    I’m tired of being LIED to and having my intelligence insulted by BP. BP is not spending the money to have enough oil tankers at the spill site to load the oil. They act as though they can’t capture all the oil (lie) then we find out they are not able to handle all the oil. I have been telling people the truth for wks. There is no way the government does not realize this, yet they keep silent. I am don hoping Obama will get anything don, I had hope but the last weeks have shown me that he is not capable of handling this. Very sad. Bp will make 35 billion from the relief wells, Yet they won’t pay to rent the tankers to capture the oil. O YEA BP promised to use the captured oil on gulf costal projects so why rent tankers, it’s cheaper to burn it and BP gets the benefit of the air pollution burning Oil mixed with antifreeze and dispersants. That should make BP real happy, and Thad Alan a shoe in for a million dollar Oil industry Job after he retires from the coast guard. Obama I was rutting for you, but now I don’t trust you at all. I think bush would have at least had the flowing oil captured by now, and I hate W.
