Obama to Support Increased Offshore Drilling…Say What?!?!

Read here. This is REALLY going to piss-off environmentalists and many Obama supporters. I understand the need for domestic energy independence, the need for a national energy policy that doesn’t involve “excursions” into the Middle East, national security concerns of relying on foreign energy sources, and the economics and politics of revenue generation oil and cheaper gas, but unless this is part of some sort of horse trading to get climate change legislation passed in Congress this is going to cause serious resentment among politicians and citizens alike. Just because this is consistent with Obama’s pragmatic approach to governing doesn’t mean I have to like it.
