    I think that misses the mark. We are reliant on other countries right now, hopefully mostly friendly, for products that require REE. Our high-tech military is certainly reliant on them. However, China now controls the choke-point with its monopoly. I hope that we are not yet ready to condemn our future to delivering pizza, and that we could become a bit of a manufacturing power again. We already saw China use their REE monopoly against Japan a few months back.

    These resources, REE and petroleum, do have real national security concerns with regard to our economy. My argument for domestic oil was not price, as I do know better. It was economic security. I was one who waited in gas lines in 74.

    That's a bunch of baloney.

    I thought it was obvious. He killed thousands of jobs.

    Actually, some studies show this to be common among conservatives. They'll be intentional wasteful or destructive just to spite liberals.

    Maybe they believe in the myth of the oil spill. Non Libbos know that the spill was a hoax, just like climate change.

    that's what Obama and his cronies must believe. I haven't heard much about the mega spill in the Gulf, have you? Gheeze so much crude spilled, and was going to effect the eco system for hundreds of years, now all the sudden it disappeared? Must be nice to be a liberal, and live so disconnected from reality.

    He did not say the US has the largest reserves.

    He made it worse by willfully slowing the cleanup effort and, worse, by injecting political gamesmanship into an engineering problem.
