I think a daily update should be added here – starting today.
It’s Sunday, Day #40 and the ‘Top Kill’ method of stopping the leak is not having any positive results. The spill is now the worst in US history and problems dating back to June of last year are being discovered. I guess its kind of difficult for Obama to criticize BP when he took so much of their money during the campaign.
“It is as enraging as it is heartbreaking, and we will not relent until this leak is contained, until the waters and shores are cleaned up, and until the people unjustly victimised by this manmade disaster are made whole,” he said.
I think its kind of ironic that the President makes the comment “we will not relent until this leak is contained” from his home in Chicago where he is enjoying his second vacation in a month.
If this goes to day #100 – Obama is finished! Let the countdown begin!
