This is excellent messaging which also has the virtue of being true. The fact is, if the GOP (aka, the “Greedy Oil-company Party”) take back control of the House of Representatives this November, then Rep. Joe “I Apologize” Barton would be overseeing BP. More broadly, if Republicans were in charge, Big Oil would rule the roost, as would Wall Street and other wealthy, corporate interests. In short, if you want a new “Robber Baron Era” to
take hold in tighten its grip on this country, then you most definitely want to vote Republican this November. If, on the other hand, you prefer government that looks out for the “small people” (as BP calls them) once in a while, then you might want to think twice about that.
