So, apparently having failed to convince people that Obama's having gotten $20 billion out of BP was some sort of outrageous extortion, the Republican party is now going to claim that Obama actually gave them some sort of sweetheart corporate deal by agreeing to take their money.
The fact that they were all saying the exact opposite the day before means absolutely nothing to them. Really, there was never a bigger bunch of organized liars on the face of the earth.
