Presidential candidate Obama, would you be willing to meet with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and and Kim Jong Il?

“I would.”

*****
President Obama, have you spoken with the CEO of BP to discuss the oil spill in the Gulf?

No… when you talk to a guy like the BP CEO, he’s going to say all the right things to me. I’m not interested in words. I’m interested in actions.”

*****
That sounds more like a reason to avoid talking to a politician, but not an oil exec. Given the fact that Talker, Chicago Ranger recently expressed an interest in figuring out whose ass to kick over this oil mess, isn’t it a little strange that he’s passing up on the opportunity to take a very public in-person bootswipe at head of the company whose tragic accident further exposed the president as an aloof golf-o-crat who is incapable of grasping a problem that can’t be solved by intimidation, smear campaigns, boycotts, racially-charged accusations and wealth transfer?

My own theory as to why the president won’t meet with BP’s CEO is simple: Obama’s afraid that his opportunity for a public ass-kicking would also give BP a chance to very publicly ask for their money back.

In the meantime, if President Obama wants to know to kick ass, he should take some lessons, not to mention advice, from Sarah Palin.
