Prager H1: Obama and BP

Prager H1: The President has been criticized for comparing the Gulf Oil Spill to 9/11. This criticism is not fair. He never made a one-to-one comparison. But criticizing him for demonizing BP is fair. Driving this oil company to bankruptcy and suspending all offshore drilling will not help us; it will hurt us. Nor will we be helped by the utopian wish to “move us off oil.” Our economy depends on petroleum and will for a long time. That’s reality. Hallmark Cards caves in to a silly complaint by NAACP. More BP: Obama wants the British company to pay wages for all the workers who lose income because of his off-shore drilling ban.
