I couldn’t make this one up if I tried. You have to admit that this is not political smart regardless of your political ideology. BUT the Colorado Republican Congressional Candidate Cory Gardner is holding a fundraiser with BP Lobbyist and Rep. Joe Barton. (Mr. I’m Sorry)
Yes, I know, but this is not me saying this. Check it out for yourself.
On Thursday, Dan Meyer, a lobbyist for BP — the besieged oil company responsible for the biggest environmental disaster in U.S. history — will co-host a luncheon at Hotel George in Washington D.C. for the benefit of Colorado GOP congressional candidate Cory Gardner.
An official with the Dubernstein Group, Meyer serves on a BP account that has brought in $100,000 in lobbying fees during the first quarter of 2010.
He’s not the only Republican official hosting the $1,000-a-plate affair, but also Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN.) and Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN.) are participating as well.
Now I’ve listen to a guy who was telling me how he liked Marsha Blackburn and how she’s this and that. When I said I actually knew here he was surprised. I knew her when she was a Commissioner for the TN Film Commission back in the late 90’s. I really did not think too much of her then and even less of her now. BUT I guess she’s palling around with BP Lobbyist and Big Oil apologist and GOP wannabes now. That’s the GOP for you. They’ll tell you one thing and how outraged they are and pound their fist, kick and scream, then cozy up to the corporations behind closed doors. I wonder how surprised he’ll be when he learns of this. I’ll have to tell him since they won’t mention this on FOX News.
Conservatives can say what you want about me, each time you do it just proves my point. This is why I’ve given up on many of those who follow these guys and gals. You can’t tell them anything and when you do they get mad and resort to name calling and other immature demonstrations.
So say whatcha want about me, it still doesn’t change the fact that after the oil spill, made possible by deregulations, after Joe Barton apologizes to BP for what is there mistake, it is still alright for a Republican seeking to ‘get it’ to dine with BP Lobbyist and its apologists in the Grand Oil Party. You’ll find a way to place the blame on someone else anyway.
