  •  the best reply is "In BP's filing to get approval (5+ / 0-)

    for this well they said they could handle a "worst case scenario" of a total blowout that spewed 150k barrels of oil a day (ten times what they say is flowing). Clearly they lied.

    •  Not even elegant lies. They're clumsy (4+ / 0-)

      transparent lies.  Either they think we're all idiots or they don't care if we know they're lying, because nobody else has the equipment to get down there and verify what they're saying or do anything about it.
      And Obama's just as stuck in it as we are.  He knows they're lying too, but what's he going to do about it?  We don't have ROV's laying around to verify.  If I were REALLY paranoid, I might suspect Big Oil's not too upset about this.  Break trust in the man, and you're a lot more likely to get your favored candidate in the next time.
