BP’s CEO Tony Hayward says, “Nobody wants this thing over more than I do. I’d like my life back.”  How sensitive, given the lives lost and ruined by his company’s tanker.  What a shame that he’s been inconvenienced.  Think Progress has a few of Hayward’s statements that show is utter tone deafness to what is happening.
