The More Things Change…
…the more they stay the same.
March 31, 2010: “Obama to Propose More Oil Drilling in Gulf.”
June 18, 2008: “Bush Urges Congress to End Coastal Drilling Ban.”
And oh, what a difference almost two years make:By urging lawmakers to lift the federal ban and work with coastal states to open up more areas of the outer continental shelf to exploration, Bush is reinforcing a similar proposal endorsed yesterday by John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate, opposes it.
