BP, Obama, Cap and Trade: A Riddle

Well let us see what we shall see, shall we? Obama co-founded the Cap and Trade Exchange system in Chicago. Tony Podesta, Chicago native, headed Obama's transition team. The Podesta Group has BP as a client. BP was Obama's largest corporate funder. BP supports Cap and Trade. Obama is Mr Cap and Trade.

Obama says he's going to do exactly what to their asses?

    Please get your teabagger information from better sources. Obama's largest funder was not BP, it was Golman followed by Microsoft and Google. BP wasn't even in the top 20.

  2. You are correct on Goldman, which is very interesting in itself, here's the dope on the dope's money from BP:
    "BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees — $2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

    On top of that, the oil giant has spent millions each year on lobbying — including $15.9 million last year alone — as it has tried to influence energy policy.

    During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records."
