    In the Energy Debate between Palin and Obama…Obama Lost​

    Ben Voth @ American Thinker:

    You know we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices. If we’re going to take control of our energy future, and can start avoiding these annual gas price spikes that happen every year when the economy starts getting better, world demand starts increasing, turmoil in the Middle East or some other parts of the world, if we’re going to stop being at the mercy of these world events, then we need a sustained, all-of-the-abovestrategy that develops every available source of American energy – oil, gas, wind, solar, and nuclear, and biofuels, and more.​

    President Obama made these remarks in February of 2012 at the University of Miami. The President was criticizing the longstanding argument of political rival Sarah Palin, who urges the nation to “drill, baby, drill.”

    Palin expounded on these sentiments in 2010:

    Although the Left chooses to mock the mantra of “drill, baby, drill,” and they ignorantly argue against the facts pertaining to the need for America to responsibly develop her domestic supply of natural resources, surely they can’t argue the national security implications of relying on foreign countries to extract supplies that America desperately needs for industry, jobs, and security. Some of the countries we’re now reliant upon and will soon be beholden to can easily use energy and mineral supplies as a weapon against us.​
    In 2011, in an interview with the CBS affiliate WTKR in Hampton Roads, Virginia, the president contradicted his own remarks suggesting that oil prices cannot be lowered by arguing:

    We’re talking to oil producers around the world and letting them know it’s in their interest to make sure that high oil prices don’t end up hurting the world economy.​

    There is absolutely no reason why America should shell out billions of dollars to Arab countries who are Hell bent destroying America, when there is more oil under American soil than those bastards could ever hope to find under their soil.

    Of course, when the destruction of one's country comes from within from the highest sources, like the Office of the President, the Arab sheiks just go on laughing and collecting those billions.
