BP faces another setback; oil slick threatens Florida

Full story: TwinCities.com

The BP oil slick drifted perilously close to the Florida Panhandle's famous sugar-white beaches Wednesday as a risky gambit to contain the leak by shearing off the well pipe ran into trouble a mile under the sea when the diamond-tipped saw became stuck.

They need to set off explosives by the well which will collapse the well and seal it. This has been done many times and it works. Why won't BP and Obama use their heads?

Why a setback for B P? Obama has taken over responsibility for fixing this oil spill, so why can't he pay for it out of his stash? Oh wait, he's got his foot on the throat of B P and cannot get to his stash without letting B P up. Bummer.

Just wait till they find one dead bird on Sanibel or Captiva - they'll act like it's the end of the world.

Is there a chance this could have been resolved any sooner? Yes, there is.

I wonder what the response would have been on the East or West coast.

As well they should be. Obama's response and leadership has been sorely lacking.
