If I were O'Bama I would tell him to stop saying we, which implies the CG and the government are down there pulling the levers, and instead say BP is doing this or that ( which they are ).

People are becoming so incensed over this the good Admiral should very deliberatly let BP take every bit of blame and responsibility for all these fixes that aren't working, even if the feds are providing "oversight" as he says they are.
Actually, Transocean (RIG) is doing the work.
