    I thought BP transferred Tony somewhere else………….

    ^They did, but after engaging in a big PR campaign to convince folks they would do what was needed to clean up the spill and compensate all those who were harmed, they’ve quietly done an about face and are doing their best to avoid fully taking responsibility.

    Aw, gee whiz. And here I thought we were making some progress with Bropst. How long will it take for him to get over this and understand the definition of “murder”. As for the claim process, did we all forget that BP handed over $20B to the feds to pay the claims, and any arguments about it should be with Feinberg, not BP? Oh, but wait. It’s easier and more fun to bash BP than Obama’s appointees, right?

    I realize it far from politicaly correct, but when is Oliphant going to depict Obama as the fox attacking the tar babby (Libya)?

    Actually, the money wasn’t handed over to the Feds… It was put in a trust that Fienberg administrates. Though there was never any statement that a) that would be enough or b) that would be the end of it.

    Yes there are a lot of complaints about how slowly Feinberg is moving.

    BP paid Congress over a million dollars to look the other way on the oil spill and find some other patsy to take the blame and clean it up. Even Boehner has said the PUBLIC should pick up the tab, not BP.

    Yet BP still gets a $10 Billion tax break for polluting and is now suing Transocean for $40 Billion.

    Yes, BP was supposed to put $20Bn into escrow. That, they decided would be over a several year time frame. They as the issue faded behind Lybia and Egypt and thugnocants giving away the treasury to their fascist buddies, BP has quitely exitied stage left, leaving behind their wet willies to demonize anyone who tries to make a claim for actual losses.

    BP is paying out, I saw a woman on the TV who got a twelve dollar check for the interest on the money BP was holding for her.

    BP is suing Transocean for forty billion.

    Anyone who wants to defend BP’s actions is either on their payroll or seriously deranged… or both.

    Vortex is a one-issue commentator: “Dim/Libs.” He really hasn’t anything else to say.

    ”Kenneth Feinberg, administrator of the $20 billion compensation fund for victims of BP Plc’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill, said he anticipates half that amount will be sufficient to cover claims for economic losses.

    ”The fund, established by BP after negotiations with the Obama administration, also pays clean-up costs. While Feinberg told Bloomberg Television today [12-31-2010] that it is too early to project how much will go to individuals and businesses, he estimated $10 billion may be enough to compensate victims.

    ”“It remains to be seen, but I would hope that half that money would be more than enough to pay all the claims,” Feinberg said.”

    Of course Feinberg is an Obama appointee. If he had been a Bush appointee, TROUT and the rest of the Libs would be on here touting how Bush was under the employ and/or a lacky of BP. But since we’re talking about the Obama Administration, you will never hear that from either Liberals or the Media. In fact, had Feinberg’s statement happened under the Bush Administration, it would have been on the front page of the NYTimes. Indeed, I’d be interested to know what page his quote appeared on– or if it appeared at all.

    EDIT: I just did a search for Feinberg’s quote on nytimes.com, and lo and behold, no hits.
