From Political Wire:
"It turns out, by the way, that oil rigs today generally don't cause spills. They are technologically very advanced."
-- President Obama, quoted by Think Progress on April 2, 2010.
Just 18 days later a rig operated 41 miles off the Louisiana coast exploded and caused what may be the largest oil spill in history.
The picture above is one of those technologically-advanced oil rigs that generally don't spill anymore.
It is STILL spilling oil as I write this.
They haven't figured out how to shut the rig off.
It is leaking 5,000 barrels of oil per day.
Spill, baby, spill.
