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
