[OT] Obama, Confused, Asks “Whosajiggawha?”

This just in. Obama has now changed his stance on oil drilling. Read with me:

Barack Obama put forward a broad energy plan Monday designed to end U.S. reliance on imported oil within 10 years and shore up his standing amid a tightening White House race and high-anxiety over gas prices.

Obama’s new proposal, though, includes two significant reversals of positions he has taken in the past: He had steadfastly fought the idea of limited new offshore drilling and was against tapping the nation’s emergency oil stockpile to relieve pump prices that have stubbornly hovered around $4 a gallon.

Obama, who as recently as last month argued against tapping into the petroleum reserve located in caverns in Texas and Louisiana, proposed that the government sell 70 million barrels of oil from its stockpiles and said that releases from the reserve in the past have lowered gas prices within two weeks.

Okay, so once again we have solid proof that he’s a flip-flopping S.O.B. who frankly doesn’t have the first damn clue as to what he’s doing, hence the reason for the constant state of flux in his opinions, views and strategies. Given this latest embarassment–it should be an embarassment, but I predict not only will he not be made to answer for it but his supporters will also just pretend this didn’t happen–is The Golden Calf going to APOLOGIZE to John McCain [and to George Bush, who, despite all discontent, is still our President] for saying this:

Obama said that U.S. politicians have failed for three decades to deal with the energy crisis, and that McCain has been “part of that failure.” He called tapping the petroleum reserves a short-term solution to a long-term problem.

“Like George Bush and Dick Cheney before him,” Obama said of the Arizonan, “he sees more drilling as the answer to all of our energy problems, and like them, he’s found a receptive audience in the very same oil companies that have blocked our progress for so long. In fact, he raised more than one million dollars from big oil just last month.”

Also on Monday, the Obama campaign unveiled a television ad that criticizes McCain’s energy policies. “After one president in the pocket of big oil we can’t afford another,” says the ad, referring to Bush’s previous work in the oil industry.
