Here is my predition: before the election, Obama will change his position on drilling. Now, over 70% of Americans believe that we should drill here and drill now. In light of that, I don’t think Obama can afford to hold on to his position. And since he has shown over and over (FISA, public financing, Iraq, welfare reform, Iran, Jerusalem, the gun ban, free trade, etc.) that he will change his position for political expediency, why would this be any different? I am just waiting to see when he will change and what his explanation will be. Will his previous statement opposing drilling be declared “inartful” or will the current system be found to be “broken”? Should be interesting. But you heard it here: Obama will change his position. Mark my words.
