    Firing the CEO is nothing but window dressing. Let the AG and the commission do thier investigations and then see what needs to be done.

    Another example of grandstanding by people and form over function.

    That it achieves nothing is neither here nor there (to the drooling fools), it's all about window dressing to them. They don't give a shit about reality - they're focused only on gestures and faux outrage.

    And It will, but let the comission and the AG do thier work first. Anything done now without proper investigation is feel good bullcrap.

    Apparently Tony is not suffering. This is part of what he told stockholders during a conference call today:

    BP chief to face investors, questions about job | cleveland.com


    Hayward reassured them they would receive a dividend this year. BP paid over $10 Billion in the each of the past two years. That's "Billion" with a "B". In a company now estimated to be worth a total of $112 Billion, another dividend that size would be almost 10% of its value -- money that should be tied up to pay for the clean up and to satisfy judgments in the lawsuits that BP will face.

    I say we extradict this "Brit" and throw him into a cell in Louisiana with no air conditioning. This man is GUILTY. In the meantime, let's at least demand that BP fire him. I don't happen to agree with martybegan but even if he's right, so what?

    I dunno about you, but I could use some cheering up -- and watching Tony pack up his crap and do the Walk Of Shame out of BP headquarters would cheer me up a little bit.

    The bp company will recover, this is small change to them...

    But will the Gulf ever recover or recover as quickly as BP, instead of decade or two, is still an unknown.
