Posted on 06/01/2010 10:58:51 AM PDT by mdittmar
President Barack Obama on Tuesday used the strongest language yet to suggest that BP could face charges in connection with the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig and the resulting oil spill, saying if any laws were broken, my solemn pledge is that we will bring those responsible to justice.
The president met Tuesday morning with former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham (Fla.) and William Reilly, the Republican former head of the Environmental Protection Agency, the co-chairmen of a bipartisan commission tasked with exploring the causes of the disaster and safeguards for future offshore drilling.
If our laws were broken, leading to this death and destruction, my solemn pledge is that we will bring those responsible to justice," Obama said from the White House Rose Garden.

Start with the guy he sees in the mirror.
I’m sorry but when did BP get upgraded to being terrorists?

Unless of course it has to do with Immigration. Break those laws all you want! We pick and choose laws to enforce at our whim!!!
Does ANYONE still actually believe this guy anymore? about anything?
If I were employed by BP, this would certainly encourage me to take risks to get this under control /s
Justice huh? Leftist code word for taking other peoples wealth and re-distributing it.
This is a guy that believes that government is the seat of all power and all wisdom.
If a sparrow falls from the sky, someone somewhere needs to pay.
You stole my line...
That’ll work real great. When you can’t figure out what else to do—charge the people working on the problem with a crime. Just like the Stalinist he is.
Wasn’t that rig in international waters?
If you are asking me personally, the answer is, “No.” And I never believed him about anything to begin with either.
the iranians, north koreans, russians, and chinese laugh at him to his face, but, by GOD, he will bring BP to HEEL.
But I thought Obama accepted responsibility? I must be confused.
Impotent but putting on the macho act.
Oh joy, now we will have BP executives and senior operations staff relocating outside of the US to avoid prosecution while the disaster is still ongoing.
Wasnt that rig in international waters?......
No, Federal waters.
Sounds like Bammy has reasoned that Karl Rove is responsible for the BP explosion and leak with all the dynamite left over from destroying the World Trade Towers and New Orleans levees.
