2) Greenberg's consulting firm was a prime architect of BP's recent rebranding drive as a green petroleum company, down to green signs and the slogan "Beyond Petroleum."
Greenberg's company is also closely tied to a sister Democratic outfit -- GCS, named for the last initials of Greenberg, James Carville, another Clinton advisor, and Bob Shrum, John Kerry's 2004 campaign manager.
Greenberg, Carville and Shrum
Greenberg Carville Shrum is a U.S. political consultancy and strategy company.
Greenberg Carville Shrum worked for Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada, who won Bolivia's 2002 presidential election. However, he was forced to resign in 2003.
Rahm Emanuel's butt is fried or is it fired....... isn't that an anagram?
Top Democratic Party consultants connected to the Obama White House have profited from advising politicians in South America who have long-term economic ties to British Petroleum.
Perhaps the best-known instance was in Bolivia, where the consulting group GCS worked to re-elect as president Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada, popularly known as "Goni."
GCS is an acronym formed from the last names of the principals – pollster and Democratic Party political consultant Stanley Greenberg; James Carville, a long-time political consultant to former President Bill Clinton; and Bob Shrum, manager of Sen. John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.

Rosa De Lauro, D-Conn.
