for the first time he advocated the use of nuclear power, domestic drilling...

NO, HE DID NOT. He said:

That means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country. It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development.

So, rather than accepting that present nuclear power technology is safe enough to use he holds out for a 'new generation'. By his standards that new generation may never arrive and, therefore, will not be implemented under his presidency.

And he did not advocate for offshore drilling. He said we have to make tough decisions about offshore drilling. The 'tough decision' is, "Gee, I'm sorry, it might not be politically expedient, but I am going to make the tough call and continue to forbid offshore drilling."

As usual, his language is Orwellian.

0bama is so mid-20th Century. Unfortunately for him, there's fewer all the time who'll buy his doublespeak.

Obama: "That means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country. It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development."

So, rather than accepting that present nuclear power technology is safe enough to use he holds out for a ‘new generation’. By his standards that new generation may never arrive and, therefore, will not be implemented under his presidency.

And he did not advocate for offshore drilling. He said we have to make tough decisions about offshore drilling. The ‘tough decision’ is, “Gee, I'm sorry, it might not be politically expedient, but I am going to make the tough call and continue to forbid offshore drilling.”

As usual, his language is Orwellian.

To continue your thought from above: Notice that these “key words” created the Graham's support for cap and Tax: Stating he will support new nukes and drill offshore. But will his administration's actions match the words that subverted Graham?

good points — there’s a gigantic difference between what he said and actually advocating anything significant in either area

we should be allowing maximum use of our best domestic energy sources and enabling a major push on nuclear power (just get the flippin’ govts out of the way!)

let economics and markets determine what happens without ridiculous govt. impediments, delays, and red tape

Also, he never said drilling had to be off OUR shores. He has already given a hefty chunk of change to Brazil (another leftist paradise) to drill off (their) shore, so that they can then sell it to us, thereby giving them money for their leftist project but changing nothing for the US.
