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.

    Obama doesn't drill anywhere.

    The real question you should ask is why the OIL COMPANIES who do the drilling, don't use the oil leases they have. And why they sell all their oil overseas. Since they are getting oil from US owned property, they should have to sell it to the US only. Then we wouldn't have to buy oil from overseas.

    The reason we aren't drilling up north is because it would trash the area ecologically and they don't need to drill up there since they aren't drilling to capacity with what they have anyway.

    It's a problem that the oil companies have created to keep prices and profits as high as possible.

    Tree hugging hippies, Obama cares about them too (their votes anyway).

    Because Obama is an idiot and doesn't want America to succeed.
