Maybe the Hurricane is a blessing? Just maybe?
There is a buildup of methane that needs to be dissipated and diluted to prevent disaster.
The press has not been talking about it much but it is perhaps the greatest danger in this whole mess. It could fry millions of Floridians.

Drill Baby Drill....cause we can blame Obama!

I agree with McCain, Dolphins love deep water oil rigs.

And we don't need regulations for safety...it just handcuffs businesses like BP.

And you treehuggers who fear damage to the environment, would you rather pay 5 dollars for gas?

Oh yeah...one last thing. We need another record level taxbreak for the oil industry. Whats good for BP is good for America. We know the record level profits would be spent to grow America!!

Vastly more oil will continue to spew into the Gulf for the forseeable future as more and more people learn why California has put a hold on offshore drilling.
