Well, St. Barack has flip-flopped on offshore drilling. Now he says he's for it, saying that he could support it as long as it's part of a "comprehensive energy policy" and was a "careful well thought-out drilling strategy that was carefully circumscribed to avoid significant environmental damage."
If he's serious, that's plain good sense, and shows that Obama has a nodding acquaintance with reality when it's politically imperative for him to do so.
Wonder how Nancy "Save the Planet" Pelosi's going to feel about St. Barack throwing her under the bus? Getting awful crowded under there.
