Why is Obama calling BP "British" Petroleum? It's owned primarily by Americans after the Amoco merger?

He is playing into xenophobic politics. What a scumbag.

    BP doesn’t actually ‘stand’ for anything. The company changed it’s name from British Petroleum to BP. BP isn’t a UK company it is an international company. It shows an anti British sentiment calling the company British Petroleum when the company is not called that and isn’t even British any longer.
    I think it is showing how naive Obama is. It is disappointing that he is not trying to bring the world together in friendship and not split it up by poor decisions.
