The Big Question: Should Barton step down over BP apology?

Barton was forced to apologize but is clearly unapologetic in his defense of the oil industry, from which he has collected more than $1 million in the last two decades. He didn't make a gaffe, or confuse anyone with his statement and strong views -- he apologized to BP, called the president's request a "shakedown" and said the matter was a "tragedy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just announced: Barton will resign his leadership post.
