I have not commented on the ongoing BP saga as many more qualified than myself have already covered all the ramifications of the leak on both the economy and the gulf itself, but President O'Barmys ass kicking comment and his intense dislike of all things British is just too much to be silent about.A former community organiser(what?) who has never had to earn a living nor balance a payroll,the President seems intent on bringing down a major international company....that will show your former mentors just how far you have come hey Barry? Never one to let a crisis go by,the President will no doubt push through ever more stringent and costly environmental and energy restrictions whilst giving a bloody nose to the evil Brits at the same time....Bingo! Poor old Cameron was an easy push over with the weekend phone call promising not to overly punish BP....as if poor toff Dave was going to get tough with a chap of a darker complexion...not the done thing old boy dontcha know.Many people (me too I'll add) are now going to suffer so that the pres can push forward his anti business, socialist agenda, consequences be damned. BP are to blame for the leak and as such deserve to pay all the penalties that such a disaster engenders. But demanding they pay for everything whist simultaneously destroying the company is insane....how are they to pay if destroyed. Financial experts with knowledge of the rarefied world of international finance have said repeatedly that BP are more than capable of paying any and all reasonable costs....but the demands of O'Barmy and his minions are far from reasonable, but isn't that the point?
