Obama – Big Oil Lap Dog

Who would have thought? Our left wing Socialist President is a lap dog for Big Oil. Well, as they say, follow the money.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. But when it’s covered with thick crude, it becomes a lap dog!

As previously reported on Virginia Right!, President Obama has been the recipient of more BP money than any other member of congress. It looks like the investment in Obama is paying off for Big Oil.

Obama has completely ignored the disaster in the Gulf, allowing BP to try one thing after another without stopping the flow of oil.

He pretends to be tough, but his actions speak louder.

On May 14 of this year, Obama announced a moratorium on all offshore drilling. Since then he has approved seven permits to drill.

From the New York Times (of all people):

In the days since President Obama announced a moratorium on permits for drilling new offshore oil wells and a halt to a controversial type of environmental waiver that was given to the Deepwater Horizon rig, at least seven new permits for various types of drilling and five environmental waivers have been granted, according to records.

The records also indicate that since the April 20 explosion on the rig, federal regulators have granted at least 19 environmental waivers for gulf drilling projects and at least 17 drilling permits, most of which were for types of work like that on the Deepwater Horizon shortly before it exploded, pouring a ceaseless current of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

I am pretty sure that the outcry of greed and corruption would be at a full crescendo by now if this were Bush/Cheney in the White House.

Remember when Obama declared an end to the no-bid contracts? Not so fast on that front, either.

A $500,000,000 no-bid contract recently awarded to Halliburton, and another to a big campaign donor.

It costs a lot to run for president. Luckily, Obama can raid the taxpayer’s hard earned money to repay the donors.

What a dog!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
