WASHINGTON (AFP) President Barack Obama will on Wednesday seek to wrest the political debate from turmoil in the Middle East, to a related topic -- cutting America's thirst for foreign oil.
Obama will make a speech at Georgetown University in Washington to outline his plan to forge energy security for the United States, launching a string of events designed to drum up support for a key piece of his agenda.
Since his State of the Union address in January, Obama has hammered away at the themes of education and job creation, yet events in the Arab world, and after Japan's quake-tsunami tragedy, kept pulling him off topic.
"The speech will mark a transition in our public communications, and kick off a concerted effort around energy security," a senior US official said on condition of anonymity.
Obama will stress four areas where the United States needs to forge progress to reach a goal to cut the amount of oil that the country imports from overseas by a third in 10 years, another official said.
As a candidate and as president, Obama has several times laid out plans to cut US dependence on insecure foreign energy sources, and to wean itself off supplies from nations like Venezuela or regions like the Middle East.
Energy policy, especially in the area of rising gasoline prices has the capacity to be a key political issue over the next year, and into 2012 when Obama runs for a second four-year term.

God help us!!
Obama is an idiot.
Should read “Obama to put the jinx on reliable energy”.
An idiot, perhaps. A driven, determined and undeterrable enemy of this nation, most definitely.
Waging war.. and getting re-elected.. so he can finish his mission.
Who will he sacrifice? Don't expect the media to tell ya.

Obama Cracking Down on Jell-O
I want to get a head start on Obamargy by issuing an IPO for home generators powered by treadmills.
Must nationalize Big Oil. It’s all their fault.
Pray for America
What a cowardly weasel he is, hiding out at universities since that is the biggest collective of Leftist defectives he can find.
Both the brain-washed “children,” because BO says they are “children” until they are 26, and their loony professors are the few remaining faithful who are unable to see what a failure he is. These early campaign speeches will do absolutely nothing to win support among sensible voters, who will remember the long list of abuses he has inflicted on this country.
Cut our reliance on foreign oil? So how does this gel with basically putting Brazil in the oil business and then telling them we’ll buy from them????
Is he stupid or evil? Both?
The speech was a joke. Drill Baby Drill is was said as stupid but he kept pushing Natural Gas. Where does he think gas comes from?
Summer of recovery Part 2.
Breaking ground on new Ethanol plants, “Won’t help us now !”
>> What happened to JOBS, the laser-like focus, Mr. Pres__ent?
That’s somewhere in the space between his thumb and forefinger.
Gee whiz! Looks like somebody from one of those Pirates of the Caribbean movies, or sump’ng.
That grant to the Amish buggy factory is much better than a bullet train to nowhere. Heard the company in mass. Making green energy solar panels ,now moving to china, said hell no they were not going to give the tax payers their 500 million back. LOL
I know exactly what his agenda is. I do not support it.
Just a moment ago, his saving home mortage tv commercial aired. Talk about communist tactics - the president this, the president that, the president's bill will save you all, the president, the president, the president. Gee, declaring him "the president" so many times, one might get the impression he's worried there's a question of him holding the office. Over compensating there, huh, Hussein.
It is an empty slogan unless you actually start
\ You empty suit!
Oh No! I just bought a car that doesn’t run on that hopey- changey crap
U.S. Gas Consumption Could Drop 20% in 20 Years
The National Resources Defense Council says that by 2020, the improvements will be equivalent to taking 32 million cars off the road, while the government projects the actual number of new cars will rise an additional 27 million by 2020.
Add this to that article;
How big an impact does improved fuel economy have?
Alex Gomez says: If more than $4.00 a gallon for gasoline, home owners making loans from banks to pay for a months worth of heating oil, keeping us Latinos limited in the English language by teaching us math, science and other subjects in the Spanish language and 11.6% unemployment rate among Latinos is your way of "winning the future" then you and Charlie Sheen have a very twisted way of looking at the word "winning".
I swear, that man has the faultiest laser evah. Can’t seem to focus on anything.
Maybe Government Motors should just make cars that run by burning dollar bills. Then, Bernake can just print an infinite amount and had them to Americans as free fuel. We would no longer need to import oil! We would all be powering our cars on an apparently infinitely renewable fuel!
(What happened to JOBS, the laser-like focus, Mr. Pres__ent?)LOL!
Sad part about it, most of the voters will believe Obama.
I’ve often asked my mother how Hitler could have gained popularity. She said the people believed what they were told.
Even as we speak, the Conqueror of Libya, “President” oBOMBa, is doing everything in his power to raise gasoline prices by restricting foreign oil imports, AFTER banning US offshore drilling!
Notice who obama sides with in Europe, the Middle East, South America, etc. He sides with the LEFT, with the MUSLIMS, with REVOLUTIONARIES. He disrespects/shuns Israel, England, France, Germany, our allies.
obama is siding WITH the enemies of the United States of America, and attempting to destroy our allies.
Take down this bast@ard in OUR White House. Work at it with the tenacity that the left displays when THEY attempt to take us down. We must say our prayers, work hard, SMART and we must never let up till we take THEM DOWN.
His focus was to create more government jobs and destroy private sector jobs.
create more government jobs and destroy private sector jobs
He ought to string a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner on the WH.
Only fair, yaknow.. He don’t get much credit for anything he’s done, well, not from his complicit media anyway.. ;-]
