Has anyone bothered to ask what gives The Obama has the power to order BP to "set aside whatever resources are required to compensate the workers and business owners who have been harmed"?
Obama to demand BP pay for oil spill damage - Yahoo! News
Wow, Obama, you dedicated a whole 20 minutes to meet with BP? Nice of you to push your tee time back a few minutes.BP executives, including Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, CEO Tony Hayward and BP U.S. boss Lamar McKay, were seen walking into the West Wing of the White House just before 10 a.m. ET for talks with Obama that were scheduled to last 20 minutes.
Hayward, etc, should respond with “Sorry, but no. However, if you ask nicely, then maybe we’ll consider it”.
There's no support for BP in what I said, there's opposition to the idea that The Obama can simply order BP to create this fund and then turn the administration of said fund over to some 3rd party.
But then, Messiahs aren't constrained by the rules of foolish mortals.

BP Oil Spill: What is the Jones Act?
Because they haven't needed to lift the Jones Act.
We are using the assistance from other countries. They aren't being ignored.
To turn this into a political move? So if he says nothing then we bash him for inaction, he comes out and says what he's doing and what his plans are and we bash him for playing politics and that he blamed it on Bush though he didn't even mention Bush's name? I can't say that i expected any different when I clicked on this thread. Kudos.
