Boy this guy's batting 1000 isn't he?

BP CEO: We Have Got To Stop This Spill -- I Want My Life Back!:

Tony Hayward announced over the weekend that while he's "sorry for the massive disruption" the oil spill has caused, "there's no one who wants this thing over more than I do."

"Y'know, I'd like my life back," he said. "So there's no one who wants this thing done more than I do, and we are doing everything we can to contain the oil offshore, defend the shoreline and return people's lives to normal as fast as we can."

Tell that to the people who's lives you've destroyed Mr. Hayward. He told the CNN reporter in the same press conference that they're doing a good job of containing the oil offshore. So let's see, first he said that the oil spill impact was "very modest". Then he admits that it is an environmental catastrophe.

But he's also saying that the sickened cleanup workers probably have food poisoning. Heaven forbid it's the toxins in the oil and dispersants that are making them sick. And he's denying that the giant underwater oil plumes exist.

We may need BP's engineers and experts to help get the oil well plugged but Hayward and their attorneys are doing nothing but damage control. Personally I'd rather be seeing this guy take a perp walk than doing any more television interviews.

Can you help us out?
