    We have all heard about rats leaving a sinking ship, but
    that wouldn't be unusual at all. No self respecting rat
    would want to stay on a sinking ship, and we wouldn't expect
    him to. Where I start getting suspicious is when a bunch
    of rats start abandoning a perfectly good ship.
    That's exactly what happened in the case of the Deepwater
    Horizon rig which went down in the gulf. Let's take a closer
    look at the rats.

    In my opinion, rat #1 would be Tony Hayward-
    Wouldn't a person be a rat "IF" he knew ahead of time(1) that
    a blowout could be imminent,and instead of warning people,
    he just saved his own ass? The chief executive of BP, Tony
    Hayward sold 223,288 shares of stock on March 17th -(2)
    By doing so he "avoided losing more
    than ($614,449) when BP's share price plunged.

    I am sure no one would use inside information to save themself at
    the expense of others, so we will just call it blind ass luck that
    made him, sell his stock.

    However, if he does turn out to be a rat instead of just being
    extremely lucky, rats run in packs, so we need to look at the rest of them.
    Part 2 tomorrow.

    Please say it ain't so. Tell me the progressive socialist kenyan is just
    lucky like Tony and not a rat.

    So it's your theory that BP officers knew the platform was gonna blow and all they did was sell some of their shares?

    Interesting.

    But what does this:

    have to do with that theory?

    Are you saying that 0bama sold BP shares before the thing blew?


    Given the amount of cash and shares Hayward has, 200,000 shares counts as petty cash. How much of his holdings as a percentage did he sell?

    This is, I think, a very confused partisan.

    EVen by the standards of the confused thinking of your typical partisan, this one is a tad confused.
