Quote of the Day (February 2, 2011)

We are dependent on shaky governments for crude oil
Steve Markowitz at EnduringSense:
"The current Egyptian events again bring the forefront the issue of America’s dependence on oil from unstable regimes in the Middle East. While Egypt is not an oil producer, the Suez Canal is important in the supply chain for oil. In addition, the instability with other Middle Eastern countries increases the shipping risk at the chokepoint that is the Straits of Hormuz. The danger of America’s oil dependence on risky sources should have been addressed years, if not decades ago. However, politicians, mainly on the Left, banded together with radical environmentalists to hinder America’s production in coal, oil and nuclear energy... During the presidential campaign, Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin used the slogan; 'drill, baby, drill'. This should be a national rallying cry for what should be America’s most important program of this generation."
