Obama Over-Reach and Crisis Creation

Game-playing. Create a crisis, blame someone else, and grandstand like a peacock.

The Obama Administration ratcheted up its demands on Wednesday that BP PLC cover all costs stemming from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, including millions of dollars in salaries of oil-industry workers laid off because of the federal moratorium on deepwater drilling. --WSJ

One could (ad arguendam) posit that BP is solely responsible for the Transocean rig's explosion and the subsequent spill, therefore BP is responsible for oil damage to fisheries, beaches, (etc.), and perhaps BP should pay wages to its own workers and those of others on the rig (Transocean, Halliburton, etc.)

But "ALL" Gulf oil-workers?

It was Obama, Teh LightWorker, who shut down ALL Gulf drilling, not BP.

Of course, there is a Crisis to create. And Obama's doing a very good job of it.
