Imagine This Was Rove...
I keep saying I won't do this...I need to embrace the hypocrisy...learn to love the double standard...
"We already knew that BP and its folks were significant contributors to the record $750-million war chest of Barack Obama's 2007-08 campaign.
Now, we learn the details of a connection of Rahm Emanuel...
Shortly after Obama's happy inaugural, eyebrows rose slightly upon word that, as a House member, Emanuel had lived the last five years rent-free in a D.C. apartment of Democratic colleague Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and her husband, Stanley Greenberg.
...Greenberg's consulting firm was a prime architect of BP's recent rebranding drive as a green petroleum company, down to green signs and the slogan "Beyond Petroleum."
Greenberg's company is also closely tied to a sister Democratic outfit -- GCS, named for the last initials of Greenberg, James Carville, another Clinton advisor, and Bob Shrum, John Kerry's 2004 campaign manager.
According to published reports, GCS received hundreds of thousands of dollars in political polling contracts in recent years from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Probably just a crazy coincidence. But you'll never guess who was the chairman of that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dispensing those huge polling contracts to his kindly rent-free landlord." source)
This is a WAY bigger scandal than the manufactured Haliburton scandal...it's a way bigger scandal because it's actually a scandal. The Obama administration awarded BP with a safety award.
Where are all the celebrities crying for the pelicans I keep seeing? Where's PETA? Why is this not a HUGE deal? Where is all the outpouring of love an aid that happened after Katrina, or the Sri Lanka Tsunami, or Haiti? Why is there no mention of the flooding in Nashville? More than 30 dead and $225 million in damage? Has Obama been there? Where are the pleas for help?
