Does Obama's Shift on Offshore Drilling Make You Shift Too?

Does Obama's Shift on Offshore Drilling Make You Shift Too?


Dragging his feet this weekend, Barack Obama changed his tune on offshore drilling. Obama said he would be willing to support drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, in exchange for a comprehensive alternative energy plan which would include ending oil company tax breaks, and extending tax credits to those searching for alternative fuels.

Explaining his shift, Obama said: "What I will not do, and this has always been my position, is to support a plan that suggests this drilling is the answer to our energy problems. If we've got a plan on the table that I think meets the goals that America has to set and there are some things in there that I don't like, then obviously that's something that I would consider because that's the nature of how we govern in a democracy."

Since the majority of you said you opposed offshore drilling last time I asked, I'm curious if Obama's plan sounds more appealing to you.
