I’m sure Obama will fly down there tonight in a superhero suit to stuff it full of his magical basketballs....

Sad, sad, sad. I wish they could almost do an ‘angioplasty’ type procedure on the damned thing to stop it up.

All morning CNN has been in ‘damage control’ mode covering Obama and slamming BP at every sentence.

Suddenly, no more coverage of the oil spill catastrophe.

Amen. I have friends who have canceled their vacations. It’s going to kill EVERYTHING in the surrounding states.....from wildlife to the economies and families. Just makes me sick. :(

We have a little restaurant in our town that drives to the gulf every week to fill up their truck with fresh seafood. It’ll kill their biz.

WHAT? This can’t be. Obama said he was on top of the situation and has been since the very first second this whole CATASTROPHIC event began.

This is his Chernobyl.

Well the word is Obama has told all of his henchmen that he is going to bring criminal charges against the heads of BP...methinks this is their answer to him...from what I am hearing on the ground they hate Obama and think he is a total goon moron.

Build a huge steel plate, carry it out to sea with those huge choppers, lower it unto the well until it is crushed into the seabed. Then drop dirt on top of the plate til the whole mess is buried.

has anyone heard any estimates on how long the spill would continue if no action was taken. Won’t it stop on it’s own eventually if the pressure equalizes as the oil flows out?

Are there any websites that show comparisons of the leak at different times? It does indeed look worse(just checked the video at www.bp.com). It also appears to be from a different depth and angle than before, so hard to tell for certain.

It's really time to say a little prayer folks...Hurricanes will be lining up soon. 11 people have died. Thousands are out of work and critters are in harms' way.

Just say a little one.

As far as Obama...Just like Ft. Hood, the panty bomber, Faisal in NYC, the coal disaster....He doesn't give a damn...Everything he does is for his socialistic mindset...not "FOR THE PEOPLE".

He's insane!!!!

Thank politicians and eviornmentalist for forcing people to drill deep and the middle of nowhere instead of closer in shallow waters.

Stupidity in the name of the environment IMO.

It’s unfortunate that BP hasn’t been able to stop the leak at this point, but I think more effort (and media coverage) should be focused on preventing the spread of the oil. There are several untried options out there. This is where the Obama admin has true responsibility.

They need to insert a refrigerant coil into the well, pump seawater into the well around the coil (using the already installed mud pump) and then pump refrigerant through the coils to freeze the seawater in place, enabling them to then cap the well with concrete.

Sounds so simple it may just work.

I was thinking more of a long sticky fibril type material that could clot up the leak long enough to put a permanent cap on it.

This is the third time in three days that the media has announced it failed, I guess they’re going to keep at it until they finally get it right. The actual news conference is at 2pm PDT, in about 25 minutes. What Doug apparently said this morning is that the effort hasn’t stopped the flow. Stopping the flow isn’t going to happen until the well is under control, which would be the last step of Top Kill. The more important issue is how far down the well they’ve been able to push the mud, and how much pressure reduction they’ve monitored. They said last night that it’d be 24 to 48 hours before they had a handle on whether it was working. We’ll see if Suttles has anything to offer that actually changes that during the press conference.
