Thick Blobs of Tar Begin Washing Up on Alabama Shore – Obama Goes Golfing

Fore!

Barack Obama went golfing on Saturday as thick blobs of tar began washing up on the Alabama shore.

The first attempt to capture the leaking oil in the Gulf of Mexico failed on Saturday. BP said it could be days before another similar attempt is made.
FOX News reported:

As a massive oil leak spit thousands of gallons more crude into the Gulf of Mexico, a big box that BP hoped would be its savior sat idle hundreds of feet away, encased in ice crystals.

The company’s first attempt to divert the oil had failed, its mission now in serious doubt. Meanwhile, thick blobs of tar washed up on Alabama’s white sand beaches, yet another sign the spill was worsening.

It had taken about two weeks to build the box and three days to cart it 50 miles out and slowly lower it to the well a mile below the surface, but the frozen depths were just too much. BP officials were not giving up hopes that a containment box — either the one brought there or a larger one being built — could cover the well. But they said it could be days before another attempt to capture the oil and funnel it to a tanker at the surface would be tried.

“I wouldn’t say it’s failed yet,” BP chief operating officer Doug Suttles said. “What I would say is what we attempted to do … didn’t work.”

Thank goodness Obama has his lapdog media to cover for him. If he were a Republican he’d be finished right about now.
