Oil could hit Florida Panhandle by Wednesday
A Florida beach might get hit with oil from the Deepwater Horizon accident for the first time Wednesday as sheen likely caused by the accident was reported less than 10 miles off Pensacola Beach.\
A charter boat captain reported the oil Tuesday afternoon and state and local environmental officials confirmed that it was about 9.5 miles offshore. Winds are forecast to blow from the south and west, pushing the outer edges of massive slick from the spill closer to western Panhandle beaches.

So as we approach day 50 of this disaster? What has happened....what has changed since day one.
IMO, about the only thing accomplished since the Deepwater Horizon exploded and caught fire, is that the damn thing sunk. Other than that, nothing seems to have gone as expected since.
The messiah finally found time to make his way down to the gulf for a photo op over the Memorial day weekend. The snap of him squatting in the sand really says it all IMO. That photo says to me that the president hasn't been able to do squat other than squat for that photo. And I don't see that reality changing.
Meanwhile, BP continues to spend supposed millions employing specialists and experts to seal this well, but to date, the experts look more like sophomore engineers in a high school science class, than experts at anything. To date, nothing they have tried has worked and it doesn't look like that reality will change any time soon.
Meanwhile, we are now being told that this thing may still be spewing oil come December. That's comforting. The entire ecosystem, not to mention the entire economy of the gulf coast ought to be completely finished by the time Christmas arrives.
And mean while, all our 'yes we can' president has been able to demonstrate is that 'no he can't.' His approval rating is below 44% this morning and for the life of me, I don't know why it isn't below 4%. The man has done absolutely nothing to stabilize the nation's economy or staunch unemployment since taking office and now he is literally sitting and fiddling while Rome burns and the entire gulf coast economy collapses.
But while we are considering metaphors and iconic images of our messiah? take a couple of moments to pause and reflect on that image of our president and then have a look at this one.
Now.....tell me these presidential photos are not purposely staged and designed to create subliminal messages in the unknowing mind of a duped American public.
