BP, Thy Name Is Left-o-Wacky

BP, the Progressive-Friendly Profiteer.

Lobbying records show that BP is no free-market crusader, but instead a close friend of big government whenever it serves the company’s bottom line.

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.

Almost like GE!

As expected, the reporter was Tim Carney (not Helen "the JOOOOOOS" Thomas, not Chris "the Tingle" Matthews)---
