Gee. No one could ever have predicted this. Of course when you tell people that there they have a chunk of $20 billion just waiting for them they’re going to try to pull one over.

That Didn’t Take Long

I knew it wouldn’t take too long for a lefty greentard to be upset that the oil spill isn’t the ecological disaster the media hyperbole claimed it would be. Now that the oil on the surface appears to be dissipating, the notion of a recovery from the spill, repeated by politicians, strikes some here as […]

A Lost Opportunity

Something tells me that the terminally libertarded are very upset at this; that, rather than a good thing, they have been robbed of an opportunity to further use the hyperbolic oil spill coverage as a means to further the progressive agenda. The Washington Post: Oil from the BP blowout is degrading rapidly in the warm […]

Par for the Course

Neil King Jr. And Keith Johnson of The Wall Street Journal: Obama Decried, Then Used, Some Bush Drilling Policies Criticizing Bush during his presidential campaign, then co-opting his shitty policies and making them all his own, then blaming Bush when shit goes wrong is par for the course with Obama. What is the deal this […]

WSJ: BP Relied on Faulty U.S. Data

The more information that emerges about the oil spill, the more it looks to be a government induced problem, and not solely a matter of corporate irresponsibility (though I suspect that the likes of MSNBC and CNN will still spin it that way).  Neil King Jr. and Keith Johnson via The Wall Street Journal: BP […]

A very long and impeccably researched expose on the Deepwater Horizon explosion and the immediate efforts to pinch the leak shows two very undeniable facts: Though people would blame “deregulation” for the oil leak, it wasn’t that there were not more than enough regulations that might have kept the explosion and resulting spill from happening, […]

Blind to Reality

I guess it hasn’t yet sunk in that Obama can’t don his super hero suit, swim the nearly one mile down to the leaking oil well and stop the leak by sheer will power.  I’m not sure why this administration is trying to put forth the notion that plugging the oil well in the gulf […]

Wes Benedict, Executive Director of the Libertarian Party, in a statement concerning government reaction to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico: When President Obama gave his Oval Office speech on Tuesday, there was one important word missing: the word ‘liability.’ The president never mentioned that, thanks to liability caps provided by the […]

At It Again

Apparently, Obama is back to thinking he’s fucking El Supremo.  Robert Gibbs, Press Secretary of the White House, in a NPR interview on using executive strong-arming with BP: Mr. GIBBS: Steve, I’d say we’re working on that with a whole host of entities. The point of this is to create, if need be through the […]
