BP's chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg has been summoned to a meeting with President Barack Obama next Wednesday to answer questions about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, an official letter said
HOUSTON - Researchers studying the flow of oil from the blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico said Thursday that up to twice the amount of oil previously thought may have been spewing into the sea since an oil rig exploded nearly two months ago.
NEW ORLEANS - The Gulf of Mexico oil spill has brought out thousands of people who just want to help — though there isn't much for them to do unless they own a Hazmat suit.
There is no 100% method for keeping
the oil away from the beaches and inlets.
Waves and tides wash oil over those floating booms.
Hand clean up of the beaches is what we are faced with.
Hey BP, order more hazmat suits, respirators, Dawn liquid detergent, whatever is needed.
You made this slow motion mess. Not Obama. You clean it up

Sarah Palin Helping A Democrat?
Republican former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is a surefire fundraiser these days, you betcha -- for the Democratic Party. No wonder Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown has Palin at work in a new web ad to bulk up his campaign coffers.

The Buck Stops at BP's Desk
I am so angry about the Gulf of Mexico oil leak.
This slow motion nightmare by BP has
brought us to where no man has gone before. BP has the technology to drill but
not the technology to stop the leak.
The US government is not in the business of oil cleanup, repair, etc.., nor should it be.
BP broke it and it is up to them to fix it.
