What about BP? More thoughts on the midterm election…

I would like to think that the election results last night had to do with Sarah Palin and the ruralists reasserting their fair share of a national consensus…

1. BUT, was a lot of it about money supporting an injured oil and gas former governor who  was simply pushed forward by  a BP  orchestrated cartel?

I would like to believe that Main Street and Wall Street interests here in America formed part of the coalition which fought for our national growth…

2.BUT, was part of it the fact that British creditors hold so much paper that they could exercise subtle pressures to make people stop the administration that chewed out the centerpiece of their economic all-stars — BP? 

I would like to see that Rand Paul and Rubio and Haley and Cantor show a real ripening of American diversity into the political process…

3. But, how much of their limited government philosophy is a desire to abdicate cultural maturity to the Brits again because of BP’s threatened status in the public eye recently?

I personally have set out many reasons why BP and the oil industry have got to be protected from the ravening and nationalizing interest I myself opposed in this process….

4. But has BP orchestrated a bought and paid for coalition of GOP oil-friendly officials and legislators who will let them continue to really fail in every honest measure and tell themself how successful they are?

I would like to think that the organization that pulled this off was homegrown and shows that America’s business lobby has not decayed as much as so many measures suggest about our management….

5. BUT, how much of this machine was made in the UNited Kingdom and not the USA?

For me every day is more or less a bad day. I will try to see the good and hope for the best.  But I still think we are in a self-destructive cycle. I am hopeful that the many good things, ideas and people in this country will find a way forward in this society.  However, I am not pleased that Obama’s administration handled the details the way they did with BP and left such a clear occasion for them to retaliate and find sympathy. I am sure nobody in the White House was ever more peeved with BP than I was. But I fancy that my own enraged and wounded approach was always more tempered with reason and civility. Those are qualities the British establishment sees in itself but rarely can be honestly said to have possessed. Keep your eyes out and find some descendant of Paul Revere because the British are always coming, have always been coming and always will be coming.
