Obama Makes Things Worse by Sending Prosecutors After BP

Under enormous political pressure to “do something” about the Gulf oil spill, President Obama has sent Federal Prosecutors to look for and prosecute BP officials and workers. If there is one corporation or entity on the planet with a vested interest in shutting off the flow of oil, it is BP. They will be held accountable for every drop spilled, and future drilling in deep waters will undoubtedly be more difficult as the horrors of the oil wash ashore.

But now, instead of focusing only on stopping the flow of oil, BP workers and executives must tread carefully due to the latest threat from Obama. Facts will be omitted with an eye on protecting themselves from prosecution and jail. The financial threats already have BP’s lawyers working on some type of bankruptcy protection, as well as looking into international laws should the US government decide to nationalize BP.

At this point, the people are not calling on Obama to put someone in jail. They are simply looking for leadership.

There is no doubt that these threats will only drive a wedge between the US Government and BP. Instead of leadership, Obama has continued to emphasize his inexperience in executive positions.

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