LeMieux tells colleagues to support Obama, quit worrying about BP

by Dara Kam | May 4th, 2010

Republican U.S. Senator George LeMieux urged his Congressional colleagues to support the President Barack Obama’s administration, BP and others working on the Deepwater Horizon disaster and worry about whether the oil giant has done enough to mitigate the disaster later.

“Whether or not the government or British Petroleum have done all they can is an issue that will be sorted out through the various investigations that are already underway. Our number one priority needs to be focusing all of our efforts on stopping the oil spill from becoming larger. It threatens the environment; it threatens our economy; and it must be stopped,” said LeMieux.

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is pushing a bill that would vastly expand the amount of money BP and other oil companies would have to pay for oil spills, currently capped by federal law at $75 million. Nelson, a Democrat, wants the cap raised to $10 billion.

    Good thing LeMieux will be unemployed come Nov. He is a closet socialist like his buddy Charlie Gay Crist

    You are a loser and a disgrace. Please do us all a favor and move out of the country. I’ll even fund your moving costs.

    Right, Citizen

    God forbid that a GOPer actually wants to work together with others to get things right rather than fight the messenger. If it was all left up to you and people like Rubio we’d be spending all our time blaming Obama and trying to undermine him while we sat back and watched all our sea life die and our beaches become permanently poluted.

    Calling Crist names really adds to your argument.

    Clean up the mess first. Cast aspersions and blame later.

    Agreed LeMieux, I have been waiting for somebody to stop pointing fingers and get moving on this. Let’s get this stopped and then all of you politicos can whine and complain about who’s fault it is for the rest of your lives as far as I care.
    Citizen- that is one thing that YOU will never be, whoever you are.
