|Oil’s Well That Never Ends|
While the video is definitely funny, especially at the end, the bigger question is, why is Obama so timid in attacking rogue corporate interests? While he did profess faux outrage at the investment banks bonuses, he never followed up with action, much less results. Now he says he’s talking to people about the BP spill to determine “whose ass to kick,” a pathetic and transparently obvious attempt at anger, you ask me. He’s taking huge political hits over this, yet continues, by his lack of actions otherwise, to run interference for BP. Most curious, especially for a seasoned politician.
