It appears the massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is shrinking and those charged with cleaning up the mess are at a loss to explain why. Some have suggested the oil is beneath the surface, though that would be a curious happenstance since oil floats when mixed with water. We could be seeing how powerful mother nature - created by God - can be. It appears the oil is evaporating as it disperses the farther away it moves from the spill site.

VIa ABC News:
The numbers don't lie: two weeks ago, skimmers picked up about 25,000 barrels of oily water. Last Thursday, they gathered just 200 barrels.

Still, it doesn't mean that all the oil that gushed for weeks is gone. Thousands of small oil patches remain below the surface, but experts say an astonishing amount has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.

"[It's] mother nature doing her job," said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University.
This explanation makes as much sense as anything else:
The oil that did make it to the ocean's surface was broken up by 88-degree water, baked by 100-degree sun, eaten by microbes, and whipped apart by wind and waves.
Considering we have a president who has a big problem accepting responsibility and no problem at all taking credit, Vegas should take bets on how long it will take him to champion his mastery of the clean-up.

Then again, this might make his argument for the drilling moratorium even more ridiculous.
