Bullshit Promotion

Can you imagine how loud the American 'left' would be screaming if the BP spill had occurred on Bush's watch (of course, the background for the spill did occur on Bush's watch, but the clean-up is all on Obama)? Obama's lucky: the 'left' won't attack him, the right stays away as an attack on Obama would be an attack on a sacred corporation, and the mainstream media is doing its usual job to hide the truth. How does Obama explain:
  1. The Coast Guard is assisting BP in preventing even the most rudimentary press coverage of the damage BP has caused (part of a general strategy of obfuscation by BP, aided and abetted by the Obama Administration)?
  2. "Video shows federal officials knew quickly of potential for massive oil flow in Gulf spill"? And yet it took weeks to mobilize any kind of practical response (exactly like the Bush Administration with Katrina).
  3. BP's cover-up of the damning video - which showed that things were much worse than BP was saying - was aided and abetted by the Obama Administration, which had access to the live feed and was using it as a kind of office lava lamp?
  4. "Deepwater Horizon Was Supposed To Be Inspected At Least 1X A Month. It Wasn't. Why?" (it was actually inspected more often during the Bush Administration!)?
To his credit, Obama has separated the group of bureaucrats who encourage drilling from those who regulate it!! I wonder if Barry said: "Oynesie, yer doin' a heck of a job!" just before he told him it might be a good time to move on.

BP intends to come out of this with almost no liability for the hundreds of billions or trillions of dollars of damage it caused (despite the fact the entire problem was based on BP cutting corners to save a little money), and with the drill site operational and, with a new rig, pumping oil.
