  •  Venezuela? I can't think of even one time when (0+ / 0-)

    the President said anything about needing to wean ourselves from Venezuelan oil.  Most of our foreign oil comes from Venezuela, Nigeria, and Mexico, and I've never heard the President mention any of those countries as being problematic oil sources.

    But the middle east does produce a large percentage of the world's oil, and I know that lots of progressive believe that any military activity in the middle east is "for oil", so reducing the percentage of oil produced by the middle east might lead to fewer military conflicts there, no?

    I'm not for the keystone xl, but it seems that there would be progressive motive to lessening the impact that the middle east has on the world's oil resources.
