BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama
Bp must have onehelluva crystal ball if they've had their eye on Obama for 20 years. Back in the real world, you'll find that the oil industry (BP included) has given far more to Republicans than Democrats.
This industry, which includes multinational and independent oil and gas producers and refiners, natural gas pipeline companies, gasoline service stations and fuel oil dealers, has long enjoyed a history of strong influence in Washington. Individuals and political action committees affiliated with oil and gas companies have donated $238.7 million to candidates and parties since the 1990 election cycle, 75 percent of which has gone to Republicans.
Btw.....did you know that in 2008 Obama recieved more money from the oil and gas industry than any other candidate.............except John McCain.
