Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

Where were the historic preservationists when the Cooper House was demolished? I stood there and watched the wrecking ball with tears streaming down my face.

I call BS and spin.
Obama received a total of $77,051 from BP, hardly a windfall and pales in comparison to what the Koch brothers are doing, don't ya think?
Obama has been attempting to include the GOP so often in things he has ticked off the liberal base. So, another wrong opinion, as the GOP has minority power in the senate that has stalled every good piece of legislation.
Finally, it was and is the GOP thyat are screaming about the drilling moratorium.
You are NOT ENTITLED TO YOUR OWN FACT DESPITE WHAT BECK AND LIMPBALLS TELL YOU.


from Politico While the BP oil geyser pumps millions of gallons of petroleum into the Gulf of Mexico, President Barack Obama and members of Congress may have to answer for the millions in campaign contributions they’ve taken from the oil and gas giant over the years.

BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees —$2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

On top of that, the oil giant has spent millions each year on lobbying — including $15.9 million last year alone — as it has tried to influence energy policy.

During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.

Dude, you still drinking the left's Coolaide.

Why on earth would any reasonable person read the Washington Examiner? It's like Breitbart in print.
That's it? That's your rebuttal? Pretty lame, Gdude.

The chart came from the Congressional Budget Office.
