Key quote from President Obama:
The key here right now is for us to make decisions based on science, based on what’s best for the people of the Gulf — not based on PR, not based on politics. ; And that’s part of the reason why I wanted to speak this morning, because I know that there were a lot of reports coming out in the media that seemed to indicate, well, maybe this thing is done. We won’t be done until we actually know that we’ve killed the well and that we have a permanent solution in place. We’re moving in that direction, but I don’t want us to get too far ahead of ourselves.
