Obama's seeming continued flip-flopping is worrisome. And his "new" policies regarding tapping oil reserves (bad idea) and potential "environmentally friendly" offshore drilling (worse idea) are extremely disturbing to me.
Ok, so he's not really flip-flopping per se. He says he would only support offshore drilling as part of an unfortunate compromise necessary to pass his overall energy plan (which is sound). But my question is, how do you know such compromise would be necessary, especially given that the congress is likely to be heavily democratic. Why make concessions now?
It seems that McCain's misguided attacks are serving to throw Obama into a tailspin. If this is Obama's idea of "fighting back" then maybe he really isn't up to the task. I will never vote for McCain, but the Obama of the past month or so has me reconsidering him as well.
