"...officials have wanted to test its capability as well as have the federal Environmental Protection Agency sign off on the water it will pump back into the gulf. Although the ship cleans most of the oil from seawater, trace amounts of crude remain."

Can you believe this? Less oil would be better then anything at this point. We can make it all pure drinking water after the clean up! Good Lord!

What does this say about Obama(D) not declaring an emergency with all this regulation garbage and get busy! 90 days in approaches! Remember the Jimmy Carter(D) malays with the hostages? Well, let's update this spill problem... America held hostage, Day 444! Think about it!

What a fantastic idea! Not! All the methods, personnel, experts available in the critical first days were ignored by the golfing dude.

Remember, you voted for him.

Thanks for nothing Obama, you f**king idiot.

We should have had these big ships in the Gulf two months ago.

Exactly! The vacuuming was stopped for a safety check, so what else can we expect. Add this to the list of failures.
