Got a light? The whole country can go up in flames, because the Democrats chose party over country, and elected a total moron for Presiden. He is probably planning on blowing up the whole country, and flying off to Kenya, his real Homeland. He really is losing it mentally, and someone needs to ask him to resign.

Hurry up, Rethuglicans.

Go apologize to BP for The President forcing them to create a clean-up fund.

Hurry now, get down on your knees and beg their forgiveness for them polluting our waters.

Send them roses.

It isn't a clean up fund, little Billy. It is a slush fund for the Democrats to use as their very own piggy bank. It is extortion, plain, and simple. Didn't you ever watch any gangster movies?

The Democrats will not fix it. The only way to fix it is to elect Republicans. Republicans will go to the aid of Republican Governors, the Messiah hates the South, and southerners, and is enjoying their distress. He will never be the President of all Americans. Remember in November!!

"Never let a crisis go to waste". The bigger the crisis the more they can do. Just like this slush fund they just illegally extorted from BP. We have laws and courts that decide remuneration for

damages caused by intent or accident. Just look at where this is going. Obama is intent on making BP the boogy man, the scape goat, to create a smokescreen so as to cover up his real motives which are to nationalise the oil and energy industry. I saw somewhere something about the U.S. having a large lien held against BP. If this is true and Obama forces BP into bankruptcy then in effect Obama takes control of the company. 40% of the BP stock is held in America the other 60 in England. Can you think of a better way to make an enemy out of a friend?

Another reason that Obama is vilifying BP is to cover up his own involvement in the accident and his own ineptitude and lack of response in the aftermath of the explosion.

The USA is the biggest polluter of the planet apart from China. Compensation fair enough. However US companies have not been so forthcoming with their own disaster managment and compensation.
Union Carbide in India explosion at chemical plant that killed thousands still waiting for compensation 25 years later. The US also stonewalled any expatriation of anyone for trial.

You should not take your spin from gangster movies. Get into the real life, the real issues and real solutions ...

Kenneth R. Feinberg will be the independent administrator of the $20 billion fund and he is qualified to do this and is respected.

Don't know whether Barton, Hoehner or Bachman send roses with their comments!

Some enterprising rose grower should come up with a suitable "sludge colored rose"!- the GOBP Special!

And why don't you fly off to yours? I hear Germany is lovely this time of year. Of course, you'll need a time machine to get back to your native 1939.

You think the republicans did themselves any good? First, putting 20 billion to the side for all affected in the gulf speeds up the claims process, avoids the potential of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and is being taken care of by a third party, not democrats or GOBP, so calling this a "slush fund", is again an inaccuracy promoted by the right.
Next, Michelle Bachman calls this "redistribution of wealth, using BP as an ATM machine". IS SHE OUT OF HER MIND?(rhetorical question).

It's once again looking more and more like the rethuglican party is coming to the rescue of BP.

Even Boehner said last week that BP should not be forced to pay or the entire clean up - leaving the taxpayers to shoulder the remaining cost. He's now backed away from this statement.

Hell, even the tea party wants nothing to do with the likes of Rand Paul, and just wait, because Bachman will be the next GOP ass fart they will exorcise from their movement.

Gee, now Sen. Barton says "I'm sorry for what I said", after starting the ball rolling calling the 20 billion dollar fund "A shakedown, amounting to nothing more than a slush fund". If he were not threatened with forced resignation, he would have stood by what he said, considering he recieved a large amount of money from BP, another GOP bought off by the oil industry.

I wonder if Bachman has recieved any cash from BP?

Hmmmm..........
