Dragging his feet this weekend, Barack Obama changed his tune on offshore drilling. Obama said he would be willing to support drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, in exchange for a comprehensive alternative energy plan which would include ending oil company tax breaks, and extending tax credits to those searching for alternative fuels.
Explaining his shift, Obama said: "What I will not do, and this has always been my position, is to support a plan that suggests this drilling is the answer to our energy problems. If we've got a plan on the table that I think meets the goals that America has to set and there are some things in there that I don't like, then obviously that's something that I would consider because that's the nature of how we govern in a democracy."
Since the majority of you said you opposed offshore drilling last time I asked, I'm curious if Obama's plan sounds more appealing to you.
