    Obama Admin. “Huddled” with Industry Before Rules Released

    On April 12, EnergyWire‘s Mike Soraghan revealed that the Obama Admin. “huddled” with Big Oil before releasing BLM’s final rules, watering them down to suit the industry’s taste.

    Heather Zichal, deputy assistant to the president for energy and climate change, “met more than 20 times in 2012 with industry groups and company executives lobbying on the proposed rule,” according to Soraghan’s review of White House visitor records. “Among them were the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA), along with BP America Inc., Devon Energy Corp. and Exxon Mobil Corp.”

    it sounds a little like the word we used to use.  while a good euphemism is a thing of beauty to last forever, i think that i prefer the old term, "whoring."
