[ - ] I just read that Obama decided to support offshore drilling. I don't know what to make of it. He was so adamantly against it. First, FISA, second abortion, third, merit pay for teachers and now this... (public campaign finance and townhall debates gone, too)... I liked him in the primary and now I don't know... 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I thought this year would be diff. But it feels like same old same old. I really think he would win in a landslide if he actually stuck to everything he said in the primary. I think it hurts him more than helps him to switch positions like that. Offshore drilling and FISA... I am not happy. [ Reply | More ]

I feel much more let down by the FISA thing. I can see supporting some kind of limited drilling in the context of a larger energy policy, as he described it. I support the idea of consensus building and compromise. But I don't see any room for compromise with FISA, you want to listen to someone's phone calls, go to court or follow the FISA protocol. Overall, he's behaving like a typical democrat: wimpy. It's really making me wish Hilary was still in it. She would have no problem hitting McCain where it hurts and he really deserves it right now.

what i find interestingis when kerry switiched positions, it was called "flip flopping". when obama switches (repeatedly we've seen now), he's shifting, changing, etc. No negative or pejorative terms are used. Example # 7,324 of how biased the media is. Never saw it, as a leftish person myself, until this election. Unbelievable. [ Reply | More ]

perfect for this age. they used to just let you buy tickets and then you'd pay for each ride with tickets. now, they charge admission to the park. if it's a short visit, you won't get your money's worth, but if you stay 2+ hours, it's more cost effective. [ Reply | More ]
