BP's "Spew Cam" at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico reveals no fewer than THREE plumes of what appears to be either mud being pumped in or petroleum continuing to flow out.

Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense!'

"This scandal could be enormous," said Dick Morris, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, on the Fox News Sean Hannity show last night. "It's Valerie Plame only 10 times bigger, because it's illegal and Joe Sestak is either lying or the White House committed a crime.

"Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel," he said. If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama's apppoval, "that is a high crime and misdemeanor.

Sean Hannity and Dick Morris talk about the emerging Sestak Affair:

R/V Bellows Returns from Gulf of Mexicos Loop Current!

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Updated May 24, 2010) As scientific models show oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill entering the Gulf of Mexicos Loop Current, USF's R/V Bellows and a team of scientists ended a five-day voyage to the current Monday, but still have much work to do on water samples drawn from those waters.
The Bellows is the second USF ship involved in the oil spill response. The R/V Weatherbird sailed Saturday for its second trip into the spill zone, a six-day mission to determine if oil from the ruptured Deepwater Horizon well has pooled in the depths of the gulf.

Carville's Oil Outburst...

Carville blasts White House over rig spill reaction. "The political stupidity of this is just unbelievable.....the President needs to get down here and put somebody in charge, we're about to die down here!"

Obama to aides: 'Plug the damn hole'!

It looks like the ocean floor collapsed, the magnitude of this disaster is unknown. Lindsey Williams is saying that 200,000 barrels a day is emptying into the gulf. This video clearly reveals the shocking magnitude of the breach!
The Washington Post has reported:

Since the oil rig exploded, the White House has tried to project a posture that is unflappable and in command.

But to those tasked with keeping the president apprised of the disaster, Obama's clenched jaw is becoming an increasingly familiar sight. During one of those sessions in the Oval Office the first week after the spill, a president who rarely vents his frustration cut his aides short, according to one who was there.

"Plug the damn hole," Obama told them.
