1.) Looking Out For #1 - BP's announcement that they're taking responsibility for the response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, not for the accident, sounds more like they're patting themselves on the back. The company offered settlements to coastal residents of no more than $5,000 if they give up their right to sue.
2.) Greenwashed - BP's green logo and multimillion-dollar green rebranding are meant to fit in with the company's motto of going "beyond petroleum." But this has just distracted from years of a horrible environmental record. In the first quarter of 2010, they made $73 billion in revenue, $72.3 billion of that came from the exploration, production, refining and marketing of oil and natural gas. Only $700 million came from solar and wind energy.

Don't forget that they were a $$$HUGE$$$ campaign donor for Barack Hussein Obama! But then again, that's not as much of a secret as it is just ignored by his adorers.

BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Wow! It even looks like they gave more than twice as much as they did either time Bush ran!
