Barack Obama supported the energy policy before he didn't

Barack Obama today in South Dakota suggests the United States does not have a good energy policy. He says "they don't have an energy policy that would actually weaken Iran and take money out of their pockets." I assume by "they" he means the GOP. He goes on to say we need to stop our dependence on foreign oil.
Well, I would point out that Barack Obama voted in favor of the present energy policy when it was put to a vote on June 28, 2005 — the very energy policy he does not now like.
John McCain voted against that energy policy.
I await Barack Obama's backpedaling on this. Every time he stands on the little record he does have, it's something he realizes he has to disown.
It's like the Democrats have nominated the love child of Michael Dukakis and John Kerry and then declared George McGovern his god-father (or is that gaia-mother in the Democrat party).
