LONDON — In what one environmentalist described as “yet another public relations disaster” for embattled energy giant BP, CEO Tony Hayward took time off Saturday to attend a glitzy yacht race around England’s Isle of Wight.
As social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook lit up with outrage, BP spokespeople rushed to defend Hayward, who has drawn withering criticism as the public face of BP’s halting efforts to stop the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
Spokeswoman Sheila Williams said Hayward took a break from overseeing BP efforts to stem the undersea gusher in Gulf of Mexico so he could watch his boat “Bob” participate in the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race. The 52-foot yacht is made by the Annapolis, Maryland-based boatbuilder Farr Yacht Design.
In reality Hayward was forced out on FRIDAY and essentially fired from his position controlling the cleanup efforts. So in essence he no longer has the responsibility for the oil clean up.  On the other hand… Barry has stated that he is taking full reposibility for the clean up efforts.  Where was Barry on Saturday?  Out golfing with Biden and a few other “friends”.

Still, hobnobbing with millionaires and their yachts is likely to be a hard sell in the Gulf, which is struggling to deal with up to 120 million gallons of oil that have escaped from the blown-out well. Oil has been washing up along the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida, killing birds and fish, coating delicate marshes and wetlands and covering pristine beaches with tar balls.
All while the tar balls are washing up on the “pristine beaches” Barry is playing with his own balls on the golf course. And he is still “In Charge”?  Barry is a waste.  So now we have waste in the gulf and a waste playing golf.
