I campaigned my ass off for Obama and will most likely vote for him again in 2012 but he is really starting to piss me off on certain issues. I am stunned that he is now siding with Republicans on drilling and selling off drilling rights again. One of his campaign issues was developing alternative sources of power and to stop relying on oil. He also said(correctly) that drilling at home would not reduce prices at the pump for a minimum of 10 years.
So why the change of heart? The election in 2021 and since the change he promised has yet to appear and he has to play to those who are middle of the road instead of the progressives who elected him. I guess instead of being a statesmen, he would rather be a politician.
