“Ah we told the truth about Obama and he still won.”

We are going after the wrong people. We should be boycotting the MSM and sending letters to companies who advertise stating we will no longer buy their products if they advertise.

It is the MSM that created Obama. And it is the MSM that protects him.

Bingo!

100% dead on right! Rush got it and so did you! Yet another reason I’m NOT a Republican.

And by the way, this $20 billion slush fund that’s supposed to be handled by an “independent 3rd party” — WHEN DID KENNETH FIENBERG, OBAMA’S PAY CZAR, BECOME AN INDEPENDENT 3RD PARTY!?!?!

Limbaugh will probably lose some listeners in our area. Take that for what you will.

I don’t think people who don’t have the gun of this spill cocked directly at them and their way of life realize just how scarring an event this is already been.

We’re not just talking about beach cleanup here. We are talking about the very possible destruction of a way of life that has existed for 300 years and a situation which, if we never recover from it, will probably force the lions share of people down here to leave and never come back, a transition of the population not seen since the Great Migration of the blacks 100 years ago.

That’s why if you’re not from the part of the world that’s dealing with the first hand you really have no business commenting on it because you don’t realize what’s at stake.

Boehner doesn't have the spine or the temperment for his job.

As for McConnell, he showed real promise until he actually got the job.

New Congressional majority means nothing with the same old leadership.

Please explain how accepting the Left's premises is going to help win Congress for the Republicans.

Groveling and caving in to the Democrats is exactly why the GOP is out of power right now.

Well thats partially true. The problem is the majors do want to drill deepwater. Shelf drilling is easier, but deepwater has much larger resevoirs. Most of the majors and mid-majors partner up to tackle these deepwater wells because if they produce, they become gamechangers.

So, the shelf might be attacked by enviros, but the oil companies do want to drill in deepwater, also.

I don’t think it was a shakedown. I think it was a deal to insulate the BP execs from criminal and probably civil liability.

BP had Jamie Gorelick at the table. You don’t call her unless you are about to screw over the United States in grand fashion.

BP cashed in all their campaign donation chips.

“We don’t have any leadership in Washington. As a group, they are whores & cowards.”

WHY hasn't this been repeated yet ????

It should have been - and it should be on every post about D.C.

It should be on Drudge every day - Rush. Levin, Savage, Hannity etc should begin each day with this utterance - it should be in headlines here on FR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND, we should demand in every state, that if someone in D.C. has been there over 6 years, they have to go, including the staff (actually, they are ALL guilty of treason anyway, but I want them to know that 6 years is the limit regardless) - this should be on every state ballot as an amendment this November, and effective immediately.

AND if those DC scourge say anything about this violating the Constitution, remind them that THEY have ignored the Constitution for the LAST time; and that they are NOW guilty of treason; for allowing that American Hating Muslim to step one foot in the White House. He is NOT qualified to be president even if he was spawned in the Lincoln bedroom per the Constitution; Article II Section 1 AND the 14th Amendment - they have ALL violated their oath of office, and I repeat, guilty of treason.

remember, “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands .......”

It does say people - not sheeple.

To my fellow Patriots, it is NECESSARY.

“When peaceful revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution is inevitable “. JFK

O)f the four, only Savage has been real critical of the RINO Republicans. He likes Michele Bachmann, as she is pretty much fearless. I do too.

DeMint has fought back. So has Rep. Issa

3 people out of hundreds in D.C. doesn’t cut it. We have no leadership.

This isn't about winning friendships or hurt feelings, this is about getting to the truth even if it offends some on either side of the issue.

They had a right to due process.

That was a show trial, pure and simple. It had nothing to do with "due process", or justice, or righting wrongs. This was pure politics on display.
