oil largesse: fact & fiction

No politician has gotten more money from oil giant (and current bad behaving big evil corporation) BP than President Obama.

From Politico:
"During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records."
Meantime, as the Democrats continue to demagogue the Gulf oil spill, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is outspoken about the facts on the ground and the water.
"Eighty percent of the oil slick, as it's called and appropriately -- 80 percent is literally just sheen or film right on top of -- on top of the water. That is not toxic. It's not particularly damaging. I mean, we don't want it to come ashore in Mississippi, but it's manageable. It's a manageable problem.
"And I do think a lot of people in the country are being led to believe that this is already some gigantic catastrophe. Well, that's not the case."
