    An apology for a $20B shakedown isn’t anything to aplogize for IMO.

    BP should pay for their accident, not for Obama’s shutting down of the entire deep water drilling industry.

    The more one looks at Obama the more one sees Chavez.

    Thank you, Mr. Luckovich. This really puts that comment in great perspective!

    @TxSon: Wow, that’s a stretch. Nothing Obama has done in this crisis would suggest a wholesale takeover of the oil industry, a la Chavez.

    BP’s actions have led to this disaster, and securing the funds to compensate those harmed by those actions is prudent. With the experience of seeing Exxon drag out for two decades the claims of those harmed in Valdez, it’s very prudent.

    What a schmuck. Apologize to BP for their incompetence and ruination of our shores. He should just call himself the Congressman of BP - it would at least be honest. And by the way, TxSon, the GOP is backing away from this as fast as they can, because it reveals just how obvious their corporate worship is…

    “BP should pay for their accident, not for Obama’s shutting down of the entire deep water drilling industry.”

    The president said, “Already, I’ve issued a six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling.” That’s true, but the moratorium only applies to new permits for deepwater drilling, and production from existing deepwater wells will continue. A Department of Interior press release on June 8 explained that “shallow water drilling operations and production activity in both deep and shallow waters are not under a moratorium and will continue, provided they are in compliance with the new safety requirements.” http://factcheck.org/2010/06/fact-checking-obamas-oil-speech/

    Nice try , though.

    Poor, poor BP. Who’s ready to pony up that cash to clean up their mess, GOP? Hmmm, just crickets.

    “jhouck99 said,

    Absolutely correct. Which is why there are ALREADY laws on the books requiring them to do so.

    What the Obamastassi did was merely political grandstanding, nothing more.

    Remember in November who apologizes to BP (the GOP) and who makes BP put up the cash (the President).

    yes he did. there was a cap on how much oil companies had to pay. 20 billion is a precedent.

    ^ And Obama made them put their money where their mouth is. Why is that so wrong?

  14. jhouck99

    jhouck99 said, about 4 years ago

    @JoeRaisin: Yes, that law that caps the liability at $75million, a totally inadequate amount in the face of this disaster. It’s not even known yet if $20billion their putting into escrow will be enough, but it’s better than the next to nothing the current law allows.

    billdog, you got that right- The Nazi big lie technique was perfected by Karl Rove. Now calling Obama a Nazi, communist, Hitler by the unhinged right, continues ad nauseum. I can’t believe these people would go this far if they were not total racists.
