    BP bused in 100s of temp workers for Obama visit, state official says

    BP bused in 100s of temp workers for Obama visit, state official says - Yahoo! News

    Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts, whose district encompasses Grand Isle, told Yahoo! News that BP bused in "hundreds" of temporary workers to clean up local beaches. And as soon as the president was en route back to Washington, the workers were clearing out of Grand Isle too, Roberts said.
    "The level of cleanup and cooperation we've gotten from BP in the past is in no way consistent to the effort shown on the island today," Roberts said by telephone. "As soon as the president left, they were immediately put back on the buses and sent home."
    Roberts says the overnight contingent of workers was there mainly to furnish a Potemkin-style backdrop for the event while also making it appear that BP was firmly in command of spill cleanup efforts

    Hmm... so these temporary people used as a backdrop for President Obama's benefit, left after Obama left. How is this a benefit to BP? I would think it would have been a benefit to the President. Sorta like this was:



    I mean... everyone knows that 100% of Doctors wear white lab coats outside and during press conferences - just so the viewers know and can recognize "Hey! I'm a Doctor over here! See my bright Tide white lab coat!!?" Same thing with the BP "cleanup workers" bussed in from who knows where.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    Maybe the President should have visited sooner.

    The oil-spill issue has definitely bypassed partisan favoritism

    serpenthead carville last nite on cnn raged on about the lack of CLEANUP going on TODAY, YESTERDAY, DAY 38, DAY 37...

    ie, nothing has been done of substance to clean up this mess

    what is obama waiting for?

    if they can't stop the leak they should at least be out there, y'know, trying to contain the damage

    instead, he's on VACATION

    he's bouncing basketballs with the blue devils

    he's fundraising for bitchy barbara boxer

    "the media may get tired of this story but we will not," the president PROJECTED friday before flying to chicago for the weekend

    'You will not be abandoned,' Obama tells weary Gulf Coast | McClatchy

    he WISHES the media would just drop this

    it interrupts all the fun of being president

    but they won't, never

    the msm will be all over this chernobyl off louisiana for years

    pray

    Prof, I actually enjoy your posts, really I do, they make me laugh.

    I'll just debunk one of your points.

    = Louisana Oil Spill

    = Chernobyl

    What is that suppose to prove?

    Chernobyl Disaster = environmental and human disaster which only happened because someone wanted energy and humans used a means which is dangerous and delicate to produce it.
    Gulf Oil Disaster = environmental and human disaster which only happened because someone wanted energy and humans used a means which is dangerous and delicate to produce it.

    Sounds the same, to me - but Chernobyl, on a human scale, was far worse . . . but the meat of it is the exact same. People overstepping their bounds and ****ing over others for the sake of their precious energy.
