Okay, here's the link to the first quarter records detailing who bought and sold BP stock.

It appears one Vanguard mutual fund was selling, and two others were buying. That would suggest that Vanguard was simply repositioning its funds, not actually selling off BP stock. Which would mean, they didn't have insider information. So the accusation against the President would be completely unfounded, heh?

BP Ownership, institutional ownership, 5 % ownership - MSN Money (http://moneycentral.msn.com/ownership?Holding=Mutual+Fund+Ownership&Symbol=BP - broken link)

Lol, and it was an index fund.

Nope, what I think happened, BO knew it was going to be blown up. The old leftist eco-terrorist trick to pass unwanted commie legislation.

Obama receives some 30 death threads every day. Following your logic they must be coming from the crazed insane right, no doubt.
