  •  Oh, that flip-flopper Obama (8+ / 0-)

    The one that was always talking about compromise in order to get solutions.

    If, in order to get that passed, we have to compromise in terms of a careful, well thought-out drilling strategy that was carefully circumscribed to avoid significant environmental damage - I don't want to be so rigid that we can't get something done," the paper quoted Obama as saying.

    That's like the third paragraph of your linked article. Maybe you should have read all the way through before panicking.

    The vote is "Basic Democracy #1". YOU must preserve it. -edscan

        If there is no compromise nothing will get done. He said if it takes off shore drilling to get a comprehensive energy plan which includes 80 percent of the cars to be run on something else besides gas in the next 20 years then he will take it. In the next 20 years how much drilling will be needed if most of the cars will run on something else? Not many. He doesn't need an excuse to support drilling off shore.
