White House maintains line that BP should pay for all oil spill costs

Gibbs wouldn't comment on stock price, dividends or the PR campaign, saying that the White House is holding the line on BP paying for all costs of the spill. 

"If you've got the wherewithal to pay a dividend and you've got the wherewithal to finance a fairly expensive ad campaign, then you certainly shouldn't, as the president has said, nickel-and-dime anybody in the Gulf that has seen their livelihoods damaged as a result of this disaster," Gibbs said.
