He was for it before he was against it

Obama is accusing McCain of pulling his energy policy straight out of “the Chaney playbook,” favoring oil, etc. As MSNBC reports, there is an interesting twist to this story:

However, Obama himself voted for a 2005 energy bill backed by Bush that included billions in subsidies for oil and natural gas production, a measure Cheney played a major role in developing. McCain opposed the bill on grounds it included billions in unnecessary tax breaks for the oil industry.

Hat tip my wife.
