I think you will see many people defect to the Green Party or not vote for Obama after he goes ahead with more off-shore drilling. The unfortunate fact is that for all of his campaign rhetoric, he is as much in the pocket of lobbyists as any other candidate.
I know the Democrats will lose my vote if he expands offshore drilling. I agree with the above statement. I personally feel we need a new party, and the Green Party is it. All Democrats and Republicans have basically become money hungry liars that are being controlled by money. I thought Obama was different, and I am still hoping he is. However, I haven’t seen a whole lot to make me feel that his Presidency won’t end up like any of the others, a big fat lie.
Yes, he will lose a lot of environmentalist support if he expands off-shore oil drilling, but the environmentalists will have difficulty finding a party that can actually get elected and impose their green policies. The Green Party is almost a joke at this point thanks to the fact that one of their biggest issues used to be the legalization of marijuana, though it is gaining a lot more respect, and it will be interesting to see how many votes they can get in the upcoming elections. The Democrats historically have been the more eco-frindly of the two major parties, but if Obama expands off-shore drilling then they will likely lose this title.
