Gulf Spill continues – 40 Days and 40 Nights – why isn’t Obama building the barriers Jindall wants?
God Bless the Gulf Coast. Someone send for Noah. The oil continues to flow into the Gulf unabated and Obama still has BP ‘in charge’. Someone wake Darryl Issa up and let him know there is SERIOUS SHXT going on we need addressed.
…Top Kill” fix failed — sending officials scrambling back to the drawing board.
“This scares everybody, the fact that we can’t make this well stop flowing,” BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said on the 40th day of the leak that has already spilled as much as 40 million gallons of oil into the Gulf…

That could take as long as a week.

“If they can’t get that valve on, things will get much worse,” said Philip W. Johnson, an engineering professor at the University of Alabama….
