    joke Palin says Obama is in bed with big oil!

    Palin accuses Obama of being in bed with big oil - Yahoo! News

    "I don't know why the question isn't asked by the mainstream media and by others if there's any connection with the contributions made to president Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration," she told Fox News Sunday.

    ---

    Palin suggested this close relationship explained why Obama was, "taking so doggone long to get in there, to dive in there, and grasp the complexity and the potential tragedy that we are seeing here in the
    This is a very strange accusation coming from a woman who's husband used to work for BP and who was governor of a state where everyone who voted for her was receiving yearly checks from oil companies. Not to mention the proposed windfall tax on oil companies that came from the Obama administration. Or Palin's campaign slogan basically being Drill Baby, Drill. Or the whole Cap and Trade thing.

    In bed with Big Oil. Really.

    Partial retraction: The taxes levied on oil companies in Alaska don't actually come in the form of a yearly check. It goes into some sort of investment fund for when that oil runs out.

    Sarah Palin's husband worked for an oil company for years, so isn't SHE the one in bed with big oil?

    I don't know why people are appalled by the idea that we can view business as good for the country.

    Oil companies are not bad.

    Business having control over our government by basically buying them out is the part people have concern over, maybe.

    I could be wrong, but the way I understand it, all Alaska residents get kickbacks from Alaskan oil, not just people who voted for her.
    If you are right, that would be buying votes wouldn't it? The msm would be all over that. Again, if you are right, maybe you can provide proof?

    How much did our government "cost" then? Seems to me that the numbers showing BP's actual contributions to elected officials are really not all that high.

    I am not sure anyone was "bought" with the relatively small amounts of money (when you think in terms of buying off a government) that actually seem to get donated.

    Not to mention, shouldn't people be more concerned about the government, if they were in fact "bought off"?
