    For Senator McCain, the flip-flop everyone focused on is his proposal to resume offshore drilling. As the Washington Post notes: “McCain's announcement is a reversal of the position he took in his 2000 presidential campaign . . .”


    The charges against Senator Obama over the last week have been more numerous and apparently much more difficult to explain away.

    I understand that the reason McCain "flip-flopped" was because the facts have changed. ie -in 2000, oil was less expensive, therefore now it is economical to drill off shore

    I'm surprised to see you start a thread like this. Am I to take this to mean Obama can no longer count on your support?
