Barack Obama stated yesterday he would be willing to open Florida’s coast for more oil drilling, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Back in June 2008, Obama stated, “We can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

Yet now he’s open to drilling our way out of the problem?

In his interview with The Palm Beach Post, Obama stated, “My interest is in making sure we’ve got the kind of comprehensive energy policy that can bring down gas prices.”

I guess Obama had some time to reflect on the announcement by President George W. Bush, on July 14, 2008, that he would lift the ban on offshore drilling.

After the announcement from President Bush indicated to the world that the U.S. was prepared to take action on the escalating gas prices, the prices of crude oil plummeted.

Crude oil had traded as high as $147 a barrel on July 11. This month, crude oil was at $124.08 a barrel.

So basically, Obama is on the same page with Bush and McCain now?
