We have several stories about BP; the losers and the winners, if there are any losers and winners plus two videos that we all can share in. While Obama is off on another vacation and leaving the dearly departed men and women alone on this very momentus day, I suppose Obama is granted the day of LOSER.
COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A risky procedure is failing to stop the oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, and BP said Saturday it is considering scrapping it in favor of yet another method to contain the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
The comments from BP PLC chief operating officer Doug Suttles came amid increasing skepticism that the "top kill" operation—which involves pumping heavy drilling mud into a crippled well 5,000 feet underwater—would halt the leak. It's the latest in a series of proposed solutions BP has tried—including a gigantic box placed over the leak and a tube inserted to siphon the oil away. Both of those ultimately failed.
The top kill began Wednesday, and "to date it hasn't yet stopped the flow," Suttles told reporters at Port Fourchon. "What I don't know is whether it ultimately will or not."
If the top kill fails, BP would cut off the damaged riser from which the oil is leaking and cap it with a containment valve that's already resting on the seafloor. BP is already preparing for that operation, Suttles said.
Since the top kill began Wednesday, BP has pumped huge amounts mud into the well at a rate of up to 2,700 gallons per minute, but it's unclear how much is staying there. A robotic camera on the seafloor appeared to show mud escaping at various times during the operation. On Saturday, the substance spewing from the well appeared to be oil, experts said.
BP has also tried several times to shoot assorted junk into the well's crippled blowout preventer to clog it up and force the mud down the well bore. That, too, has met with limited success. [...] go read the rest
It's good that Obama went on vacation after that very much staged operation that took Obama on his galant diatribe of "I am in control" mantra. Folks are in fact saying that the trip wasn't a set up but the picture below tells another tale. Look at this wannabe in control kind of a guy messing with the sand...
I call the photo, "Obama dicking with the sand". Not staged. OK. I get it. Do you see any oil? I suppose the sea shells are quite the attraction.
BP Denies Staging Beach Clean-Up Effort for Obama Visit - yes. I see.
Krauthammer Names the Big Winner & Loser in Oil Spill Fallout - there are winners and losers here? What about the oil spill? Is anyone cleaning it up?
And let us not forget to knock off all the oil drilling so we can get some more of that mysterious global warming crap. OK?
So where is the global warming crap? I guess Obama has it in his briefcase on vacation.
