Consolidation Thread: Matt Simmons is dead

As per CNBC....died of a heart attack in his home....after how outspoken he was against the BP oil spill, you would have to wonder....the timing certainly raises some questions.

Update - 12PM

many sources say heart attack and not drowning.

"you would have to wonder"

because everyone mirrors your thoughts?

Wow! Shocker, since I just

Wow! Shocker, since I just heard him on King World News last week! I thought it was an interesting interview - did not agree with his assessment about evacuating the whole gulf region if there's a hurricane.

Debbie

It was probably all that nonsense he was sputtering

that drove up his blood pressure and his old ticker just can't take any more of it.

I bet he was mouthing off about how evil BP is as he croaked.

I have no sympathy for CFR hacks. Sorry.

Actually there is No Evidence of BP

Actually there is no evidence showing BP its employees or otherwise donated to President Obama en masse.

Outside of Fox news hack Brian Kilmeade stating that BP gave $750 Million which would amount to Obama's total amount raised for the 2008 presidential campaign.

The top donors to President Obama's 2008 Campaign were as follows:

  • University of California........$1,591,395
  • Goldman Sachs...................$994,795
  • Harvard University..............$854,747
  • Microsoft Corp..................$833,617
  • Google Inc......................$803,436
  • Citigroup Inc...................$701,290
  • JPMorgan Chase & Co.............$695,132

Au Contraire

BP may not have been one of the main Donors, but Obama received more money from BP than any other individual politician. (and BP is not a US owned company)

"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, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees — $2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

On top of that, the oil giant has spent millions each year on lobbying — including $15.9 million last year alone — as it has tried to influence energy policy.

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."

It is my Understanding the Way

It is my understanding that the way BP gets around FEC prohibitions is by anchoring its American business operation under a subsidiary chartered here in the states.

My answer was

My answer was in response to the comment that BP gave the most to President Obama, of which is false.

I realize you went to a government school, but even someone of your caliber should realize that $77,000 is not more than $990,000.

As I see it

"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."

I took this to mean that the FEC reports only reflect $$ to his campaign, which one would think would be much more than he received personally.

He had a heart attack in his hot tub

and drowned late Sunday evening.

Hot Tub

At least he had a hot tub to drown in. When you gotta go, go in style I guess.

go it......then no suspicions......

...

Maybe

he choked to death on his own lies.

He certainly spewed enough of them.
I'm not going to shed any tears for this CFR hack.

Same here BigT...

Lot of folks at DP fell for his crap!

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

Tell us how you really feel, T....

Did he drive himself to the park?

(Without his keys)? Then shoot himself in the head and throw his gun thirty feet away from his body. Oops, sorry. That was Vince Foster...you know, the guy that was bopping Hillary...

If I was the guy bopping Hillary

I would'a shot myself twice too. Bill was smart enough to only make that mistake once and then look elsewhere.

Or the DC Madam

Who by all accounts was in good spirits when she went to the shed and hung herself.

Jim Rogers

I remember this...

The most notable part seems that women almost as a steadfast rule do NOT hang themselves. Never guns either. They prefer less mess/pain like pills and/or running the car in the garage. I think this woman actually said on a radio show just before that that she would not be committing suicide and that if she was said to have that everyone should know it was not.

"Do you want to know who you are? Act. Don't ask. What you DO will delineate and define you." - Thomas Jefferson

The TV told me

she hung herself, so that's what happened. No thinking required.

I guess that makes Hillary

a 'Praying Mantis'.

Or a "black widow..."

:) Either way she is a psychopath (like the lot of them) and not only does she know what is best for our chldren, she knows what is best for everyone....

Link to CNBC article??

I see where they claim drowning below, but no link or search on msnbc will pull up the heart attack claim?

I was watching CNBC when they broke in

with "breaking news" ....they said heart attack.
