I knew he wouldn't last.

Well, now that that's settled.

1 +1 = 2.
Sarah Palin only spoke of drilling in Alaskan wilderness during her campaign. Something that even McCain was against.

McCain was for offshore drilling, but not ripping up the Alaskan wilderness. as mentioned here:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/politic...nterview_N.htm

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.

The ANWR debate has never been about "ripping up the Alaskan wilderness." It's about opening up a tiny sliver (2,000 acres located entirely in the coastal plain) of a gigantic wildlife refuge that is almost 20 million acres in size (about 9 times the size of Yellowstone) to oil exploration and development. 2,000 acres sounds like a lot, but in reality it equates to about one hundredth of one percent of ANWR. Further, most Alaskans support it.

I hope you don't want progress, because as long as the D's and R's are doing this Tit for Tat horseshit....you aren't getting any.

Yes, I know she was governor of Alaska. Yes, I know she was for drilling prior to '08. I never said she wasn't. The only area she spoke about drilling in during her '08 campaign for VP was in the Alaskan Wilderness. Why are you pointing out obvious crap about Sarah Palin? It's obvious you love her (figurtively) but I'm not even attacking or saying anything mean about her....why the lecture?

I'm not whining about anything. Saying that I am is just catty.

I'm not totally against it. But 2000 acres is still going to be ripped up. If they allowed that land to be used, they need to restrict it so that's the only land being used. Because you know what happens when you give a Mouse a Cookie (if you don't get the reference it's to a childrens book about one thing leading to another, than another, than another, until you're giving up alot more than you once thought you would be)

Same principle applies when the government gets involved in our lives. Like HC for instance. And the Patriot Act, which Obama was against but promptly renewed.

Sorta like this whole Obaaaaama Healthscare thing, ain't it---before you know it, you're giving up a whole lot more than you thought you would be giving up----
---But I digress...
