What happened to "You can't drill your way out..."?

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20080801/D929PVL00.html

"Those who stand for nothing fall for anything."
—Alexander Hamilton

Obama is defining a new low in politics, with absolutely no moral center on any issue.

I vivdly recall his lively speeches mocking John McCain for his support for increased drilling.  His favorite phrase ripped from the liberal handbook was, "You can't drill your way out of high oil prices."

I guess he finally figured out that saying such stupid things doesn't win a lot of support from Americans.

He's also figuring out that if he continues making speeches to roomfuls of screaming teenagers (and mental teenagers) it does not move the polling numbers of the real people of vote.

So I guess he's trying to be more like his opponent in order to win more votes.

The problem is, he can't seem to figure out what his principles are, because he is literally taking two sides of every issue.

And this guy wants to lead the country?  How exactly does someone devoid of principles make good decisions?  (Hint: they don't.)

  • I just get sick of this event we have every 4 years. Each side blaming the other about everything, as if one side was more moral or whatever than the other. It's getting so old. This person is making bad decisions, that guy is doing this....give me a break already. This guy is flip flopping, that person is better equipped for the job...BLAH....BLAH.....BLAH......BLAH.......BLAH....

    It's become a circus, and i will have nothing to do with the "He said , she said" crap. It's like a couple of kids in 3rd grade.

    Both sides have an agenda they must meet. Both sides are hypocrates. Both sides take kick backs. Both sides claim they can save the world. Both sides make promises to get elected, but don't keep.
    They all know how to save healthcare, and every other ailment, but how far has anyone come since? Ask that question.


    Seriously, any adult who takes this sharade seriously needs mental help. Sorry, but it's true. I can't stress strongly enough the bandwagon people jump on. I could never ever understand how someone could agree with every last detail of one party. Surley there are general ideals that each party holds closely, but there are always gray areas in life. Nothing is written in black and white. In my opinion, there are some good and bad ideas from all sides. I could never imagine myself agreeing with everything on either side.

    Moreover, With all the broohaha every 4 years, major crisis seem to continue to exist, and in most cases get worse as time goes by. The turmoil around the world has not become stifled, but has been exponentially grown, despite what your media whores want you to believe. It's sickening.

    Both sides have agendas. Period !

    I say fire all of them, and hire everyday folk who just want to make a fair buck and let the freedom of other people in this land take advantage of the original process our fathers set, education, business with standards, which means work hard and succeed. Not, work hard and get screwed if you don't rub noses with certain people in high power, even if it means stepping over the peons, kind of thinking . It isn't enough to work hard. You have to be within an elite circle.

    The American dream never happened!

    Only with a clean slate will I vote.

  • Scary isn't it? He doesn't want to lead, he wants to rule. Snake oil, everytime I hear Barry speak, he actually equated tire inflation and tuning up your vehicle with the amount of oil which will come from any new drilling! Brilliant! This guy is so full of himself that he thinks he is going to lower ocean sea levels! There is still a couple of months to go and I believe he will foot in the mouth right out of any chance of winning the presidency.

  • @J: I forgot about that one! I had to watch the video clip myself to believe it -- Obama actually said inflate your tires to lower prices. Clueless!

    (Yes, inflating your tires will indeed give you slightly better gas mileage, but stating that as a serious way to solve our dependency on foreign oil is insulting and clueless.)

  • @chowchow: I put a lot of thought into my comments. If you'd like to debate a point with me that's fine, but please don't bother if you're just going to throw in a quick insult without consideration of anything I've said.

    Your comment (or lack thereof) is classic trolling behavior. You might want to read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_%28Internet%29

  • @ Chowchow. You sound like a total moron.

    "So what's your point, get a life"?

    Are you serious?

    How did a 12 year old kid like you sneak in to the LP?
