Why doesn't Obama drill in American oil reserves?

We have tons of our own oil up north, yet we still fight for middle eastern oil which doesn't make much sense to me.

    becasue Obama doesn't drill anywhere. And in case you haven't followed the news, Shell was given a permit to drill in the very sensitive Alaska area, and Shell themselves, after averting a near devistating disaster, decided they weren't ready yet. So get this....of all the oil companies, the US government gave a permit to Shell oil, and Shell oil itself decided after attempting and failing to get two drilling rigs in place, that it was even too dangerous for them to attemp.....give you an clues?

    55% of our Oil comes from America.

    The other comes from

    Canada (29%)

    Saudi Arabia (14%)

    Venezuela (11%)

    Nigeria (10%)

    Mexico (8%)

    The old myth that "we are fighting wars for oil" is a lie.

    because the E.P.A and their lobbyists control the thinking of obama when it comes to drilling..
