Obama’s campaign pockets stuffed with BP money

Politico, relying on The Center for Responsive Politics, reports that Barack Obama has collected more cash from BP than any politician in the last twenty years. That’s not a crime.

It is, however, a nice little tidbit to remember anytime somebody accuses Republicans of being in the pocket of big oil, etc. (It may also be the reason – along with his recent approval of some modest off-shore drilling plans – that the president has been so behind on the BP oil spill).

I wonder when the group that’s been smearing Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri) in tv and internet ads will now run the same ad against President Obama? I’m waiting.
