Barry: Sure, We Can Have Limited Offshore Drilling. Peons

Change you find blowing in the breeze (cBS News)

In a sudden and major shift, Democrat Barack Obama said he would be willing to support limited additional offshore oil drilling if that would help promote alternative energy sources, a proposal he has repeatedly blasted rival John McCain for supporting.

If this was about McCain, the AP would be calling this a major flip flop. But, I guess we can give them a few props for even bringing this up.

Anyhow, what is “limited?” Will Barry tell us?

Obama every wayThe first term Illinois senator, in comments echoed by other critics of the proposal, had argued that any new oil found would take years to come onto the market and that conservation and fuel-efficient vehicles were a quicker solution to soaring costs.

But Obama told a Florida newspaper in an interview that he could support a compromise with Republicans and oil companies to prevent gridlock over energy.

“My interest is in making sure we’ve got the kind of comprehensive energy policy that can bring down gas prices,” Obama said in an interview with The Palm Beach Post.

“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.”

No, he won’t.

two faced snob-ammesiahSounds to me like he is hedging his bets, as there is no place that the extremist environmentals will allow drilling to be done. Sounds to me like Barry is simply trying to take the popular position, without meaning it. Sounds to me like, not a flip flop, but, a disingenuous position. Yes, a lie.

Good thing Barry has crafted his strategy to include takingstealing money from American oil companies and the American stockholders, and giving a $1,000 check one time to Americans (how many will he give a check that have no cars?), as well as sending the Tire Pressure Police to check up on you. That’ll do it! That $1k check should be able to buy you 8 fillups with that plan.

You can see and listen to some of the interview at the Palm Beach Post, which also mentions Obama being heckled.

More: Listening to some of Barry’s PC at Cape Canaveral while doing some posts, and he was asked why he changed his position (slightly) on drilling. He answered that he has always held this position. Change BS you can believe in.
