E.P.I.C. F.A.I.L.

What really angers me today is a technician who has been working on the "top kill" project (I reported it this morning) said Saturday the effort never came close to succeeding because the pressure of oil and gas escaping from the well was simply too powerful to overcome.

He added that BP engineers lacked a complete and thorough understanding of the inner workings of drill pipe casing or blowout preventer mechanisms to make the effort a success.

I don't know what it will take for Team Obama to pull themselves out of the blur and stop counting on BP and Dr. David Chu to stop the deteriorating mess in the Gulf of Mexico.

Maybe Obama will finally "get it" after the American people throw him out of office in 2 1/2 years?

I have to say the Friday Obama film footage- with him on a freshly cleaned beach & a few pea sized tar balls seemed like a big whitewash.
How about a photo op with a stack of 316 dead pelicans, 207 dead sea turtles & 22 dead dolphins?
Come on! That IS the truth, the reality of the situation. I hope someone takes time lapse photos of the marsh grasses as they are enveloped in oil & how they die off.

Not that I am wanting gory photos, but this is what is really happening there.

The tiny tar ball scene was BS.

I did not appreciate how they played the "just a little dirty card".

This is a crime scene & criminals need to be arrested.

If the Obama admin were smart, they would seize the assets of BP before their legal teams find slimy ways to hide money.
Besides, the people who lost livelihoods need the cash to start flowing now (1 month out of work already).

I'm sure BP is too busy floundering to be able to start compensating people for their losses.

Don't think the banks will hold off on foreclosing if they don't get their $$.
