Does appear to be cautiously good news; we can only hope that pressure holds indefinitely and don't have/cause another blowout somewhere along the bore hole.
At least even if so, they can now capture virtually all if not all instead of only a fraction while finish up the bottom kill process.

In forth:

maybe BP could come up with a cap toput over Washington. The only problem I see is that the pressure from all the hot air is much greater than what they just capped

Huh? You do understand that BP did several sleazy things to cut corners in building the rig, including warnings about blowouts, which actually led TO the blowout, right? And that BP has created one of the worst pollution fiascos ever?
Or are you too focused on making snarky remarks about the President to care?

You forgot the bribes paid to Obama.

You think Obama has handled this disaster well, huh?

Nope, plenty of blame for both sides there.

The administration OTOH did a number of things making this worse than it needed to be: 1) Dragged their feet on allowing LA to set up sand berms to protect the beaches and inlands because they weren't happy with where the sand was being dredged from 2) Halted skimmers and other boats in order to perform inspections for fire extinguishers and life vests, thereby delaying cleanup efforts and worsening the spill's effect on beaches 3) Insistence upon treating treated ocean water from skimmers as "hazardous waste" instead of suspending EPA rules and allowing the skimmers to work. The reason? Skimmers only get 95% of the oil, thus discharging the skimmed seawater with 5% oil (95% less than they took in) would be discharging pollution into the ocean. A bit of common sense here would recognize that 5% is a darn site better than 100% oil, but it was better to either not have the skimmers work (leaving 100% oil in the gulf) or limit their efficiency because they had to collect both oil and treated water for disposal inland.
Not to mention the limitations on the press covering the cleanup effort, hiring Blackwater or Blackwater-like guards to keep news crews away from those beaches hardest hit. Yeah, great transparency you've got there Chief.

I believe BP leased the rig. Bp however did request/demand throwing caution to the wind to speed up production.

As compared to the Alaskan spill a couple of decades ago, it will not be as bad as the Alaskan spill was somewhat contained in the bay, the BP spill is in open sea.
I believe the Mexican oil spill that occurred several years ago was worse the the BP Spill.

BP is justifiably being very conservative about the news. A very welcome step, but a long way yet to go - years at least, probably decades.

"He" (assuming ur talking about BHO) didn't do anything, except put off any help we could have had week one to help contain the spill. "He" continues to show he has no executive experience (duh) and is a complete looser. He makes Carter look like a good deal. Glad the Dem's rule will be over soon. Guess it's time for HIM to take another vacation.... How's that hope and change working for ya? What a bunch of crap.

Wow, there are that many left? (Unfortunately, my Bay Area family is still braindead over The Chosen One. <deep, sad sigh>)
