    I love the liberal mind. "we are for clean air"
    well we all are
    Cutting the amount of oil we import is a great idea. Its an idea that in 2008 we had finally found the right legislation to start down that path
    Libs whats his plan?

    On a side note, Its about the jobs stupid
    its not about the oil

    Apparently his Doctrine to lower imports consists of getting the cost of energy so high that nobody other then the uber rich can afford it.

    Cutting consumption doesn't necessarily mean cutting imports.

    Whatever it is it will end up costing the consumers up the ass.

    I can hardly wait.

    Well as usual I see the liberal has no more of an answer as to how Obama is going to reduce our dependence of foreign oil than he does
    I ask why
    I alos ask does any-one realize its about the jobs?

    The distinction between imported and domestic oil is shaky at best. It all pretty much gets sold in the international market.

    When we give leases to oil companies to drill on U.S. lands/waters, it's really no longer our oil. The oil companies have bought it from us at very low prices,

    then they sell it back to us, essentially. Or more precisely, they sell it to the highest bidder.

    See with respect, you missed the point
    Its about the jobs, Its not about the oil
    Latest release from the Labour Force Survey. Friday, March 11, 2011
    Imagine a 7.8% UE rate with over one trillion dollars saved on a failed stimulus?
    This is where Canada is
    Shale oil is a huge reason as to why
