The truth

“I feel quite strongly that as long as we have our military in the Middle East fighting so that we can continue to purchase oil from that region, we have an obligation to find alternatives to foreign oil. It is difficult to justify the death of even one soldier when we are not doing everything in our power to explore options for oil within our country.”

I didn't understand the context of this quote when I first read it. My first reaction was, "yeah, that's a good point - we should be doing everything we can to get ourselves off of foreign oil so that we don't have to kiss so much Arab butt." I didn't realize it marked a change in Republican rhetoric. I guess I always assumed that, driving force or fringe benefit, oil was involved.
