Literal tons of it. [video down below 1st]
Obama's Katrina? Karl Rove in the Wall Street journal says yes it 'tis...I don't know how helpful it is to blame him but it's much of his fault for ignoring the severity of it which he even admitted in his lengthy news conference I watched in it's entirety, as painful as it was.
To give you an idea, the barrels needed to clean up the Obama BP spill would hold 39 million gallons of crude, which would require 780,000 50 gallon drums at 3 feet across reaching 2,340,000 ft when divided by 5280 feet per mile comes to a line of barrels which would stretch 443 miles of 50 gallon drums.
That's enough barrels of crude stacked side by side to make a trip from DC to NYC and back once. 201 each way as the crow flies..('member that?)
So far, BP has told federal agencies that it has applied more than 400,000 gallons of a dispersant sold under the trade name Corexit and manufactured by Nalco Co., whose current leadership includes executives from BP and Exxon.

That's the only plan other than to clean it up as it comes ashore and we've seem what that looks like from the Valzdez.
They've already hired 20,000 employees. There's Obama's job plan for you huh? It's going to take 5 times that easily to clean this mess up as it comes to shore and if it bankrupts BP nobody gets nothing and we get stuck with the bill so lawsuit filing folks need to keep that in mind as they rightfully I might add try to do exactly that.
However BP said this and they're right: "BP is very important to the American people and it's economy".
Touché on that thanks to liberals preventing drilling on land and now canceling all exploration as the markets flipped out ten minutes later.
What a buffoon.
He doesn't know how wield power unless he's doing it against Americans almost.
