It was oil after all

With all of the shock over the win of the Democrats in the election, little reported was the statements made by the President the weekend before the election. After years of denying that our war in Iraq was over oil and calling anyone unpatriotic for implying so, the President turned the tables and used the idea as part of his repeated stump speeches saying, " You can imagine a world in which these extremists and radicals got control of energy resources and then you can imagine them saying 'we're going to pull a bunch of oil off the market to run your price of oil up unless you do the following...'" In other words, fighting in Iraq for oil has now moved from being an unpatriotic idea to becoming a platform plank. Of course the Iraqies knew it all along. 95% of Iraqies polled still believe the entire invasion was about oil to begin with.
