Mustn't get BP upset now. Even when BP's oil is literally killing people:

"One of the husbands -- who was married -- took a one-week job in Grand Isle -- a very toxic place, Grand Isle, unfortunately. And -- one week only -- came home, came home in the middle of August...[snip]...he dropped his mother off at work, he dropped his child off at school, his wife turned around because she heard a strange noise, and he dropped over dead. [snip] I am dealing with about 3 or 4 autopsies right now, and people are wondering, what exactly was the problem? I know of people who are down to 4.7 percent of their lung capacity and have an enlarged heart -- to make up for the reduced lung capacity. I know people whose esophaguses are dissolving -- disintegrating. Now, all of these people have oil in their bodies in the upper 95th percentile. This isn't one or two..."

It just goes to show you how rotten to the core our entire system is. And it doesn't matter who sits in the White House. It's clear that everyone who takes up residence in the White House is read the rules by the people who REALLY run things -- the oilmen, the bankers, and other corporatists.
