You know, I hate to invoke Henley's Law for the umpteenth time, but this "foreign oil" thing makes me totally nuts. I mean, here you have a highly fungible, eminently transportable commodity. All it takes is to ensure that Crude A arrives at Point B is a basic market and some big boats. The Obama line that we should stop borrowing billions of dollars from SCARY CHINA to give to EVIL SAUDI ARABIA for their MUSLIM OIL is perfectly indicative of the political bankruptcy at the heart of the Democratic project. The idea that we should cease purchasing oil that originated in this or that country as a kind of economic sanction to punish governments we don't like for being Muslim and Scary and Evil is right on par, morally and intellectually, with the idea that we should invade them, kill their leaders, and convert everyone else to Christianity. The reason we should seek to reduce consumption of all oil is that it's a non-renewable, dirty resource of declining recoverability which has deranged millennia-old patterns of human settlement and habitation for the past hundred years. Its point of origin is totally not germane.
