What happens if they can't get this oil spill cleaned before hurricane season and a hurricane moves across the area?

We are already seeing a problem. Seas were 10-20 feet near the oil slick. It destroyed some of those floaty things used to keep the oil from getting away.

I believe that the government is scared to tell us how bad this oil spill really is.

Isn't it funny how quiet the government is being on this? Wonder if they worry this will be Obama's Katrina

The first attempt is fail blog material. The oil balls are washing up in Lousiana and Alabama. The news said that they will investigate if this oil came from the rig. Well, where the **** else is it coming from? Joe's garage?

Well today Obama made a little speech that the media ate up about how he was "disappointed" that BP and Haliburton are pointing fingers. Aren't you doing the same thing Mr. President? Nice little kick at Haliburton there. I am so glad he is worried about cleaning it up.....oh wait :lazer:

Cleaning it up is priority #2. Priority #1 is not to get blamed.
