    Republicans, with your vote on Tuesday you put Joe Barton in charge of the House Energy subcomittee.

    Who is Joe Barton? He's the guy that apologized to BP on national televsion after they dumped 2 million barrels of oil in the Gulf.

    So you're ignoring the fact that Halliburton has also now been found liable? Your obsessional whining about BP is noted, and dismissed as obsessional whining.

    And.... BP are back in profit. Ha Ha!

    A private corporation subjected to a shakedown. Sounds about right.
    Shoot now, ask questions later.

    Good for Barton.

    Is he apologizing to a person for how he had been treated or is he apologizing to a company?
    can you be honest?

    That performance was a national embarrassment. Our representatives treated Hayward like a criminal. They were rude, made statements that had no basis in fact and all of it for political grandstanding.

    The way Americans reacted to the Gulf Spill was also embarrassing. Howling like a bunch of fucking banshees without bothering to wait for the facts to emerge. Sometimes, I am ashamed of my fellow Americans - and the BP fiasco was one of them.

    In the months since, there has been so much bullshit in the media that it's close to impossible to differentiate fact from supposition. But, the facts are there for anyone who prefers to comment from an intelligent, educated viewpoint.

    I am ashamed of you.

    BP has more environmental and safety violations than anyone. They have a corporate culture of not caring about the safety of their workers or the environment. This led to the death of 11 oil workers and the spilling of 2 million barrels of oil in the Gulf. And Barton apologized to the president of BP. Why? Because Barton used to work for BP and received enormous amounts of oil money in the form of campaign contributions.

    And yes, Hayward is a criminal. 11 people died.
