Obama Shifts On Offshore Drilling

Mulligan! shouts the man with the two faces. “I uh, well yes surely I support gun control” “Make sure you get that on camera” Barack Obama goes from Jimmy Carter legacy crusader to used car salesman in just whoa! few days. It seems that the Illinois Senator didn’t just change his boxers before he left the house. Now Senator Obama shifts on his long opposition to offshore oil drilling.In a statement Barack Obama said:**

“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.” **

You mean you don’t want to lose so you better get wise and stop opposing oil drilling domestically so you won’t piss any voters off right?

The man has no core. I know we’ve all heard this before but it’s the truth. He changes positions without according to what the political forecast looks like. I mean is there anything Barack Obama stands for besides change? And the only change I see is the changes made to every major social and political issue in America. First it was gun control, then the war in Iraq, then it was public finance, then it was FISA, then he was starting to waffle on his strong Pro-Choice stance, then he changed his views on nuclear energy, and now it’s offshore drilling. Barack Obama to me seems like a made up character in a book. He lacks any real policy stance and he’s banking on a message and appeal that now seems to be fading amongst voters. So what does he do? He changes positions in order to seem more..presidential or to show that he can work across party lines when it suits him. He doesn’t care about the country, he cares about getting elected. There’s a reason why Obama hasn’t been running up the score on McCain. People believe McCain. I don’t think voters outside of the wide eyed college students and elite liberals believe anything Obama says. And that my friends, is a crying shame. A man who has no real principle that relates to the citizen is a man who cannot lead those citizens. I think we all better keep that in mind.

Americans want someone they can relate to in terms of principle, values, and honesty. Barack Obama possess none of the above.
