Obama shifts, says he may back offshore drilling
By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer 8 minutes ago
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Friday he would be willing to support limited additional offshore oil drilling if that's what it takes to enact a comprehensive policy to foster fuel-efficient autos and develop alternate energy sources.
Shifting from his previous opposition to expanded offshore drilling, the Illinois senator told a Florida newspaper he could get behind a compromise with Republicans and oil companies to prevent gridlock over energy.

The wackoo env. must be having a diarrhea attack with that statement. I think Nader and the greenies just gained a few hundred thousand votes.
This lying POS will say or do anything to get elected. Bush needs to call these Congress critters back into session.

Apparently, if you don't like Obama rhetoric, wait a few days, it'll change.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
