    What was he going to accomplish even if he did not go and stayed "hard at work" all weekend?

    The answer: Nothing new.

    If you have a problem with Hayward's actions, you should be criticizing Obama's many outings, entertainment concerts and vacation.


    Remember:

    If you hold Hayward to the standard of no days off until this is fixed, I think that's fair and reasonable. I also think it's fair and reasonable to hold the person who says it's their responsibility to shut the oil leak down to that same standard.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You should try paying a little bit closer attention. This thread is about Tony Hayward, not President Barack Obama.

    And I'm not being sarcastic, Tony Hayward and every one of the evironmental criminals who had a hand in making the decisions to bipass safety regulations and practices SHOULD be in jail awaiting trial.

    Have a nice day.

    You should try being honest - Hayward and Obama are tied to this issue. If you criticize one, you should criticize the other. Have a nice day continuing your state of denial.

    I think Obama criticized Hayward from the 14th hole.

    That's the 19th hole.

    Nonsense. President Barack Obama had no hand in British Petroleum's decisions to bipass safety regulations and cut corners of industry safety standards, despite warnings from their own "experts" and those of their chosen subcontractors, in favor of profits. ALL responsibility for those decisions, actions, and the results fall squarely on the management of British Petroleum . No amount of repeated hogwash changes that reality.
