Skip to comments.Gibbs: Obama hasn't talked to Hayward because BP board calls the shots
Posted on 06/09/2010 6:26:32 PM PDT by Nachum
When President Obama was asked by NBC's Matt Lauer why he had not yet called the CEO of BP about the Gulf oil spill, he said he assumed CEO's just told presidents things they wanted to hear.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had another answer.
Gibbs said Obama hasn't called CEO Tony Hayward because -- according to what Gibbs called the "executive structure of corporate governance" -- the CEO alone isn't the final word on company decisions, which are made by the board of directors.

What utter BS. Zero said he didn’t mind negotiating with Iran but he won’t meet with CEO of BP... maybe if the head of BP were a black and/or Muslim then zero would have met with him.
All zero knows is to follow Alinsky and Alinsky didn’t preach how to actually solve problems - just how to create them.
So who the hell has Salazar been giving orders to at BP?
In all my years I have never seen or heard a president behave the way 0 does. Today's Wall Street Journal absolutely nails it.
Robert Gibbs, the coolest and most sexy man in the world!
Someone else said it, he is deliberately letting this thing get out of control while blaming others and plotting how to use this to HIS ends.
“Alinsky didnt preach how to actually solve problems - just how to create them.”
Unfortunately the quarterly board meeting conflicted with the Paul McCartney night. However, Obama has cleared his calendar for the next quarterly board meeting.
Fortunately they’re fooling fewer and fewer. I saw on another post where even DemocraticUnderground is furious at the WH. The lower he sinks in the polls, the more Obama parties.
Yeah, that’s the ticket, Obama. If people see you partying every other day, they’re sure to love you, right? /s
Some of them are probably on his 'staff'.
I work for a Fortune 500 company that everyone would know if I spelled out their three letter "name" Believe me, oh please believe me, If we did something like BP, our CEO would have his door removed! Our CEO would damn well be talking to the president every minute between senior staff meetings.
Willful malfeasance indeed! Absolute, low down black liars are Zero's lackeys - and their is only one person on this planet with the power to force these staffers to lie.
Impeachable offenses, every g*# Da%n day with these people
Lmao! that was great :)
This administration is Who’s On First ..on steroids .
First Barry makes a huge mess with his Miss Cleo act -
“ I already know what Hayward will say, so I don’t have to speak to him. “
Then Gibbs compounds it with his usual moronic Gibberish .
This is unbelievable.
Hmmm...visual image forming...
I agree Gibbs is a dolt....BUT, I’m glad I don’t have to go before the public and try to explain and make sense out of POTUS comments!
One can only imagine the Bush-Bashing-Bonanza had Bush been President and said something like that.
So then firing Hayward would be just as ineffective as everything else 0bama’s done.
