Chief of Staff Comments on BP CEO

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's chief of staff says BP chief executive Tony Hayward has committed yet another in a "long line of PR gaffes" by attending a yacht race in England while the Gulf oil spill disaster continues.

Hayward faced a fresh avalanche of criticism as news circulated Saturday that he was at a yacht competition around the Isle of Wight.

Emanuel says Hayward should stay focused with capping the leaking well and helping the people of the Gulf region.
