    Great!

    I'm still amazed at how many people don't know that when they spill gas all over the place (near the pump) they're responsible for it.

    BP, let's get this spill cleaned up.

    Little Luey,
    Are you fucking serious???? This is what happens when you let companies police themselves. We saw it in the financial world and now in the petroleum business. Greed is one of the 7 deadly sins for a reason!

    the law of irony is universal.

    I am disgusted by the real villain here - Obama. This manipulative opportunist is milking this tragedy for every ounce of political gain and fanning the flames of fear and discontent. An 11-year old can see that the oil spill tragedy is awful. But an 11-year old can also see that BP, its leadership and resources are all rallying around one simple goal - to end this spill and mitigate its negative effects on the environment and people's lives. Unlike other companies, such as Ford and Toyota, who engaged in inexcusable cover-up's and denials, BP is open, honest and transparent. How soon we forget that Ford knew that its Pinto would explode if rear-ended yet chose to remain silent because their lawyers told them it would be cheaper to pay claims than recall their defective product. Yet people still drive Ford automobiles!? It is easy to slam a foreign oil giant, as the biased American media is so focused upon. CNN and CNBC should show some balance in its reporting yet instead has chosen to act like schoolyard bullies. Their talking heads even show their visible scorn for any expert who attempts to offer a balanced perspective. I personally commend Mr Hayward. I hope he soon get's his life back. To the CEO, Board and all friends of integrity, I say Stand Strong. To Obama, I say, you're showing your true spirit now and it is ugly and profane. Obama and the other trouble-making political shysters will hopefully soon be long gone. If Ford and Toyota are worthy of life, then BP is worthy of commendation and another 100 years of being the best of breed.

    hah, nice catch! :)

    Stop making natural disasters and corporate screw-ups about politics. Whether it's Bush or Obama, there's clearly a problem with the American machination of government that neither party, nor president, have the resources to provide the solutions. While you tediously argue over which head of the same snake can't do something, the body of the snake moves along unaffected...

    Think...

    Thunderbaytwins....seriously??
    You couldn't be more ignorant if you tried.
  • Max Maxwell 5y

    spot on Thunderbaytwins. I am a Brit, and I suggest you do a bit more research instead of just sitting and listening to what your TV box tells you - courtesy Mr. Obama. I am really saddened by his behaviour almost as much as the spill itself. You guys know that spills like this and bigger happen elsewhere - right? Caused by Americans - right? Is it the word 'British' in BP that has you and your president confused?? Are you really so desperate to believe that no American could be involved in such an event?? Google it - dig a little deeper people, make an effort - and then make a statement. The focus your media have put on the 'B' in BP is offensive - even for them.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

    Nice catch on this shot and interesting commentary on 'blame'! As far as the actual incident is concerned there are only two important things now. Plug it and clean it up.

    Then the damn lawyers will have at it...
  • HondaSI 5y

    You do realize the BP stations arnt really owned by BP. They have a contract with whoever owns the stations in that area that they will buy the BP gas, and so get assigned the name BP. So everyone not buying BP isnt only hurting BP but business owners and regular workers as well..
  • Brad Bartkus 5y

    I guess Hayward got his life back. He went racing on his yacht!!! And Obama went golfing!!!!!

    Thunderbaytwins- Do you work for an oil company? The only reason they are being semi transparent (if that's what you call finger pointing) is because they have NO CHOICE. They got caught with their pants down, not following the rules, caused the biggest disaster in American HISTORY.... Yes they are going to have to PAY OUT THE ASS, as it should be. I don't care if they go out of business paying for their fuck up. Maybe they should stop paying people to make TV ads trying to make them look better, and start paying better people to figure out how to stop this well, because the ones they have on it are not being effective enough
