BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said that Hayward would step aside from daily involvement in BP's oil spill response.Let's admit that Hayward is as guilty as Osama bin Laden and works for a big, evil, capitalist foreign entity. he has been told that he is liable to criminal prosecution. Why must he be publicly shamed? What purpose is served by putting him through an auto de fe on the floor of Congress? Not the purpose of getting at the truth. It's to allow Congressmen to swan around, get their self-righteous on, and get their ugly faces on camera.
It's humiliating to me, as an American, to have these disgusting public servants posing and preening for all the world like the prosecutors of Law and Order. I have no doubt they are all crooks. Obama too, the big tough Chicago bully. His behavior is nauseating and not befitting the dignity of his office.
Peter DeVries once said that he had been taught in church to believe in the omnipotence and omniscience of God and the total depravity of man, and he still believed in one of those things. Me too.
