Listen carefully the next time "your representatives" open their mouths...
Hard-core conservative McConnell defended his vote to keep giving $2B in federal welfare to Big Oil in a quarter when Big Oil profits hit $36B, with 20 million Americans unemployed, by saying it would defend the US from Chavez! I kid you not; some people actually believe this stuff.
Considering that Chavez is the guy who keeps faithfully selling oil to us and who gave discounted or free gasoline to the American poor a couple years back, while Tony Hayward was CEO of BP when BP poisoned the Gulf of Mexico, the question for the day is:
Who is a better friend of the US – Chavez or Tony Hayward?
