    ^^ If anything he said was misconstrued? How does anyone misconstrue his 'apology' to BP and claiming that they were the victims of a 'shakedown?'

    Wrapping up, Barton said: "I apologize. I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong, is subject to some sort of political pressure that is, again, in my words — amounts to a shakedown, so I apologize."

    What the heck just happened here? I have no idea. The man apologized and then apologized for the apology? That makes no sense.

    He apologized to BP for having to put 20 billion aside to put a dent in the cost of their fuck up.. Then, after it was reported he apologized for sucking BP's dick while at work!

    Why does Joe Barton hate America?

    You know what? 20 billion put into an escrow account will not hurt BP one iota. What will hurt them is the bad press and, hopefully, some boycotting. Watch their numbers go down when everyone decides not to frequent their outlets. THAT will hurt them, not some fund.

    20 billion will hurt them. More importantly, 20 billion will help many people whose lives and livelihoods have been damaged because of BP's actions. While I'd love to see BP go under and its execs forced to dumpster dive, that's not going to help restore the gulf.

    ahh the devil is in the details..

    it's 20 billion.. OVER 4 YEARS. That will barely put a dent into the cleanup and payback.

    Bets are now being taken as to whether BP manages to stay afloat that long.

    Apparently the Repub brass gave the committee members the marching orders to "not make an you tube moments"...ooops.

    Is anyone else amused by how convoluted and hypocritical the right argument is???? So first, gov't bad, safety regulations = socialism, the market should and will take care of any and all issues...now, apparently it's the government's job to pay for the clean-up (apparently it's some other government monies that should be used because taxes of any sort are akin to Hitler/Stalin/Joe the Plumber, I don't know because these people don't know the difference between different gov't structures) and holding the responsible party responsible for their negligence, evilness and fuckery is simply unAmurrikhan. Frankly, I'm just not stupid enough to follow this "thinking."

    20 B over 4 years is still a huge deal. Plus, that figure may well go up.
