John, Who did this to you?

President Bush is pushing offshore drilling as a way to increase production and cut oil prices. Harvard University Director of the Environment and Natural Resources Program, Henry Lee, who says offshore drilling may not have an immediate impact.

Charlie Black, Lobbyist & top Adviser to John McCain said, “when John McCain this week called for an end to the federal ban on offshore drilling, the Arizona senator wasn’t flip-flopping, he was acknowledging the “great crisis in energy” facing the country.

He tells Robert Siegel of NPR, “It’s an economic crisis for the average American, who are paying triple what they paid for gasoline only a couple of years ago.”

Come on man.

This is the same Charlie Black who said “another terrorist attack would help the McCain campaign”.

A few months ago John McCain was asked about offshore drilling during a campaign stop in Wisconsin. McCain noted that such resources would take years to develop, and that the U.S. should instead focus on alternative energy sources.

I agree with you, but what happen?

Charlie Black says McCain’s new stance represents weeks of talks with policy advisers on how to bring energy security and energy independence to the U.S. “So it’s not a change in his position as much as a new challenge to America. Senator McCain has always said that offshore drilling should be up to the states and not the federal government.

Wait a minute. Now didn’t John McCain say that “such resources would take years to develop, and that the U.S. should instead focus on alternative energy sources”.

So I ask again, what happen?

Better yet, why do you still have this guy speaking for you? I thought you were against lobbyist.
