In an Attempt to Tack to the Right, Obama Opens Some Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling

President Obama did something I agree with today.

Obama to Open Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling for First Time

The Obama administration is proposing to open vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, officials said Tuesday.

From Jules Crittenden:
They told me if I voted for John McCain the rape of the environment and kowtowing to oil interests would go on, and they were right!...

You know, if he’d just ditch the socialism, fiscal irresponsibility, America-bashing, ally-bashing/abandonment and half-to-3/4 measures vs. terrorism,* I could actually start to like this guy. The weird part is how the candidate who was all about being better liked has made it his business to try to piss off as many people as possible.
