With the Obama administration promising to make sure that the cozy relationship between the government and the oil industry is changed , to ensure that accidents, such as the one going on in the Gulf right now, never happen again. We should be asking if the Obama administration should be doing the investigating , or if they should be the ones investigated.
British Petroleum has donated millions of dollars to many campaigns on both sides of the aisle. But the largest single donation in the past twenty years went to the Obama presidential campaign in the amount of $ 77,051 .
There are also rumors out there that the EPA gave certain safety exemptions to BP shortly after President Obama took office.
So the question is, should the Obama administration be the ones pointing fingers at the cozy relationship, it would seem as if the Obama administration is fairly cozy with the oil industry themselves.
