Obama to BP: Show me the money

SHOOT: Better do so soon, before they clean out their accounts and plead poverty.

“We want to make sure that money is escrowed for the legitimate claims that are going to be, and are being made, by businesses down in the Gulf — people who’ve been damaged by this,” said David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s senior White House strategist, on NBC’s “Meet the Press” television news program on Sunday. “And we want to make sure that that money is independently administered so that [they] won’t be slow-walked on these claims.”

He also acknowledged that the volume of spewing oil could be higher than he has stated until now — up to 40,000 barrels a day rather than the 19,000 to 25,000 a federal panel trying to measure the elusive gusher had estimated last week. But Adm. Allen tempered his estimate by saying that the “mid-30,000 range is what we’re looking at.”
