Yesterday, I asked readers if they shouldn’t be questioning the idea that Barack Obama seemed willing to ship $2 billion of your money off to Brazil to finance the state-run oil business Petrobras. Did that happen?……I mean the questioning.

I’m not the only one who’s questioning the move. So is former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin.

These environmentalists are putting our nation in peril and forcing us to rely on unstable and hostile foreign countries. Mr. Obama can stop the extreme tactics and exert proper government authority to encourage resource development and create jobs and health benefits in the U.S.; instead, he chooses to use American dollars in Brazil that will help to pay the salaries and benefits for Brazilians to drill for resources when the need and desire is great in America.

Buy American is a wonderful slogan, but you can’t say in one breath that you want to strengthen our economy and stimulate it, and then in another ship our much-needed dollars to a nation desperate to drill while depriving us of the same opportunity.

Hopenchange or something!
