Now, we know how important it is for obama to get that perfect photo op wherever he goes.

BP bused in 100s of temp workers for Obama visit, state official says - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/ynews_ts2320 - broken link)

Quote:
Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts, whose district encompasses Grand Isle, told Yahoo! News that BP bused in "hundreds" of temporary workers to clean up local beaches.

"The level of cleanup and cooperation we've gotten from BP in the past is in no way consistent to the effort shown on the island today," Roberts said by telephone.
And what do you know - as soon as his three hours were up, that bused-in clean-up crew high-tailed it out of there.

Quote:
News of 11th-hour spruce-up brigade spread rapidly Friday afternoon and infuriated locals. One popular radio host, WWL's Spud McConnell, suggested that the Coast Guard and the White House may have been involved in setting up the "perfect photo op."
I have no doubt of that.

You have NOTHING FACTUAL supporting the allegation "the Coast Guard and the White House may have been involved in setting up the "perfect photo op" but in your usual MO you knew that, right?

So BP bussed in a bunch of temporary workers for a photo-op and the news exposes it. So why is it that you people recognize the hypocrisy and continue to support Big Oil. Shouldn't you be out-raged?

Just as you support the fantasy that Barack Obama is a good President.
