BP Can't Win For Losing

President Obama's comments on the BP oil spill stabilization was loaded with a lot of "we's" when in fact it was all BP's actions that got the well capped.



Here's one of many examples:



"Either we will be able to stop the flow, or we will be able to use it to capture almost all of the oil until the relief well is done."



There is no "we" to it. Don't spent two or three months bashing on BP and then also hog their credit when they get the well shut down.

NEW ORLEANS — The federal pointman for the BP oil spill says results are short of ideal in the new cap but the oil will stay shut in for another 6 hours at least.



Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said on a Friday afternoon conference pressure readings from the cap have not reached the level that would show there are no other leaks in the well.



He said the test will go ahead for another 6-hour period before being reassessed to see if BP needs to reopen the cap and let oil spill out again.



THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

None of Intangible Child's posts had anything to do with the main post - the President joining in the credit for capping the spill.

She will be sure to reference something that happened 50 years ago that she thinks is relevant.

Republicans blamed Bill Clinton for the 1st recession under Bush, 9/11, the Iraq War, the housing bubble and crash, and the 2nd recession.

Carter really sucked. Really really really. Even worse than Daddy Bush. And he sucked pretty bad too.
