Some perspective on oil politics

Just for some perspective, I thought I should point out three quick things.

First, BP donated more to democrats than republicans in the 2008 election.

Second, the top recipient of BP donations in 2008 was - you guessed it - Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm mmm mmm. Oh, and Hillary Clinton came in eighth.

Finally, Barack Obama received almost twice as much money from BP in 2008 ($71,051), than Bush did in the 2000 ($14,165) and 2004 (33,223) elections combined ($47,388).

So let's dispense with the - "The oil spill is George Bush's fault for being in bed with big oil" - talk, shall we?
