Obama to Open Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling for First Time

White House officials hope Wednesday's announcement will attract support from Republicans, who adopted a chant of "Drill, baby, drill" during 2008's presidential campaign.

Well, this looks like a flawed negotiating tactic, giving the Republicans what they want and then hoping for cooperation. Like giving up on single payer and hardly supporting a public option in health care reform proposals. See how much Republican support that got.

Lots of luck in getting Republican votes for a carbon tax or cap and trade.
