Topic: Obama's offshore drilling plan

"Reporting from Washington - President Obama, after delaying and deliberating for a year, unveiled a controversial offshore drilling plan Wednesday that was driven largely by the politics of his agenda on energy and climate change -- not by hopes of changing the nation's energy supply.

As a presidential candidate, Obama was attacked by Republicans for not supporting all-out expansion of offshore drilling. And one of his administration's first acts after he took office last year was to cancel the long-term offshore plans President George W. Bush had released at the end of his tenure."

President Obama may be coming to his senses. He is ignoring campaign promises about offshore drilling, to use a balanced approach to work with Republicans regarding US Energy needs.
