I imaging that B.H.Obama will be waiting a good 3 to 4 days before he jumps on the podium and declares that through his diligence, hard work, Government money and oversight, and his crack team of advisers, the oil spill has been stemmed.
After all, the last time he did it only a day after the slowdown and he ended up with lots of egg and oil on his face.
But I guess we can be sure of one thing, he WILL take all of the credit for the closure. None of the blame for the oil hitting the beach. But he will take the credit.
