Is this an honest change of heart from the President of the World, or do Bill and Hill have 2012 in their sights and are starting to do more cold and calculated angling than Babe Winkelman at the Tip-Up Town festival?

From Politico:

Former President Bill Clinton said Friday that delays in offshore oil and gas drilling permits are “ridiculous” at a time when the economy is still rebuilding, according to attendees at the IHS CERAWeek conference.

Clinton spoke on a panel with former President George W. Bush that was closed to the media. Video of their moderated talk with IHS CERA Chairman Daniel Yergin was also prohibited.

But according to multiple people in the room, Clinton, surprisingly, agreed with Bush on many oil and gas issues, including criticism of delays in permitting offshore since last year’s Gulf of Mexico spill.

Thirteen years ago, as president, Bill Clinton wasn’t exactly drill-happy in the crude oil extraction sense of the term.

Whatever Clinton’s motive for saying that delaying drilling permits is ridiculous, he might have just cost himself a chance to again serve as president-for-a-day in the current administration.
