Obama on oil spill: Progress but 'job isn't done'

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama said Wednesday that "significant progress" has been made in tackling the Gulf oil spill disaster, but he stressed that the "job isn't done."

He made the statement one year after the Deepwater Horizon oil platform explosion, which killed 11 men. BP's Macondo well blew out, resulting in an estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

    The GOPers don't care about the damage that spill did. They're in bed with BP.

    Pres. Obama, no one can fight against nature. It takes its own time to recuperate.....o.k, Let it settle down by itself. It will. Just concentrate on Fuel efficiency, and Energy independence, and Green Energy.....we will be alright.
