Obama flops again!

Or did he flip? It's tough to keep track with all the policy changes and shifts of positions that Bill Clint.... I mean Barack Obama has made. Now he has come out in favor on drilling as long as it was tried to finding other alternative energies. I believe that we agreed to that three months ago. I know I did I wrote about it here and you can read the article "Drill Now" If you need proof.

I don't want to go into why this is such a problem for freshman Senator because I'm sure I've written about it here at least once, but I believe more than that. I'll just say very simply that Obama is looking like a typical politican.


  1. Two things:

    1. McCain flipped on off-shore drilling.

    2. Obama didn't come out "in favor" of drilling, in fact, he's made it clear that he doesn't like it. What he did say is that he'd be willing to compromise on it if it would help get the more progressive points of his energy legislation passed. It's a bit misleading to say he's "in favor" of off-shore drilling.

    Also, we finally have a reason that gas prices went down, and it's not likely related to Bush's lift of the off-shore drilling ban. Americans drove 10 billion miles less this past May than they did the year before. Gas prices are going down because demand is going down.

  2. We spent last week trying to comprise with you guys. We even reached one before your leader pulled it off the table after we accepted. He probably made a low offer thinking we wouldn't accept and when we did had to admit he wasn't serious about passing that bill.
