    Seriously -- you can't see the difference??

    Administration 1 allows the VP to hold secret meetings with oil and energy lobbyist to determine U.S. energy policy for the next 8 years.

    Administration 2 pushes for emissions legislation, unties the hands of the EPA, funds clean energy initiatives, and makes a bi-partisan effort at opening the door to safe nuclear energy and off-shore drilling (no good dead goes unpunished)

    Rev -- change the channel, Fox and far-right radio is fillin' your head with spin...


    BTW -- who's campaign slogan was drill baby drill??

    I guess BP isn't as crooked as Halliburton.

    Really?

    The Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact analysis last year, according to government documents, after three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely.

    Move along folks, nothing to see here...... move along.

    They didn't care about Goldman Sachs and Obama, so they sure as hell won't care about BP and Obama.

    Ahh yes... Halliburton. The liberal slogan of the anti-war left of the 21st century. Gee... remember how almost ever post on every blog or forum would tout Halliburton endlessly?

    Yet we have a President (not a VP), who's now got two big contributor failures around his neck without even a whisper of "British Petroleum" or "Goldman Sachs". Wonder why the bleating sheep have suddenly gone quiet?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
