    This is probably worse then we can imagine.




    especially since yesterday people watching the live feed of the oil seeping out saw another major eruption yesterday much worse then the first one.

    I can only hope all that blogger saw was a change in current that made it look worse.

    Just hope that the prez isn't in the pocket of big oil - because if he's not, he's going to use every last bit of tragedy against the oil industry as a weapon. That's what happened with nearly every other issue he's tackled so far.

    Hopefully this doesn't turn political, but if our prez had a set whatsoever he would have taken over control of the situation and bombed the site with a nuclear explosion, and the problem would have been solved. Russia has done that several times for similar oil situations, successfully. This situation did not need to get anywhere near as bad as what it is.

    Didn't mean it to be political; rather commenting on the way things have been functioning lately.

    It's not looking good, appearently he declared a moratorum on offshore drilling permits and waivers but more have been given out anyway.
