Surprise! Republicans Suddenly Oppose Offshore Oil Drilling

http://firedoglake.com/2010/03/31/surprise-republicans-... /

So predictable.

President Barack Obama’s plan to allow expanded offshore oil and gas exploration won rebuke from the top House Republican on Wednesday.


House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) dismissed the president’s plan as not going far enough in opening up U.S. waters for exploration.

Obama’s decision “continues to defy the will of the American people,” Boehner said in a statement, pointing to the president’s decision to open Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters, while leaving Pacific and many Alaskan waters largely closed to exploration.

Obama could propose cutting taxes to zero, deporting everyone who can’t speak English, renaming the country “Jesusland”…doesn’t matter.

The GOP answer will always be the same.

5. The memo hasn't hit TeaBagger HQ yet...

They didn't know that even though they are supposed to be "for" offshore drilling, when Obama is "for" it, then they must be "agin" it. Being "agin" Obama trumps everything, donchano.

6. They must oppose Obama...

Even when what he wants is what they've been screaming for.

Two dimentional? That's giving them too much credit. I'd go with one dimentional...closer to the truth.
