I’m not saying I like it but from everything I’ve seen BP CEO Tony Hayward played Congress easy. The sub-committee panel chaired by Bart Stupak showed that they were little more than petty,precocious and pathetic.
Pundits decrying Hayward’s evasiveness are failing to realize he performed the role he was cast in. The Congress Critters wanted to put on a show and the multi million dollar man showed up and took the licks. After a while it became obvious that he wasn’t going to give the panel his blood and that enraged them further.
Congressional panels of inquiry are pretty much always a waste of time and tax payers money. This one proved to be no exception.
