    Information about their shady practices are all over net timeline...  It's like that company that didn't do a simple google check on that embezzler they hired from outta state-- 'DOH   REALLY? I'm shocked!'

    Unfortunately, I'm not.

      yet he exempted them from the requisite Environmental Impact Study to drill the Macondo Well in the Gulf of Mexico.

      Obama also, no doubt, knew about TEPCO's history of malfeasance, prior to last fall, when he asked Congress to give TEPCO a $4 billion loan guarantee to build two new nuclear reactors on the Gulf Coast of Texas.

        Lot's of bad acts and actors in this tragedy.  I'd be disappointed if that were true, but not surprised.

        Good news is that people get to change their minds and if the Dems do decide to champion this, they'll prevail. I can't imagine a political climate more leftist-friendly than we have right now.

        I predict Obama will coast into a second term. And while I was in Hilary's camp last time, he's got my vote this time. Frankly, the guy's done better than I expected.  The main difference between me and some supporters  is that I already accepted the 'bad news' about Obama long ago, and they haven't.

        OBAMA 2012.  The BASE is BACK.
