Cave-In

Is it any surprise that the Obama Administration has once again talked the talk but then walked away from doing the right thing? Evidently the investigation into the Upper Big Branch mine disaster was thorough, balanced and set up a criminal case against Massey Energy that was, to use the immortal words of George Tenet, a slam dunk for the Justice Department's prosecution. But it was not meant to be. It was all much too scary for the weak-kneed "centrist" Obama administration, facing a stiff re-election campaign, so justice for the dead miners and their grieving families will have to wait for...oh never mind. Don't bother waiting. It ain't gonna happen, not under the administration of what Cornell West has rightly labeled the "Black Mascot for Corporate America."
