Bush Trips Up McCain on Offshore Drilling

| Wed Jun. 18, 2008 9:48 AM EDT

Yesterday, John McCain gave a speech announcing that he is reversing his position on offshore drilling: he's now strongly in favor.

Today, in a move that must have Rick Davis and Charlie Black pulling their hair out, President Bush will publicly proclaim his support for McCain's idea. President Bush should have to refund the McCain campaign for all the money it spent on these ads.

Update: This is putting McCain-supporting Florida Republicans, all of whom opposed offshore drilling, in an awkward position.
