The McCain campaign has released a statement defending Barack Obama from the charge of flip-flopping on offshore drilling. They cite Obama saying, “This wasn’t really a new position,” and then provide five examples of Obama panning drilling. There’s been a lot of talk as to whether it is better to portray Obama as a shameless flip-flopper or a liberal who is out of step with mainstream American opinion, especially since these two charges can undercut one another. In this press release, at least, they’ve clearly decided that the out-of-the-mainstream liberal tag is the way to go.
