Actually, it is the other way around - the Repulicans want us to stay dependant on foreign oil and the Democrats want to veer away from carbon based energy as they look to the inevitable future without fossil fuels.
If you don't think so, just look back to the 1980's and 1990's at how republicans obstructed all attempts to go green and keep us using foreign oil.
Look at the real facts and stop being so partisan.

Well BOB, how would you driveto work. Ever fly on a plane o get you there on time, without foreign oil our economy wold go into the crapper. Another thing about oil is there are not enough oil rigs to go around to as they are behind in building them. And how would you get those essential things that are now builti in china.With out foreign oil our economy would be in the crapper. And it is shallower than our oil we drill for. So less costly to drill for.So if you do not like the use of oil just quit driving that car or truck you have and walk.

Looks to me like we wouldnt have to rely on foreign oil.Obama sees what is available in the Gulf so he halts all drilling.

Jim that is only a temporary stop to access the situation and maybe get better and more modern equipment on those wells. As they have already done in other countries. And other countries require 2 more wells to be driled for safety incase of a blowout or leaking well. BP is just now drilling those 2 wells to take the oil from the ground to stop that leaking well in the gulf. Yes and he required them to drill 2 other wells instead of one as they wanted to do to stop the oil. Canada requires 2 wellelas to be drilled to to suck the oil out of the primary well in case they main well blows out. as pther countries do also.

How about buying an electric car slick, or at some time choke on Co2
