McCain was for offshore drilling, but not ripping up the Alaskan wilderness. as mentioned here:
Sarah Palin was a hack then, is a hack now, and will always be a hack. (opinion)
Obama changed his mind from what he said during his campaign in Jacksonville, so what? He's trying to work with Republicans and not be a hardlining bipartisan jag off.
He promised an attempt at lowering gas costs and getting an effective comprehensive energy bill passed, if he has to open up the coast to drilling to accomplish that (by scratching the GOP's back)...why not? It's what the Republicans wanted during the '08 election...
Don't kid yourself. Obaaaama isn't trying to work with the R's. Only thing he's doing is trying to save his ass. If he was trying to work with the R's, deathcare wouldn't be as much of a scam. He's one and done, get used to it.
You do know Palin was gov of Alaska, right. She was for drilling before '08. Who nailed the oil companies in Alaska for the people of Alaska. Because of her the people of Alaska get a bigger pay back from the oil every year. Unlike obaaaaama she stood up for the people, not trying to find more ways to screw them.
I'd think a little harder about whining about political campaign promises if I were you.
