Obama allows limited offshore drilling

I applaud President Obama for his recent decision to allow some offshore drilling for oil. According to CNSNews, however, during the campaign,
Obama slammed his Republican rival John McCain (Ariz) for his support of opening the nation's coastline for oil exploration and drilling, calling it 'political posturing' and and ineffective way to gain energy independence.

I predict obama's allowing limited offshore drilling is a gimick. Using this "promised change of hear" he is hoping to boost Dem. chances in the fall election. After said election, this temporary change in policy will quitely change again.
