“It’s a little too little
It’s a little too late
I’m a little too hurt
And there’s nothin’ left that I’ve gotta say
You can cry to me baby
But there’s only so much I can take
Ah, it’s a little too little
It’s a little too late” – Little Too Late written by Alex Call, performed by Pat Benatar
I saw a little bit of President Obama’s assurances to the US public that BP would get their comeuppance.
I wasn’t impressed.
I wanted to be.
But Mr. President?
“It’s a little too little. It’s a little too late”
Oh, sure. You get tough now. A week after BP CEO Tony Hayward started circulating his commercial apologizing to those affected by the disaster and pledging to clean up its mess.
I’m so disappointed.
In BP. In our President. In politics and big business.
This is a horrible mess that affects so many lives and livelihoods and precious resources and beautiful wildlife. This apology and tough love is coming a little too late.
And it smacks of politics as usual.
