Will BP CEO Tony Hayward Be In Charge Much Longer?

After many public speaking gaffes, including the now infamous comment made last Sunday — “There’s no one who wants this thing over more than I do, I’d like my life back,” many are wondering if BP CEO Tony Hayward will be on the job much longer.

In an op-ed today, the Washington Post‘s Eugene Robinson asks bluntly, “Why is Tony Hayward still on the job?”

The New York Times
piles on:

Instead of reassuring the public, critics say, Mr. Hayward has turned into a day-after-day reminder of BP’s public relations missteps in responding to the crisis, which began six weeks ago and looks likely to continue well into the summer.

Do you think removing Hayward will change anything regarding the response efforts to the oil spill, or public opinion? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
