Culi da calciare-2

Butt stops here. O meglio, no. Un articolo da cui imparare diversi idioms ("foot in mouth", "buck stops here", buck->butt, etc.) sul povero disarmato Obambi-e-la-marea-nera.

Scapegoating has become a hallmark of this administration. Certainly BP was responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of Deepwater Horizon. But after an accident in federal waters the federal government, which has a plan to save the entire planet from greenhouse gases, had no plan to save the Gulf from a single gushing well, with the possible exception of finger-pointing. In this administration, "BP" stands for "buck-passing."
