So Halliburton, Transocean, Cameron International and all of the other companies caught smoking in the bathroom with BP are still banned from the Gulf?  Everything should be fine!

More like "BP allowed to leak oil from the Gulf of Mexico ... again"

"allowed."

Ha!

BP decided enough time has passed that they can start drilling again without having the politicians they own thrown out of office (yes, they also own the ones who'd replace those ones if they were thrown out of office, but that's costly and time consuming). They told those politicians as much and thus it shall be.

I was unaware the USA owned the gulf of Mexico...

bidding on new federal contracts

That's what I thought.  There was nothing stopping BP.

MBrady: like when 0bama threw the BP CEO under the bus while he was on vacation?


The same BP CEO who said "I want my life back" after his oil well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, creating the worst oil spill in US history?

or when 0bama and michelle told people to "vacation in the Gulf" but they went somewhere else?


It's always adorable when you use the 0 instead of an O for Obama.  It clearly identifies you as, if not a child, at least somebody with childlike intellect.

Here's a piece of construction paper and some glitter.  Go away and make me something pretty, while the adults talk.
