    At least that's what BP says and the current camera view shows.

    Never mind what BP says, what does Obama say? After all, he is in charge of everything isn't he?

    Edit: And I do mean EVERYTHING!!

    those who put all the blame on Obama for failing to fix the leak - should now give all the credit to Obama for fixing it.

    Like a band-aid on a corpse.

    So this is supposed to be an Obama victory? How much oil was allowed to flow into the Gulf? How much time was wasted? This is more like Obama's Iranian hostage crisis than anything else.

    for fixing it two months late? for assembling a crack team of NUCLEAR PHYSICISTS to solve the problem? that kind of credit?

    I'm just saying that THOSE people who decided to pin ALL the blame on Obama for the spill should NOW be giving him ALL the credit now that the spill has, for the time being, been fixed.

    Now, the obvious fact is that BP is the one almost entirely responsible for the spill and for the lengthy time it took to finally cobble together a solution (and yes they should get credit for finally cobbling together a solution). Beyond that, we can then look at those lawmakers and regulators that failed to insist that BP (and other companies engaging in deep-water drilling off US coasts) had sufficient safeguards in place before it started drilling.

    How many tonness of oil has been spewed out in the sea?
    And how many tonnes has been brought up from the sea?
    The difference is how many tonnes are left in the environment.

    Who will pay for the clean up? Til the last drop?
    Who will pay for the damage to businesses and tourist industries?
    BP? I believe that when I see it.

    don't ask me - ask those people who insisted on blaming mostly Obama for the oil spill.

    well, by now you should know that obama is the root of all evil, for he is a statist.

    he is frequently exposed as an extremist by glenn beck, do you think he lies?

    oh no....we mustn't insist that BP pay for any of this. You see, that would be a shakedown. No, sir. We must apologize to BP for the not bowing before His Royal Oiliness.

    Behind every statist, there is someone who generously funds that statist. Follow the money.

    As for Glenn Beck, he's been exposed so frequently, he should think of becoming a porn star.
