I expected a drilling from Congress to bp executive Tony Hayword but instead Texas representative Joe Barton comes out and apologizes to bp for the White House request that bp set aside $20 billion dollars to the victims of the gulf oil disaster and the clean up of the beaches and marshes. I can’t understand some republicans when they can visibly see the damage being caused to gulf families yet feel compelled to apologize to bp in behalf of a U.S. Congressman. Rep. Joe Barton why don’t you go to work for bp and start another oxdung public relations team in behalf of the oil spill?
