Citing the Gulf of Mexico disaster, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has withdrawn his support for oil drilling off the central California coast, the Associated Press reports.http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2010/05/schwarzenegger-now-opposes-oil-drilling-off-california/1
Speaking this afternoon at a news conference in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger, a Republican being termed out this year, said television images of the Gulf spill changed his mind about the safety of ocean-based oil platforms.
That's a 180-degree turn from Friday, when he backed drilling off Santa Barbara to help narrow the state's $20 billion budget deficit.
I'm glad he finally got it right.
But, basically, he has no foresight and favors whatever is popular at the moment.
