    Because the Administration seems to be playing along with BP to minimize the situation.  

    Politics is like playing Asteroids - You go far enough to the left and you end up on the right. Or vice-versa.

    •  What makes you say that? (0+ / 0-)

      What, exactly, is the administration supposed to do about it? Are you saying they could stop the leak, but aren't doing so?

      •  I recall Obama recently being quoted saying (0+ / 0-)

        "trust but verify" with respect to future oversight of BP drilling.

        Seems to me that Jonze is quite right.

        or the first kill well works, they'll be OK.  If not, then the administration is probably going to take some well-deserved shit for not getting multiple wells started at the same time.  They'd have to commandeer the drill ships, but it could be done.
