How could we forgot Joe Barton’s apology to BP last week about them having to pay $20 billion to handle damages in the gulf? Republicans quickly forced Barton to apologize for his apology, but Barton showed yesterday on twitter how sincere that apology was. The tweet was soon deleted, but not before the media got a picture.
Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) promoted an article on Wednesday on his official Twitter account by a writer who backed his criticism of the government’s handling of BP.
Barton’s office posted a letter to the editor from the conservative American Spectator magazine suggesting “Joe Barton Was Right” in his criticism of the government’s decision to force BP to set up a $20 billion fund to pay out damages to victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
