    if he wants to blame someone, he might want to look at BP. It's not like Obama made that decision for no reason.

    After reading the article, he seems like a poor CEO, he needs to look in the mirror first.

    Seems like he risked it all on deep water drilling and that didn't pan out. Isn't that part of the capitalist system? Taking risks? I don't remember any guarantees that if you start a company you will make billions. Quit whining and try again or retire. Seems many other oil companies survived somehow.

    If you own an oil company and cannot stay afloat at the level oil has now reached, you do not deserve to be in business. Let dying companies die. I bet the asshole wants a bail out on behalf of the taxpayer while he drives around in a rolls.

    Bingo

    Of course Obama's an easy scapegoat during election season; if you lean to the right or simply don't like the guy and found yourself in trouble, go to the media and blame Obama. Do whatever you can to help the other party's cause.

    Just be sure not to blame President Obama the next time you're filling up your tank and gas is at $4.50 a gallon, Mr. CEO.
