What is a witch hunt, if it's not what politicians are now doing to the BP CEO?

  1. A CNBC commentator said the questioning in the live hearing is "embarrassing".

    Hayward seems shocked by the amount of affront in the questions, but I don't think he is withholding useful information.
  2. Congress-the epitome of self interest- acts as if BP willfully chose to create a disaster threatening the very sustainability of the company itself.

    Thing that pushed the limits of decorum (and I turned off the tv after that) was that f*n Democratic redneck telling him that "in this country, a shakedown means ... I don't know if it means the same thing in England" crap!

    Who was that asshole anyway?
  4. Just now. The questioning is still going Nowhere (capital N), and a NY congressman gets on, and says "I'm going to try to ask again some of the questions asked by my colleagues ." Unbelievable.
  5. Are you referring to Joe Barton (Republican) and his claims of a Govt shakedown.
