    ...............In his presidential campaign, President Obama criticized the Bush administration for being too soft on the oil industry and vowed to support greener energy forms.

    But, once in office, President Obama ended up backing offshore drilling, bowing to political and fiscal realties, even as his administration's own scientists and Democratic lawmakers warned about its risks.

    There is a series of books called "The Making of a President," and in them, several of the candidates over the years have admitted that they end up doing exactly the opposite of what they campaigned on due to reality. There is a difference between campaigning and governing.

    It is a rotten practice, because most know change is not done in a short period of time. It will take decades to eliminate oil, long past Obama's time.
