Drill, Barack, Drill: Obama Reverses Position On Offshore Drilling (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

President Obama announced today a new energy policy that will open up waters along the southern Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and part of Alaska to offshore oil and gas drilling.

The new policy represents a reversal not only of the current moratorium on any new oil drilling off most U.S. shores, but also of President Obama's own support of the moratorium during the 2008 campaign.

And of course, the policy also revives the oft-heard 2008 McCain/Palin campaign rally cry, "Drill, baby, drill."

Seizing upon the opportunity to create a highlight reel featuring Republicans rabidly chanting, "Drill, baby, drill," we present to you this video: "Drill, Barack, Drill."
