I try not to get political on this blog, but seeing that I am a Democrat and writing to support the comments of a Repuiblican I thought it would be OK just this once.Having just read the FANTASTIC book “Three Cups of Tea” this comment from Mike Huckabee really hit home:
“Every time we put our credit card in the gas pump, we’re paying so that the Saudis get rich — filthy, obscenely rich, and that money then ends up going to funding madrassas,” schools “that train the terrorists,” said Huckabee. “America has allowed itself to become enslaved to Saudi oil. It’s absurd. It’s embarrassing.” Huckabee said “I would make the United States energy independent within 10 years and tell the Saudis they can keep their oil just like they can keep their sand, that we won’t need either one of them.”
Go get ’em Mike! The full CNN article can be read HERE.
