    Credit for what? The fact that it took 3 months and it is a mess?

    Never.

    I can hear the speech now:

    "Our administration took on a crisis of massive proportions that was created over the span of 8 years, and were able to reverse the damage within 3 months."

    Can we have like five minutes without making this political and just be happy about the fact that leak has stopped? And let's pray it remains stopped.

    Nahh.. I say lets politicize this one, and leave the other 12 threads as prayer meetings. :tongue:


    I say he is going to go hide for a few days just to see how it goes, and then he will come out and pat himself on the back.

    Mmmmmmmm...........we could, but within 5 minutes of the spill, Keith Olbermann was preaching about the need for climate change legislation and how Bush allowed this all to be deregulated. So.....nah, after all this is a "political" message board.

    But seriously, I expected Obama to be taking credit for it by now.

    You all have forgotten what the president assured us in that speech last month that everyone panned:

    And in the coming weeks and days, these efforts should capture up to 90 percent of the oil leaking out of the well...

    And he delivered!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know, I saw this early this morning, and surprise surprise, it wasn't all over the news. The news is still doom and gloom (and remember, Obama tried to stop it until they'd "tested" it) but the fact of the matter is, they stopped it.

    I saw my son last weekend and he was all worked up (after watching YouTube ceaselessly for who knows how long) because what he was reading was that it was the end of the world. Honestly. He said it was destroying the coast there and would ultimately destroy the world, I think. Because a bunch of yahoos on YT said so.

    The truth is the coastal residents are pissed as hell at the press because tourism has fallen off and most of them are suffering NO adverse effects of the spill.

    Meanwhile, the oil stopped. Good.

    They will still go ahead with the relief well and cement downhole. The are going to produce the well till then once the test is done.
