Yeah – FU BP

Now – read this:

When Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX), a former oil executive whose company was purchased by BP, read his prepared text apologizing to BP for President Obama’s securing a $20B relief fund to pay the first part of damages from the Gulf Oil spill, he was following Republican Party orthodoxy, consistent with Republican National Committee banner ads.

‘former oil executive?’  ‘whose company was purchased by BP?’   Well,  he did receive a considerable sums from BP and other oil interests for funding of his campaigns.  While serving as a consultant for Atlantic Richfield, the company was sold to BP.  The first paragraph is misleading. It was not Joe Barton’s company but the company for whom he worked.

Regardless – he’s beholding.
