BP Republicans

When the oil spill began in the Gulf, many people, including President Obama, wanted to hold BP accountable.
These Republicans quickly leapt to the defense.....of BP.

Ladies and Gentle-Ladies, your The BP Republicans:

Congressman Joe Barton, the top Republican-BP on the committee overseeing the oil spill and its aftermath, delivered a personal apology to BP, saying the $20 billion fund that President Obama directed BP to establish to provide relief to the victims of the oil disaster was a "tragedy in the first proportion."

As criticism mounted in the wake of Joe Barton's apology to BP, R-BP Representative Steve King came to his defense. "I think Joe Barton was spot-on," King said on the conservative Laura Ingraham radio show.

Kentucky's R-BP Senate candidate Rand Paul leaped to the defense of BP, calling President Obama's efforts to hold the British company accountable for the Gulf Coast oil spill "un-American."

On a conservative radio show, Sharron Angle — the GOP-R-BP nominee for Senate in Nevada — called the Gulf oil spill victims' relief program a "slush fund." When a caller suggested the BP payout was extortion, she agreed, saying, "Government shouldn't be doing that to a private company." Her solution to the energy crisis is to "deregulate" the oil industry.

Representative Michele Bachmann [R-BP Minnesota] defended BP, criticizing the Gulf Coast oil spill fund — designed to aid spill victims — as a "redistribution of wealth."
