Barack Obama reversed himself twice in a single policy proposal. Obama has been a firm supporter of the affirmative action policies for minorities that got him his education and a concerned environmentalist who has opposed off-shore drilling.
To the surprise of supporters and political observers, the Democratic hopeful found a way to nuance his way around both lifelong beliefs.
Obama explained to TheSpoof.com:
"Since the current fuel crisis has caused the sell-off of so many gas-guzzling pick up trucks, the remaining red neck drivers of Ford 150's and Chevy Pick ups have now become a minority group. By my life long belief in affirmative action, I have no other choice except to support off- shore drilling of oil to help this poor underprivileged minority. But I promise the American people that as soon as this group gains a just status with the rest of Americans we will end this temporary advantage!"
