    ...starting now.  At this moment Big Oil execs are insolently refusing, before a congressional committee, to acknowledge that with $125 billion in yearly profits they really don't need the $2 billion tax breaks given them.  The GOP is backing them 100%.

    Jeez, what an opportunity for Obama--"The GOP will fight to the death for corporate welfare for Big Oil, yet they want to privatize Medicare and throw all our older generation to the wolves!"

    Pretty effective sound bite, but it has to be said, out loud, by the President, not just silently understood.
