Tony Hayward never lies.
If you believe that one I have some nice oily swamp land for sale.Benefits of owning oily swamp land.
(1) Mosquito free.
(2) Don't have to use fishing pole to catch fish.Just pick them up.
(3) Don't have to worry about illegals sneaking onto your land.
(4) Don't have to buy expensive suntan lotion. Just wade through your oily swamp to become naturally protected from ultaviolet radiation.
(5) Your property taxes will go down dramatically and will continue to drop for many years to come.
Come on, what is Hayward supposed to say "Geeeze guys it looks like we flucked?"
He has to give positive spin...And you have to be able to realize that because the big players do and they ultimately will decide where this goes based on their perception of what is really going on.
One problem here, "the cost of the oil spill is eminently manageable" how can you say the cost of the spill is manageable when they can't even give the correct estimate on the rate flow of oil coming out? Once again, a paid media message from the special interest to just pump up the stock. I will believe this story when it really happens. I believe some1 mentioned early on the government halted the banks from paying their dividends. Timing is everything.
Of all the things BP has said in the last month I believe this one the least. They have cleaned up almost nothing, they don't have the leak plugged, and the government could make them stop paying a dividend just like it did with the banks. This also makes no mention of the tens of thousands of lawsuits BP will be facing shortly.
<<<government could make them stop paying a dividend just like it did with the banks.>>>>
You idiot short goverment can stop banks because they got tarp money from Gov BP is not getting any TARP money. Man I hate these kind of short Liars, Feer mongring to make a penny.
