    But everything.

    He of course won't mention the spill. He does keep talking about wanting chained CPI.

    It is what is called the 'bully pulpit' of the presidency.

    He doesn't give a damn that Exxon used a pipeline built for one purpose decades ago for something completely different. Then it broke.

    He will be part of the whole 'make sure Exxon doesn't pay for this' process that was perfected after the Exxon Valdez.

    I'm sure some scapegoat will appear.

    No research by the government or media will be done on who thought it wise to use this pipeline for what it wasn't designed for.

    So Obama will keep smiling. Exxon gets it profits. And if this can be minimized, the big pipeline the oil companies want will still be built.
