    McCain's announcement is a reversal of the position he took in his 2000 presidential campaign and a break with environmental activists, even as he attempts to win the support of independents and moderate Democrats. Since becoming the presumptive GOP nominee in March, McCain has presented himself as a friend of the environment by touting his plans to combat global warming and his opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and in the Everglades.
    There's a shock.
    His mind is not for rent, to any god or government.

          It's easier to agree with your audience. All of these flip-flops are slowly going to tear him apart.

            Yep. He must have been asleep during John Kerry's run.

                McCain will be speaking across the street from me about this issue. The good old boys in the crowd have their equipment on stand by for some drilling.

                Guess he was against it before he was for it.

                  Geez, McCain flip-flops more than a carp with a hook in its mouth.
                  “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

                  Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                    I'm guessing this comment was typed with sarcasm behind it.

                        When a Democrat does it, he's flip-flopping.

                        When a Republican does it, it's adjusting opinions in the face of new information.

                        So shut up your mouths.

                            I've reached the conclusion that McCain has been either for everything, or against everything, at one time or another.

                            Hes got all the bases covered.

                              Well, normally, I avoid the political threads.
