Good News. The well is capped.
Obama just spoke and is now taking credit.
What a jerk.
Now that BP has capped the well, it’s all “we” and “us” and not a word of thanks to BP for all the work they have done. As long as the news was all bad, it was totally about BP.
BP is made up of men and women who have been up day and night trying to solve this problem. So regardless of the cause of this disaster, they deserved at least a little teeny tiny thank you from the president.
So I’ll say it: Thank you, all you workers who have been steadily laboring now for about 3 months to come up with a solution and actually have been able to stop the oil. You have my respect and gratitude. I hope all goes well from here on out.
Because “we,” and “us” haven’t done a damn thing. Not one damn thing.
