Obama and Hayward, Progressives to the End

President Obama has dissed BP and turned the company into a capitalist pariah for his own progressive agenda.Contrary to the capitalist charge, BP has been cutting backroom deals with the government for a long time, so it is no wonder they were on board with cap-and-trade way before the rig blew up. From Washington Examiner :

While BP has resisted some government interventions, it has lobbied for tax hikes, greenhouse gas restraints, the stimulus bill, the Wall Street bailout, and subsidies for oil pipelines, solar panels, natural gas and biofuels.

Now that BP's oil rig has caused the biggest environmental disaster in American history, the Left is pulling the same bogus trick it did with Enron and AIG: Whenever a company earns universal ire, declare it the poster boy for the free market.

When Obama needs him to be, BP CEO Tony Hayward is a capitalist. Then when Obama needs to push cap-and-trade, Hayward becomes a progressive. Early on Hayward blithely said that the disaster was not something to worry about. He knew his personal assets would never be touched, and in true egocentric fashion blew off the tragic repercussions of the oil spill to the rest of us

The two men have something in common with a dead tyrant. During the first Persian Gulf War Saddam Hussein attempted a takeover of Kuwait's oil fields. Like a chastised child after he was told no, Hussein had his minions set fire to as many oil rigs as possible because if he couldn't have them, nobody could. This was a waste of precious potential energy and an egregious crime against humanity.

So goes Obama and Hayward showing a pathological detachment from the rest of humankind while new estimates of uncontained oil are reaching over two million gallons per day.

Progressives using capitalist rhetoric: grow your own personal assets, rape the land, and the hell with the rest of humanity.
