    Another day, another 50,000 gallons

    The Federal government has nothing to do with this ? Since 2008, BP lobbyists have spent $30 million to influence legislation, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The 17th-ranked lobbying company in 2009, it has also nearly doubled its percentage of campaign contributions to Democrats. Obama was the largest recipient of campaign contributions from BP employees in 2008, at $71,000.
    The Federal government has granted numerous "environmental waivers" for off-shore drilling since the clueless wonder declared a moratorium on same. BP’s idea of working tirelessly with government agencies was lobbying them to bypass environmental-impact reviews for well-permits.
