McCain Seeks to End Offshore Drilling Ban

Iow, McCain gets a clue

You have to wonder how out of touch our politicians are that they don't realize how much high gas prices are squeezing Americans in the face of a housing bust and a recession. On that score John McCain has to be the worst, at least up until today. Nice to know he is not so politically brain dead that he would continue to oppose drilling off the coasts.

Democratic Sen. Barack Obama joined the criticism, calling the idea of lifting the ban the wrong answer to out-of-control energy prices. "John McCain's plan to simply drill our way out of our energy crisis is the same misguided approach backed by President Bush that has failed our families for too long and only serves to benefit the big oil companies," Obama spokesman Hari Sevugan said.

The same approach? Have we been drilling in ANWR and off the coasts before and i missed it? I seem to remember the Democrats opposing drilling and now we are enjoying the fruits of their obstinacy. No this would be a new approach. Please God, let Obama keep mimicking the environmentalist talking points. At least he isn't going to the right of McCain on this issue which would probably end McCain's chance of winning. This is more proof that Hillary was right about Obama, he is too far left to be elected. He should know to move to the center. At the least Obama should be saying that he would consider more drilling. Someone is looking out for John McCain and the Republican party.
