BP: Gulf Mega-disaster was 'unlikely'
 If the Democrats had any brains...


British Petroleum once downplayed the possibility of a catastrophic accident at an offshore rig that exploded, 
causing the worst U.S. oil spill in decades along the Gulf Coast and endangering shoreline habitat.

In its 2009 exploration plan and environmental impact analysis for the well, BP suggested it was unlikely, 
or virtually impossible, for an accident to occur that would lead to a giant crude oil spill and serious damage to beaches, fish and mammals.
At least 1.6 million gallons of oil have spilled so far.

One expert said the volume of oil leaking from the well could actually be much higher, 
and that even more may escape if the drilling equipment continues to erode.

"The sort of occurrence that we've seen on the Deepwater Horizon is clearly unprecedented," BP's David Nicholas told The Whore AP. 
"It's something that we have not experienced before ... a blowout at this depth."

The spill a slick more than 130 miles long and 70 miles wide threatens hundreds of species of wildlife, 
including birds, dolphins and the fish, shrimp, oysters and crabs that make the Gulf Coast one of the nation's most 
abundant sources of seafood. Louisiana closed some fishing grounds and oyster beds because of the risk of oil contamination.

If the roles were reversed, if WE were the greedy oil bastards who wanted more millions and screw the risks,
the Republicans would use this event to drive a stake thru our hearts, ...but Democrats don't want to win that bad.

NOW is the time for Obama and every Democrat to stand up and say,
"THIS is why we need solar, and wind and whatever 
else is on the horizon.  THIS is why!"  but they won't do that - because they're Democrats.

The ONLY reason we're still using oil is because the Bush bastards make so much money from it.
We let them pollute what little clean America is left and they still want MORE.

But the Democrats are too f-ing polite to make their damn point when it would count the most.

THIS is why we need cars that run on electricty instead of dirty, costly, bloody, bird-killing, fish-killing oil. 

But the sacless Democrats are just too shy, too timid, too polite and too afraid to make their point.

What good are they?

Maybe will do some commercials showing dead and dying wildlife, and rusty, idol fishing boats,
super-imposed over a report saying Exxon made $35 BILLION last year and PAID NO TAXES.

I wish my party had a spine - or a half-a-spine.
