  •  He wants to win this election. (6+ / 0-)

    And so do I.  With gas at $4/gallon, people are clamoring.  Food and all other goods are skyrocketing because of increased transportation costs.  

    The polls are showing that more and more people are supporting increased drilling.  He doesn't want to get beat over the head by this by McCain and the media.  This just might be the one issue that could cause him to lose the damned election in the fall if he isn't seen as supporting everything possible to reduce these oil prices.

    blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah

      is not that strong and Obama should be using his platform to make the case against it, rather than pander to the right.  But then again, all he's done since June is pander to the right so why should we expect any different now?

    •  Win the election for what? (0+ / 0-)

      For neo-neo-con policies on drilling, FISA, Iraq, faith-based initiatives, affirmative action, and abortion? I wonder what compromises are forthcoming on climate change, school vouchers, and welfare reform to name a few.

      What's the point of winning an election if you're just going to get a McCain sockpuppet? How does that help Democrats?

      Senator Clinton, if you knew then what you know now, would you have married Bill?
