I listened tothe Press conference, and given my expectations of what was being done/accomplished behind the scenes I was not disappointed with the president and what has been tried thus far.

Not many I know are experts at such a task as plugging a hole on a rig at the bottom of the ocean. Surely we want answers, but the circumstances demand that BP and the government work collaborately to get the job accomplished.

There has been much said about how much this situation has been mishandled, but there is no doubt given the 'enormity' of the leak and what it entails to get the leakage stopped-- most of the criticism of the administration is clearly 'filtered' through the 'prism of politics" as Mr. Obama indicated.
Who in their right mind would want to see damage to the environment? Or a situation to put people out of work given the state of the economy? No one?

Those owning BP stocks... are losing money, as well. Like everyone they too, common sense would suggest want to see this process end successfully. Can only hope that "Top Kill' works.

The President has had much --one situation after the other on his plate since taking office. Each an emergeny to be fixed. These..18 months in office needs not a politician but Superman. Neverthess he's not even expected to be little testy.

Kudos Mr. President... for giving it your best shot. I believe there's nothing to be gained from all this. Politically or otherwise.
